    Do You Find It Odd That It’s Christians Who Have the Powers to Recognize Witch Children?

    Believe It Or Not, Children Accused Of  Witchcraft Are Usually Incarcerated In Churches Where They Are Beaten, Starved And Tortured In Order To Extract A Confession.

    I find this question to be an odd one myself. You asked it as if seeking an answer, then you answer it yourself with a statement. If you are so knowledgable about this subject, why not write a hub about it.

    To my knowledge, there are no children being held captive in the Church for anything at all, let alone starved and beaten.

    There are no children being held captive in my church either! I'd appreciate knowing what or whom you are referring to. It's statements such as this that get around and give real Christians a bad nmae. Please tell me...where is this taking place?

    I think you need to better explain your definition of a "Christian". I consider myself a "true" Christian which in my definition does in no way make me perfect but solidifies my belief in God and the fact that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. I try to lead the most well behaved life I can, but am still an admitted sinner in many ways and I do try to do better each day. A Christian also believes in biblical truths and practices of which none include persecution or turture of another human being or animal for ANY reason. I believe that your information is not coming from a true Christian source. Please elaborate.

    Born Again 05, These allegations are all over the world. For example, CNN is a credible source of information which is trusted by many people in the Western world and if you look at this link: http://edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/afric … itchcraft/ , you will see Christians (read pretending Christians) are involved in children witch business.

    to call the people who do such things "christians" is the same as referring to the terrorists who bombed the twin towers as "muslims". They were terrorists. The majority of muslims don't condone their actions. In every belief system there are those who twist and contort what is there in order to harm others. they are simply hateful people who are using a belief system to justify what is wrong with them. Belief systems have a poignant way of bringing out in people what is already there and magnifying it. it's a study in human psychology. Not a study of the truth, validity, or goodness of a given belief system.

    You're first mistake is believing anything CNN has to say. Your second mistake is believing REAL Christians would do this to children - ANY children.

    It's silly, but hey - your question got a lot more answers than any of mine so... I guess that shows what I know!

    Best Always
