Don't write us off so fast.
We are not a continent of mad people and you should come visit Uganda sometime.
We've got lots of western tourists and settlers here, even Chinese.
Child sacrifice is bad but not as bad as it looks.
It's much harder to understand given that a significant number of people here don't believe in a God and a devil, a heaven and a hell but to me it
just explains it all.
The media attention maybe due to one prominent wealthy man who was dragged to court accused of child sacrifice. But proving witchcraft and other
occult practices is a hard thing to do in court and so the case has dragged on for years.
I've heard unconfirmed stories of people who actually got their wealth through this but as always there is a price that is never fully paid. One of
them tells of how a man sacrificed his son for wealth. He got it but it's said that the sons spirit wont let him sleep. It wakes him up telling him
keep on working for the money that he was sacrificed for.
Personally I think what they believe is real.
Of course there are the fake ones who make money off the gullible folk but you can't brush away the whole thing as foolishness. We formally refer to
them as traditional doctors and herbalists. Though the herbalists are not necessarily into the occult. These are the kind who don't engage in ritual
sacrifice but other forms of traditional healing, and spirituality to give people what they want. So they have a license to to practice. They appear
on TV news occasionally. Imagine some one seated on burning embers and not being affected by it. Even the clothes remain intact.
Then some odd job I was doing while in university,
I heard of a charm a supervisor had hung in the workshop to keep the manager in check.
When the cleaner threw it away, the manager was basically shouting at her all day!
I'm what you call an evangelical Christian.
But there was a story on TV one time. Some misguided Christians thought they'd take on these guys in some kind of showdown like Prophet Elijah or
something. Poor guys lost the contest, nearly got beaten up and were thrown out of the locality.
It's funny how the camera crew is always there in time to catch most of the action.
Like they call them in advance or something. But our TV stations always ask the public to inform them of news events. Just sensational journalism to
But as it says in the good book, we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world.
They are the ones in charge.
All this about child sacrifice, violence, immorality, aliens, Illuminati, gun control, unconstitutional, greed, corruption, occupy sesame street :-)
it's shocking but not surprising.
has anyone ever wondered what happens to all those missing children in America?
Could it be that some of them end up victims of child sacrifice too?
Then remember Kony? He and his predecessor were also into the occult

I thought I'd just clarify this line here without editing it out completely
"Child sacrifice is bad but not as bad as it looks."
What I meant to say was, the problem is not as bad as it looks. It is not a widespread problem that has reached epidemic proportions. In most parts f
the country, children loiter around outside up to 9pm as there is no threat to their safety.
