This is the brain-child of the criminal element which does not have any connection with the chrisitian faith.
I would suspect that the term 'Saint Death' is a horrible translation of "Holy Death' that refers to Christ's own death on the cross and nothing with some bimbo's death of his own choosing. Their deaths are the result of their own choosing and nothing to do with religion.
The last paragraph is ludicrous as well. There are no miracles except in the innermost corners of their craniums.

Mexicans have returned to their old ways of human sacrifice and death worship. So why are we allowing them to come here again?

Of course superstition will always exist in every culture. Even in the face of scientific evidence, they will still believe in these false idols. The reason people are disillusioned with catholicism is because it does not condone behaviors considered criminal or immoral such as murder, extortion, theft, kidnapping and the like that so many people are engaging in because it allows for easy money. We're beginning to see the surge of a culture of easy money with no accountability.

Poverty……..NO

Drug war………YES…………….

As long as Americans are willing to spend billions of dollars per year the Cartels will rule.
They have more money than the whole country of Mexico.
How can Mexico fight that?
Close the border and the drug war will end………

Yes close the border with Mexico. Use the military to enforce it. Back the border up a half mile on our side and make it a no mans land. Anyone caught in it is subject to be shot.

The Catholic church allows many mediators this is why they have sorcery. No one ever looks at the real reason Mexico is so cursed by God. All the false teaching by it's false pope.

Mexico is a beautiful place but it infested with sorcery, how can God bless mexico?

They will merit what the sorcerers and magicians were punished with in the old testament.

our last paragraph is not to clever also "there are no miracles except" and it's all relative to the individual .
