How would you feel if you found out your old neighbor was sacrificing animals and maybe humans?

How would you feel if on your own property, in the shed inyour yard your hubby had been doing this?

  • Items of occult worship... the media has done a craptastic job recently when dealing with alternative religions. Be interesting to see if there was anything 'occult' involved at all, or if it's just a shed.

  • Well that's disturbing. It would very disturbing if it was a neighbor, it would be even more disturbing if it was your own husband. I would like to think I know what my hubby is up to & that he wouldn't be able to do something like that without my knowledge tho.

  • That I can not say. The video says they recovered bones that they think might be human as well as the animal bones. I have the link up now.

    I just figured the timing was great.

  • Hmmm. I eat animals daily so not sure I would care. Humans? Yeah I would be disturbed.

  • Me too, I mean really, that would take a good chunk of time regularly. Even if I hear my hubby doing something in another part of the house I will just go an check in now and then. I can't imagine not knowing.

  • including candles, animal bones, animal skulls, and a machete, in a woman's tool shed

    I'm sure that could be easily explained. Nothing about that says 'occult worship' to me. Is it unusual for someone to own a machete? Reporter seemed to put emphasis on that.

  • I have animal bones in my house, I even had a skull at one point. Of course my ex is a hunter and tends to keep at least one trophy head. Nothing weird about that. I hate that the media jumps on the "occult" bandwagon all the damn time.

  • My father owned a machete for years; he still may, for all I know. He used it for yard work. A well-maintained one can do some serious damage.

  • i would be upset that my DH had kept secrets from me, but the rest really depends on what kinda bones they are...animal, creepy but not that big a deal...human bones and id be pretty freaked out!

    as for the rest...well our garage has tons of candles (for power outages) and we own a machete too...guess were occult members now haha.
