Police have warned of a rise in cases involving people being tortured due to being branded as witches.
The warning came after a London couple were convicted yesterday of torturing a a 15-year-old boy to death because they were convinced he was possessed by evil spirits. Murderer Eric Bikubi – who with his partner, Magelai Bamu, subjected her younger brother, Kristy, to four days of torment before drowning him – was obsessed with kindoki.
The demons probably possessed the ones doing all witch hunting. It would at least explain their irrational behavior. And if I was evil spirit and posses someone, I would probably convince them that there are witches all around and must be destroyed or he/she would be killed by those witches. neat trick ;)
Reality is a concept of man - Therefore reality is what man makes of it.

Well me being the neutral party here taking what I know into account:
This is mis-reviewed and put out by the media to the public to demoralize "Excorsism". If an "Excorsism" works you never hear about it; whenever something goes wrong and the person dies from the "currently unkown science" that is spirituality, it's all over the media.
On specific accounts, that is mis-understood religious beliefs, if the religious belief for that region is for example "forcing acid down their mouth to expell the demons" it is quite frankly not even close to what the Catholic Church "decided" is the way to purge an entity from a persons body.
Furthermor, further misunderstanding of the spiritual realm and the nature of all the beings that inhabit all realities will always lead to mis-interpretation of how to deal with something already not understood.
We used to think that many "medical practices" were alright, and that worked. Now we have the knowledge and understanding that what we thought helped before completely damaged other things.
Or the big classic one, the world was flat.
And the common; are we alone in the universe?
So by the way. Who says witchcraft is evil if you are not hurting other people? You could kill an animal for a sacrifice and it should be fine, we do it all day everyday, we have farms that kill thousands to millions of animals a day...
Was there anything bad witches were known for? Other than if you straight PI**ED them off...
All the witches that are told about are healers, they fix things, they help people and their mental illnesses, they were often even "wise men" of the villages who people went to for advice...
Seriously, but people put a stigmatism on the whole spirituality subject because of their DNA and social qualms... we are all children of people who burned people alive, or watched people burn alive, those experiences effect us over generations of witches and scientists and free thinkers being burned alive...
In short some people retaliate against spirituality because they do not know, and they are afraid. So naturally you are afraid of the people who do know...
If we listened to people that claim demons are cause for evil I think our society would be even more screwed up. Thank goodness for open minded people, people who question and scientist at least they look at intelligent reasons as to why people behaviour the way they do. The more we learn and open our eyes the better chance for change. If we listen to the bible people nothing would get questioned because God will save them or maybe karma will come around
