Ritualistic Baal worship, in sum, looked a little like this: Adults would gather around the altar of Baal.
Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity.
Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies.
The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of “mother earth.”
The Temple of Baal (also known as the Temple of Bel) was a world famous landmark that was located in Palmyra, Syria. In August 2015, this temple was destroyed by ISIS, and most of the world recoiled in terror at the loss of a “cultural heritage site”. In an attempt to “preserve history”, two exact replicas of the 50 foot arch that stood at the entrance to the temple will be erected in April 2016 in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London.
