Saint Death

From the AP via the Tucson Citizen:
Hundreds of Mexican devotees of Saint Death - a quasi-Catholic faith that worships the skeletal figure of death - marched through downtown Mexico City yesterday to demand respect for their religion and its followers.

Holding banners reading "Respect Religious Freedom" and "We are not criminals or drug addicts," marchers drawn from some of the city's roughest barrios carried statues of the elegantly clad Grim Reaper down the city's main boulevard.
