Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Thousands of children could be abused because relatives believe they are witches or possessed by evil spirits in Britain, it has been warned.

Experts fear another child will be murdered if efforts to prevent abuse linked to faith and belief are not urgently stepped up, following the horrific deaths of young victims including Kristy Bamu and Ayesha Ali.

The first ever Government statistics on the issue showed that witchcraft and possession were linked to almost 1,500 potential abuse cases across the UK in a single year but the figure is thought to be an underestimate.

#1 Yes, it is. We definitely need more exorcists. Maybe another Inquisition. I'm forwarding this story to the Pope.

It was Satan who raped and murdered those children!

Here is the devious part,

"All of these things are done for a purpose, they're not random," Mr Bartholomew said. "The idea is that the child is no longer there, the child's body is possessed by something that's evil."

"The child is no longer there" -- social withdrawal and emotional shutdown, or the opposite, lashing out rather blindly -- is a common pathology in children who suffer abuse. So this is a belief system that creates the symptoms through abuse and then treats them with more abuse.
