Too fucked up to be "Christ like"...

Like many of you, I am still in shock after seeing the TV program about the situation in Akwa Ibom state. For those that do not live in the UK, please watch it here, that is the first part, there are six parts up on youtube, so make sure you see them all. My article on the wife of lucifer, you can read here.

I know a lot has been said about raising money to help the CRARN and the other groups working with these children. Having seen part of the documentary now, Ill like to join my voice in arresting the bishop and other parents that does similar things to their children.
Can we start a pressure group on the politicians to enact laws stopping this barbarity............and make example of the self-confessed murderer, charlattan who called himself a bishop. And I'm saying this as an evangelical bible-believing christian

Why is it that every bit of news out of Nigeria fills me with more outrage than the last one?

Spent a couple of years living and working in Eket so I can say I've seen some of these so-called child-witches who are left on the street to die or fend for themselves... A couple of expatriates in the establishment I worked with used to pick the kids off the road and ship them to orphanages outside the state for their own safety..
I must confess however that the extent of the problem - going so far as to attempt to kill these kids - was unknown to me.. Unfortunately these belief systems - everything happening due to witchcraft, the "prayer-house" mentality - are so deeply entrenched in the hearts and minds of the uneducated people that almost nothing can shake it out...

Another classic case of how zeal without knowledge can cause serious social problems... Mcheew

It happens all over the world. Wherever there is religion, preaching about evil, we find evil preaching about religion in a most convincing empirical way.
