Christianity Kills Children


Recommended Posts

Cedric Rodrick was 8 years old when the village turned against him. After his father was killed in an accident, an uncle denounced him and his brother as “witches”.


A bogus preacher, offering to exorcise the evil spirits, concurred. A five-year nightmare had begun.




She turned out to be worse and handed them over to the pastor for exorcism.


“The pastor said we were responsible for my father’s death and we had to be cleansed. He made us sleep outside and refused us food for days at a time. Then, he and my aunt would hit us. They said they had to make the evil spirits run away, but they hurt. In the end I ran away. I will never go back,” he recounted


There are now thousands of these “churches”, with unqualified pastors offering deliverance and other panaceas to a life of crushing poverty. The preachers charge a price for cleansing the children of evil sprits that they say are the cause of the parents’ poverty. Illiterate parents are easy targets.


What's this bullshit about "bogus" and "unqualified" pastors. Having a certificate in woo doesn't make the woo more real.


Here is an example of why religion in general, and christianity in particular can be a very dangerous and bad thing.

I remember when my father died at a very early age. He was a very abusive drunk, and one night I prayed that he would die. And it was two weeks later that he got in a severe car crash. He died three years later...Needless to say I did, inevitably, blame myself for it happening...


And that was mainly because of my religion...I used to believe in prayer, and after months of therapy I've just stopped blaming myself for that..


I do think religion is very damaging to children. You already have an overactive imagination as a child, and you shouldn't have adults convincing you that you are possessed by demons and etc. Those children will have to go through years of counseling just to reverse the damage that the church does.


It is really sick.

The S.A.F.F. only began collecting, collating and analysing Sexual Abuse linked with ecclesiastics during 1989 hence the sample of cases grew as our scope and ability to source them increased. The early years are therefore sparse but this reflects the lack of attention so far applied to them. Since 1978 we have logged over ONE HUNDRED convictions of Christian Ritualised Abuse. Compare these DEFINITE cases with the six uncorroborated cases promoters of Satanic Ritualised Abuse have unearthed over the same period and the true nature of both is immediately apparent. The average yearly level of abuse going by our 1989/90 & 91 figures can be considered representational at two dozen cases per year, a shocking figure. We did not collate cases prior to this.


The tragedy of the suffering of innocent children in this situation is too miserable to contemplate.
