Juggalos are the name of fans of the music group Insane Clown Posse and are known for their anti-social, dangerous, aberrant, and perverse behavior.
One of these fans took a woman’s finger, cut it off with a machete, drank the blood, and then put the finger in the freezer to eat it later as part of a ‘juggalo ritual’:
Twenty-four-year-old Jonathan Schrap was sentenced Friday on one count of second-degree reckless injury.
A complaint says Schrap and his friends were staging a “ritualistic memorial” at his house in August to commemorate a deceased member of the Juggalos, the name given to Insane Clown Posse fans.
“Where do you go with this? How can this happen? How can this even happen in Green Bay?” Judge John P. Zakowski said at the sentencing, according to the Chicago Tribune.
WBAY-TV reported the woman first allowed Schrap to cut her arm with a machete and drink her blood. She eventually gave permission to Schrap cut off her right pinky finger with a machete, which according to court documents required more than one blow to sever.
“Jon then placed the finger in his freezer where he said he would cook it and eat it later,” court documents said. “The group then attempted to stop the bleeding by using a car cigarette lighter which failed. They then used a blowtorch.”
The mother of the woman’s boyfriend persuaded her to go to the hospital, and staff members called police. The woman said she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the ritual. (source)
If you read the article carefully, you note that the woman’s finger was not cut off by force- she consented to it. This was mutually agreed upon and neither were under the influence of drugs.
This story reminds me of a very disturbing incident from Germany in which two homosexuals met online in a chat room- one was wanting to engaged in cannibalism, the other wanted to be cannibalized. As per their agreement, the men met each other and after sodomizing each other, the cannibalee allowed the cannibal to slice his penis off, after which they cooked and ate it together. Finally, the cannibalee allowed himself to be ritually slaughtered while hanging on meat hooks and was prepared just like an animal and eaten by the cannibal over the next 10 months. When arrested, he said that he did it because it made him sexually aroused.
Deviant behavior is found in every society. Yes, it is true that is appears in certain cultures more than others, such as in Islamic societies because of the influence of Islam. However, evil is still evil coming from the same source and with the same ends although made to appear in society through different channels. However the ends will always be the same- death, torture, human sacrifice, cannibalism, and the sexual abuse of the innocent.
Christ came to save men from the evil caused by original sin. There is no hope outside of Christ, and without Christ anybody will revert back to the darkness that came into the world through original sin.
