It is tempting, trust me. Out of all religions Judaism seems the most appealing and realistic (Bad choice of words
) although I am already well on my way to Spiritual enlightenment and after what I've experienced I really have almost no doubt that I am on the right track


Hey, if Judaism has given you that unforgettable, unmistakable sense of spiritual security then you are on the right path also my friend


Hopefully I'll meet you in some realm somewhere some day

We aren't as far away from it as you'd think.

One of my German ancestors was put to the fire, but her husband paid for the fire to be botched. The rest of her family was burnt alive. There are no people of that last name who live in that area of Germany, so apparently it is very effective as a means of extermination.

It is not just Christians who are promoting this in Africa (and yes, some of them are) but there is a previous cultural taboo about witches in Africa.

And frankly, it is too bad that often they target the wrong people because there are people who fit the "witchdoctor" epitaph in Africa who do and promote things which are horrifying to contemplate. Such as hunting down certain people, like Albinos, to use their body parts in stupid ceremonies or "potions." If was one of the people living in fear of those guys, I'd probably want to hunt them down too.

Of course, they are more likely to just do it to the woman they don't like or the kids they find annoying because actually doing something useful is way too much work apparently.

Oh yes! When the True Messiah is brought to light.
Soon might be to soon for many people. But it will all make sense later!

I really don't blame you, this video is disturbing on so many levels. Also the fact that there is a huge crowd cheering for this. And do they really need to beat them whilst they are being burnt?... Isn't burning enough for these evil people?

They tend to blame and burn children for their hardships on a regular basis in some of these places.

Exodus 22:18 'Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.'

It's the Word of God, right? Right?? Well, maybe it's a mistranslation or a parable... or something.

Out of interest, when your messiah comes in the end times, does everyone get a chance to repent? Sorry, I don't know much at all about Judaism but rather a lot about Christianity considering that my mum has been a Christian for the past 5-6 years

Its wrong enough that any religious material says anything like this. But where does it say burning? Is burning necessary? Or just more entertaining? ... I don't think any god would condone killing. Especially on the grounds of something as silly as most likely hearsay.

Of all the living species in the world.
Man is the only one that kills just to inflict pain.
It saddens me to think that evolution has progressed no further
than this display of power and control!

That is absolutely terrible, I am sad to hear that anything like that has happened to anyone's ancestors.

That's one of the worst things about it; if abominations like this are allowed to be carried out then people will always manipulate a situation so it works their way. I can see most of the people being burnt getting burnt just because someone didn't like them.

Thanks for your input,

I don't think we get a chance to repent. I don't even think its "God" that judges us. I think we look back on our own lives and we judge ourselves. (Hence our lives flash before our eyes). I think we're forced to see the actions and consequences of our entire lives and at the end, that instance of emotion we feel when the show is all over with, that is how we're judged.
Which is why I believe Churches, Temples, Mosques, or Group Religions aren't necessary. You want to get close to God, you have to visit Him in his home, and it isn't some house of tithings. Its in nature. Its a place where you can sit quietly and alone, and listen. Listen to yourself, listen to your soul. God and the Devil are in everything, and in all of us. You just have to listen, and depending on how you feel when the words come, you'll know who was speaking to you.

For me, my church is...

Yes it is sickening... We should be working together as a race to promote happiness and love. Instead we are killing each other over materialistic, dominatrix urges.

Whilst in an Altered state using the spirit molecule I believe I had a taste of the self assessing guilt trip you talk of. It really changed my view and attitude towards life. Even more so than being resuscitated twice in a night, then waking up in a hospital being told that Its a miracle that I'm not brain-dead. (The funny thing is that I have never felt more sane or intellectual) Come to think of it I don't know which experience impacted me more. I've had so many in my lifetime now that its hard to distinguish which made me feel like what. I just float through life trying to promote love and happiness. That is my personal goal and I'm sure the responsibility of every human being. People who do things such as the events in this video are only slowing us down as a race from achieving a utopia.

Thanks a lot


Its always nice to talk to people from different backgrounds with different beliefs. Especially without the general unease that usually arises from it..

This still happens in India all the time. And it is obviously acceptable for 2 reasons...

(a) No-one is stopping it.

(b) India got awarded the Commonwealth games. So even nations with close ties with the country will not boycott them for it.


These humans ( I use the term loosely ) are still living in the dark ages and need to be forcibly dragged out of it.

I agree with you. I don't usually agree with forced regime change but if things like this are allowed to happen to people without hindrance then someone definitely needs to do something... even if they are going to upset someone in the process.

Saudi Arabia does it- or cuts their heads off - and we sell them 60 billion in advanced weapon systems.
They are holding 2 now ready to kill them for it.
