Religious group brings sex dolls to sacred place for ‘rituals’

The authorities really blew them up.

A religious group is crushed by Myanmar authorities after they allegedly brought two sex dolls to one of the country’s holiest Buddhist sites to perform an enchantment ritual.

According to state media, the group of eight attempted to enter Shwedagon Pagoda after letting the dolls outside but were detained by the temple’s guards.

Security guards claimed the group stood in the parking lot and began chanting “ritual incantations.”

“While performing their rituals, the security guards of the pagoda called them in for questioning and freed the pagoda area from the dolls,” Myanmar’s Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture said in a statement.

The eight devotees have been charged with “defamation of the Buddhist religion”.

“The staff member who authorized the ritual incantations without seeking the approval of the Shwedagon Pagoda Board of Trustees will have to take strict measures as decided by the Departmental Commission of Inquiry,” the statement continued.
