The Cross vs Pagan Sacrifice

“In olden times, people used to look for scapegoats in those who were different in appearance and behavior. Then the crucifixion happened and, finally, we started making progress and tried hard to move away from the child sacrifice and witch hunting. We identified, with the compassion of Christ, that these people needed special care so that they would be able to blend into society. But today we are seeing a reversal of revelation with a subtle but obvious return to pagan sacrifice, and the so-called secularists are at a loss, as they should be.” – Surit Dasgupta
