Default Mexican Town Celebrates Easter With ‘Burning of the Jews’

A small Chiapas town ends its Holy Week observance by parading Jewish effigies through the streets, then setting them on fire.

Quote:
The world is full of charming Easter traditions, but this isn’t one of them.

A newspaper in Mexico is detailing Sunday’s “burning of the Jews,” an annual tradition in Coita, a small town in the state of Chiapas. As part of the custom, locals spend the middle of their Holy Week making Jewish effigies — a reference to Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus before his crucifixion.

The fake Jews are then displayed for three days in different parts of the town, serving as an example of poor conduct.

They’re ultimately paraded through the streets on Easter Sunday, with local children assigned to stand in front of them and collect money for flammable materials.

The article notes that the tradition differs in Coita, where locals set fire to the effigies on Easter itself, rather than the day before, as in other towns. The burning is followed by a dance, where locals eat a corn treat made with cocoa. The article says the custom “strengthens” the culture of the Zoque, an indigenous people in southern Mexico who were converted to Catholicism.

The ceremony seems to echo, to some extent, the “Running of the Jew” event depicted in Sacha Baron Cohen’s 2006 movie “Borat” — a work of fiction.

The Chiapas Herald takes an uncritical view of the ritual, reporting that it “fosters unity and respect” and “purifies the soul.”

That's an attitude I've never understood. I Jesus was here to die for humanity's sins then His death was part of the deal. Judas and the others were simply playing their ordained roles in an act that had to happen just so. Therefore being mad at them makes no sense.

LMAO. Fucking Mexicans are absurd. Did you guys see the saint of death worshiping idiots make the news again? Human sacrifices and all of that shit? It's been around for a while, and the saint of death is a big thing in the criminal culture, but they're getting ridiculous.

Mexico is starting to give Africa a run for its money.

They're just going back to their Aztec roots is all. They were into human sacrifice in an industrial scale. Just now there are so many more people to rip the hearts out of.

Typical of you Protestant/Atheists/Socialist to be willfully ignorant of the origins of the ethnic and cultural origins of this observance.
