A Hawaiian tribe chieftain believes he has found a way to control the Corona Virus outbreak.
Chief Garry Ahulua of the Ka wahine ʻai honua, or earth-eating woman tribe, believes only the human sacrifice of virgins could subdue the anger of the gods.
Although human sacrifice has not been practiced since the introduction of Christianity to the island in the mid-19th century, Chief Aluhua, an ultra-orthodox religious figure in Hawaii, believes ancient traditions can fix modern problems.
“Our ancestors didn’t need vaccines or drugs to heal their bodies. To appease the angry gods we performed the sacrifice of virgins and kept healthy until the White man came and changed our ways,” Chief Ahulua explained on public television.
“Our ancient traditions say that the sacrifice of a virgin can cure symptoms of depression, sexually transmitted diseases, bring wealth, bring fertility and in some cases, bring back the dead to life,” he added during a television interview.
Chief Garry Ahulua also says the ritual sacrifice could be achieved in total legality within the United States because Hawaiian religious practices are protected by the American Indian Religious Freedom Act.
“Our ancient ways are protected by the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, but we would prefer that the virgins be chosen from the Yellow people because they brought this disease to the world,” he added during the 45-minute interview.
Although the origins of the Corona Virus outbreak are not clear, Chief Ahulua believes that the “Yellow people” offended the gods by having sexual intercourse with chickens, a theory that is not currently supported by scientific evidence.
The last human sacrifice of a virgin on the island of Hawaii was reported by Christian missionaries in 1820 to cure a Hawaiian chieftain of small blisters on his lips, an infection historians now ascribe to have been a case of Herpes labialis, commonly known as cold sores.
