Child sacrifice outbreak in Kampala, Uganda
« on: October 12, 2011, 06:48:40 AM »
A crisis which couldn't be dreamed up in a horror movie has taken hold in Uganda. Child sacrifice is being practiced or attempted by individuals who are apparently seeking wealth.  ??? :o :'( :'( :'(

From the article:
Quote
Schoolchildren are closely watched by teachers and parents as they make their way home from school. In playgrounds and on the roadside are posters warning of the danger of abduction by witch doctors for the purpose of child sacrifice.

The ritual, which some believe brings wealth and good health, was almost unheard of in the country until about three years ago, but it has re-emerged, seemingly alongside a boom in the country's economy.

Is. 5:20: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Child sacrifice never died out. It just takes different forms, from one nation to another.

Lord, have mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
