    Why London is going to Hell

    From Butterflies and Wheels:

    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.

    Ignorance is bliss right? That's unless you're getting marked with a branding iron and being fed with chili peppers...

    Religion might be the salvation for most, yet for others it's their doom. Sure ignorant people are saved from having to deal with the uncertainty of the afterlife and other brainy thoughts, and of course they don't care if they're being manipulated by the ones who told them the tale. Witches... have we gone back to the 15th century? I think I might go hunt a dragon... you know they can't hide for that long in this flat earth of ours...
