The ancenstors (or something) are calling
« on: September 24, 2013, 06:52:21 AM »
BBC has a very interesting program where a journalist, a daughter of an anglican priest, goes back to her native South Africa to investigate and possibly take up the call to be a witch doctor or sangoma. This is audio only and in one point she goes into a trance and you get to hear, through translation, the spirit threatening beatings!!

I told the witch doctor I was in love with you (dum dum dum dum)
I told the witch doctor I was in love with you (dum dum dum dum)
And then the witch doctor he told me what to do.

He told me: 'Uh ih uh ah ah, ting tang wallawallabingbang,
Uh ih uh ah ah, ting tang wallawallabingbang!'

I think I will skip listening to the clip. 

Hearing demons speak is not on today's to-do list.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Guys! They're not intercoursing. It's just an unfortunate angle.

Being a witch doctor and an Anglican minister isn't mutually exclusive.
