Brooklyn Bridge Park becomes vibrant and diverse

From the Brooklyn Paper:

A Santeria-style shocker has washed up on the shores of DUMBO — a bag full of dead birds, fish, food and even some cash!

Pro photographer Steve Harris spotted the macabre mess during an otherwise pleasant stroll last Sunday in the park at the foot of Main Street, just east of Empire–Fulton Ferry State Park.

Inside a soaking blue sack were decapitated turkeys, a smaller bird, dead fish, beans, corn, root vegetables, plantains, and six $1 bills.

“I was so horrified,” said Harris. “I’m a photographer — normally I would go get my tripod and come back and shoot it. But this time I was so taken aback, I took a few pictures with my iPhone and fled.”

Harris believes that the latest incident may be linked to our ongoing coverage of the injured Cayuga duck in Prospect Park, the latest in a months-long saga of mysterious happenings in the natural area that includes dumped chicken heads and intestines along the lakefront.

Cuban Americans and Puerto Ricans have been a part of this citys fabric for over a hundred years. Desi Arnez was a Santeria follower. Our city government and our civil society need to dialogue with recent immigrants about what is acceptable here. It's not that hard.

Welcome immigrants! Making our City more primitive, savage, and disgusting with every passing day. Can't wait until the Human Sacrifices start! Don't worry, the ACLU will defend your "right"!

Maybe the Santeria practitioners could solicit donations from wealthy Santeristas such as Desi Arnez, and they could build a multi-million dollar Santeria house of worship, similar to the Cordoba mosque.

Perhaps it could be located in an ├╝ber white liberal area such as the upper west side, Park Slope, or maybe even Lino's neighborhood!

“I don’t want to jump to the conclusion that anytime there is a dead animal in a bag, it’s Santeria,” said Miguel de la Torre, a professor at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver. “Many times there are copycats who don’t understand the religious traditions and copy traditions they don’t understand.”

What would we do without professors of theology!!! I'm glad that he clarified that these are ONLY fake Santeristas, not authentic Santeristas!!!

I can't wait until the "religion of peace" starts slaughtering sheep in the streets during Ramadan!!!!

Vibrant!!! Diverse!!!!

"Religion of peace"? Christianity is all about bloody torture and murder, including a ceremony where its followers eat the body of their god and drink his blood. And let's not forget the Spanish Inquisition and the Crusades, all in the name of the "prince of peace". Puh-leeze.

The Spanish Inquisition and the Crusades happened centuries ago. Which is where today's Muslims seem to be stuck.

No, but they do slaughter sheep in the street during Ramadan.

Do they really do that?

It is actually Eid al-Adha, The Muslim Feast of Sacrifice, and yes, it does involve the ritualistic, public, outdoor slaughter of goats and sheep. This year it is 15th, 16th, or 17th of November according to which Islamic tradition you follow. It celebrates life according to the Holy Koran.

You and your people should go back to wherever you came from!

Yes, let's not forget the Spanish Inquisition! It only happened hundreds of years ago!!

But pay no attention to any acts of terrorism committed in the name of Islam in the past 20 years!

And definitely ignore those chicken entrails and decapitated goats on Queens beaches! If you so much as notice these things - we will brand you INTOLERANT!! We will drag your hate filled ass before the INQUISITION of DIVERSITY and MULTICULTURALISM!!!

Puh-leeze.

Indeed.

Hahaha yeah right like these 500BC cave people will listen and change.
They want to live here like they do in their home stone age cesspools.

Live it to these liberal's. The same "educated ones" who would try and make deals with the bin Laden gang.
As the saying goes:
"Snakes can only be expected to behave as snakes"
History repeats itself Remember the Romans. deport all these f*cking savages now

They could use as a model the Kaballah temples and Scientology centers being thrown up in every rich white neighborhood in America, financed by people like Madonna and Tom Cruise.

That way our children will have a full menu of choices.

OMG!!!! Dead birds, fish, food and even some cash! I've never seen that before. Oh...let me take a picture on my Iphone.

Get a life people. The only crime is that they used a non biodegradable sack and the dude should have taken the 6 bucks and gotten a pint of beer. It's not like a dead cow washed up on the shore.

Every single religion practices some sort of sacrifice.

We should be crying about the indeterminist amount of crude oil that’s been poising the waters for the past month.

Exactly that - a story.

And don't forget the Big Kahuna sacrifice of all time: JC, the Lamb of God.

It's such a typical lib move for them to bring up the Spanish Inquisition. The real reason they do this is because they are most likely teenagers that want to get back at their parents for trying to get them into religion. I see this tactic used all the time. They basically have a "NO YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP DAD" attitude.

I understand your point, George. But that wasn't exactly a sacrifice, not in the ritual sense anyway. More like a wrongful execution. But let's not digress since we agree w/ each other.
