Lamb sacrifice performed for man days before he was ejected onto freeway sign


The family of a man whose body landed on a freeway sign during a car crash says they performed a lamb sacrifice for him days earlier for protection from harm.

Richard Pananian, 20, of Burbank had been battling serious health issues but overcame them, said his cousin, Armen Kardashian. He would not say what the health issues were.

This time, his family wasn’t taking any chances and was determined to protect him, so they performed a matagh, or offering, on Oct. 25. Matagh is a tradition of the Armenian Church and often used to show appreciation to God for saving a life, asking for good health or for peace for deceased loved ones.

...

He was driving on southbound on the 5 Freeway just north of California 134 when his Ford Fiesta rear-ended a pickup truck and overturned, said Officer Edgar Figueroa, a California Highway Patrol spokesman. The CHP said Pananian was not wearing a seat belt.

Honestly the lamb part is the least unusual aspect of the story.

2. If I told him once

I told him a thousand times: "It's a GOAT, a GOAT, not a lamb!'. Dumbass.

6. That's how wrong you are

 

Lamb sacrifice -> mentioned in the Bible -> works -> OK

Seat belt -> NOT mentioned in the Bible -> can't possibly work -> don't

Hope this clarifies the issue.

10. At first the absurd was overwhelming the story

But as I read on and was posting it just seemed more strange, something didn't add up there. Wonder how the investigation will turn out?

7. I am convinced. Can you provide a lamb sacrifice checklist?

 

Sex
Age
Weight
fur color
etc

I mean, there must be guidelines, right?

9. Psychology? Self fulfilling prophesy?

Religious guy with interest in racing, on his way racing to a job in a collision center, has a collusion. And is vaulted up into the heavens. Becoming the goat.

Maybe his religious obsession with symbols got him. Mistaking icons for things that make things happen, is a common problem in old country religion.

11. The symbolism is too thick here

Seems strange, something doesn't add up.

Poor lamb.

13. Primitive religion believes symbols effect. ...

... the things they look like. And sometimes the people that use them. Eg voodoo dolls, luck charms, etc. Often bringing to the owner the things pictured.
