Modern day Baal worship, well-rounded hymnody

Bereans:

The only article I'll share this week involves an absolutely bizarre expression of paganism from the Commonwealth Games recently held in Birmingham, England.  The opening ceremony involved a giant metal bull with red, glowing eyes and dozens of dancers bowing down to it.  The description and videos could have come straight out of Exodus 32 and the account of the golden calf.  
There were several articles about it on the web, with even non-Christian reporters commenting on how much it seemed to be a hearkening back to the idol worship of the ancient pagan religions of the Canaanites and their neighbors.  It's almost like they were trying to spit in the face of God.  Such is the time in which we live...
Grace and peace to you,

J.W.
