Yazidis syncretic belief system

The Yazidisf syncretic belief system, which predates Christianity by 2,000 years, is also heavily saturated with a number of pre-Islamic pagan beliefs, which would seem quite bizarre to the regionfs majority Muslim population. gLike ancient Mithraists, they sacrifice bullscWhen they pray they face the sun, like Zoroastriansh. They also refuse gto eat lettuce, pumpkins, and gazelles, [and refuse] to wear dark blueh. The Yazidi community is divided into three castes, the Murids, Sheiks, and Pirs, with members only marrying within their own caste system. Any violation of the social order governed by the caste system is punishable by death.
