And then there's this pastor in Tottenahm. He's very spiritual too.
A London-based pastor has been arrested on suspicion of inciting child cruelty following an investigation into allegations of witchcraft at an evangelical Congolese church in Tottenham. Dr Dieudonne Tukala, 46, from the Church of Christ Mission, is being questioned over claims that he diagnosed several children as "witches", advising their parents to beat the devil out of them or send them back to the Democratic Republic of Congo so that he could pray for them to be killed...Dr Tukala was accused of telling one couple that their nine-year-old son was possessed. The boy's father was jailed for five years at Snaresbrook Crown Court in November 2003 after branding his son with a steam iron and forcing chilli powder into his mouth "to drive the devil out".
Branding his child with an iron. To drive the devil out. People trample other people to death in their eagerness to throw stones at a stone, in the belief that it has something to do with the devil, and other people burn children with irons and beat them, in the belief that they will drive the devil out.
There are some things so stupid or so cruel that only religion can persuade people to do them.
