"We don't make anybody get naked. That's a no-no," noted Estrada, who said he performs about one cleansing per week. "Nobody gets naked to do any kind of cleansing, whether it's with meat or with a bird or whatever. Nobody gets naked."

The use of raw meat to cleanse an individual -- be it steak, chicken or pork -- is not unusual in Santeria, but the priest shouldn't press it against another person's body. Instead, he or she instructs the person how to rub it on themselves, over their clothes, Estrada said.

Oh, good. I was starting to think the whole thing sounded crazy. Glad you cleared that up.

/ everybody knows the only way to truly cleanse the soul is to throw magic tap water on a baby...
