Wonder where they learned this form of Christiantity? There have also been reports of children being accused of witchcraft and then murdered in Uganda and Kenya.

It seems humans save the most evil and brutal acts for people who have, or those being suspected of belonging to a different faith.

OTOH, I'm sure that Ron will be Along shortly to educatd us on the OT, and why this was the only thing that any real God fearing Christian could do.

Sadly I don’t think it’s a religion thing I think it’s a humane thing.:|

I think were animals trying to pretend were not, Imagine if you just acted on every thought that came to your head?

Plenty of old testament verses denounce the witch (particularly exodus 22:18), but I can't think of one that suggests burning them to death. That's usually reserved for sexual misdeed and unclean objects and priests I remember one verse talking about how witches and assorted undesirables will burn in the lake of fire (hell, the second death etc, in Revelations I think), but none suggesting people do it.

Then there's that whole new testament thing, you know: "Let he who is without sin..." and so forth.

Plenty of bad examples in history of course, but this sounds like it come down from local tradition, not bad papal example from the inquisitions and such.

The same school as the Jihadists learnt their form on Islam, only on a different campus.

damn straight - try driving a Hummer, or putting an aluminum can in the regular trash, or use the wrong word for something, or say you like Bush or Obama and the job they do - religious types are nuts


Fanatics are horrible - nothing like self righteousness to open the floodgates of atrocity. religion is one thing, true. But, frankly, any excuse will do if people convince themselves to believe it strongly enough and are able dehumanize the others enough.

Frankly, fanaticism is one thing, but I believe the ability to dehumanize the other is even more important to enable atrocities. The internet and the internet culture might be the biggest trigger of all. You don't even have to be fanatical about something to get there.

I couldn't watch it all either.

How do you know the people doing this evil act were Christians?

How do you know the people being murdered were accused of being witches?



Only from the website, like i said i don't know the whole story and i didn't write the title.

According to this article, it is about money, and relatives are hiring thugs to do it: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2227693/Elderly-Kenyans-burned-alive-witches-refusing-desirable-coastline-land.html




Thanks for the link. Like i said i think its just humans not so much religion. We tend to look for an excuse to make horrific acts ok.

Just because you hate god, doesn't mean he doesn't still love you.

repent now or end up being an asshole forever.
