Police have warned of a rise in cases involving people being tortured due to being branded as witches.

Metro said:

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.

This angers me so much. I can't even begin to express how I feel about this on here, otherwise I'd be banned for sure.

Fun fact. Over 9 million people have been killed in history by the christian church alone on the charge of witchcraft. Sad that it still continues

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 ;)

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.

Example:

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?

**EDIT**

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...

I'll end my rant here.

So humans cannot ever be twisted  and bad   without the aid of some demons?  

That must mean  human beings can never be fully capable of doing wrong, therefore should never take full responsibility  for their own actions?

Why stop there... lets also add...

I guess if people do good turns,  its not really them, they must be possessed by  goodie gum drop angels?

Heck we all must be possessed by some strange entity, for every mood swing we take...    So there must be  PMS Spirits?  HRT demons? ..Funny mood angels?   Cheesed off demons?

Can't imagine what we would bl like  IF  no angel, demon  or any spirit possessed  us  for whatever mood may come...  Drones anyone?

This line of thinking is getting too darn strange, that even Scientologists   would call  WEIRD !!

LOL!


I love how we are also supposed to have our own free will "deemed by God".

Wouldn't that make possession impossible if "God" created "laws" to have people possessed?

Or is it the belief that it is the evil already within us that lets us "fall to the dark side of the force" or vise-versa?

Ahh, loop-holes...

The people who wrote the Bible and other religious texts must have been great lawyers!! LMAO

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

That's what I mean, I don't care what the bible thinks...

The bible thinks our planet and all the universe was created in 6 days...

We know now it was everything was not created a couple thousand years ago, so why would we think that witchcraft would be "evil"?
