I don't know if atheistnexus.org has already discussed this but this is horrible! Children are either tortured, buried alive or stabbed to death after being accused of witchcraft. It's like Salem.
via the link:
"Religious leaders capitalize on the ignorance of some parents in the villages just to make some money off them," said Lucky Inyang, project coordinator for 'Stepping Stones Nigeria'."They can say your child is a witch and if you bring the child to the church we can deliver the child but eventually they don't deliver the children... The parents go back to the pastor and say, 'why is it you have not been able to deliver the child' and the pastor says 'Oh - this one has gone past deliverance - they've eaten too much flesh so you have to throw the child out. And most pastors charge a fee for deliverance -- anywhere from $300 to $2,000."
This ideally could be good for atheist PR if we were more funded. We could offer assistance to those who've suffered under religion like these kids. I also don't see any Christian organizations stepping up and stopping this madness.
