THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT GUYS! LISTEN UP!
As a paranormal blogger, I’ve heard of some pretty insane cases. But this has got to be ridiculous.
In Kinshasa (a country in the Congo) there are some pretty sick rumors.
- Children who strangle parents in their sleep or eat the hearts of their siblings.
- Children flying through the skies at night, stealing money or deliberately causing illnesses like HIV and polio.
The Congo people call these children “sorcerers” and believe they cause bad luck and do evil things.
What’s the worst part, is that they think that these children should be rejected by their family or shunned by society.
People who have experienced a sudden hardship in their family, such a death or illness, literally will go handpicking a child to blame their problems on.
Can you even believe that? The poor child is accused of something he/she had no logical connection to.
Some of these children are killed, but far more are abandoned.
Or they are dragged to churches, where they may well find further misery.
According to Human Rights Watch, alleged child sorcerers taken to churches may be denied food and water, whipped until they confess, or sexually abused.
In a 2013 report about Congo, the U.S. State Department described “exorcisms of children accused of witchcraft involving isolation, beating and whipping, starvation, and forced ingestion of purgatives.”
Even worse? This problem isn’t just in Congo, it’s slowly on the rise throughout sub-saharan Africa.
I just really wanted to bring attention to this injustice.
