I'd like to share (although it is disturbing and grotesque) a recent TV program 'Saving Africa's Witch Children' that aired here in Australia the last week. It is worth viewing as the events ram home (yet again) how religion and myth bring about so much tradegy for the young & innocent as well as the rest of society in general.
They relate to many of the issues exposed and placed on this site.
Yet with all of this evidence it is truely annoying that so many people continue to be fooled and fleeced!!
The program was aired on the ABC 4 Corners, site reference is -
There are quite a few other links on this site for further reference.
Quote from 4 Corners -
'Denounced as 'Satan made flesh' by powerful pastors and prophetesses, the children are abandoned, tortured, starved and sometimes even murdered. These same ministers also offer to exorcise the devil from the children for large sums of money. In doing this they have created a remarkable industry and made themselves wealthy, while condemning many families to poverty.
Helen Ukpabio is one of these powerful evangelical preachers. She runs the Liberty Gospel Church. As well as preaching about witches and demon children, she has made a series of films that promote the view that children can be agents of Satan, and can kill and eat human flesh. In the wake of these movies the number of children being branded witches has increased dramatically. Few people will stand up to the evangelists.'
This quote -
"Children are targets of Nigerian witch hunt. Evangelical pastors are helping to create a terrible new campaign of violence against young Nigerians. Children and babies branded as evil are being abused, abandoned and even murdered while the preachers make money out of the fear of their parents and their communities."

Apparently you can watch the video and pics of Child 'witches' in Africa on links from the above site.
