A friend brought this story to my attention today and I was absolutely sickened. In the following video Guardian correspondent Tracy McVeigh reports of the witch hunts targeting children, yes children, in West Africa's Niger Delta.
As the video reports, there are so-called evangelical pastors who are extorting money from Nigerian parents by promising to cure their children from witchcraft. These religious charlatans are spreading ignorance, encouraging abuse and in many cases the deaths of innocent children.
This brand of Christianity certainly has nothing to do with Christ.
