I'm not describing a segment of some fictitious novel based on evil or horrific nightmares. This isn't a story of non-evolved, prehistoric homo-sapiens incapable of communication beyond grunting, or huddling in fear because they don't yet comprehend what "supernatural" forces cause the ground to shake during an earthquake.
This disgusting, insane, sickening and inhumane "nightmare" is a reality in Africa and around the globe, TODAY! Perhaps many of us really are still living in the non-evolved dark ages:
"Witch hunts on the African continent are largely motivated through localized forms of religious extremism by practitioners of traditional African religions who believe that witchcraft is the cause of misfortune, traditional healers (including diviners, herbalists, 'witch‐doctors') who use various forms of divination to point out suspected witches, and charismatic revivalist Christian religious leaders (pastors and prophets) who use their prejudicial notions of witchcraft as a manifest form of satanic evil to encourage their followers to find (accuse) and convert suspected witches." [Source: Touchstone Advocacy]I find it ironic that the same people who claim morality and wholesomeness, wishing to put an end to "evil" and fear, are the ones who are committing the most atrocious acts of evil and creating fear themselves. Within our history, this has been a recurring theme: Monotheist groups "exterminating" those who do not seem to "fit within" preconceived and cult-like notions of what (or whom) is "allowed, acceptable, normal or right". Worst of all, they don't even execute their victims with any shred of decency. Innocent victims meet their demise only after brutal and sadistic suffering has overtaken every thought and fiber of their being.
Personally, I feel much safer surrounded by Witches than some so-called "followers of God's Word".
