The Dark Hater Show: The Devil Caused The Earthquake in Haiti

The evangelist, Pat Robertson should be ashamed of himself by assuming that the earthquake that devastated Haiti was because the people made a pact with the devil. This is one of the most ignorant comments I've ever heard when it comes to natural disasters. Any intelligent person knows that natural disasters are not caused by anything supernatural.

Dispatchers: Return to Africa's Witch Children

This documentary shows one of many reasons why I'm an atheist--that being that there are too many people in the world committing atrocities in the name of religion.

Here in this documentary, we see Christian pastors in Akwa Ibom state of Nigeria telling impoverished families that their children are witches and wizards, and making fortunes to exploit them! Because of this, children are being abused, abandoned, killed, tortured, or subjected to traumatizing rituals to rid them of witchcraft.

One of the main Nigerian evangelists accusing children of witchcraft is Mrs. Helen Ukpabio, of the Church of Liberty. You'll see in the documentary that she refuses to own up to the responsibility of making videos and preaching that children become a part of witch covenants and terrorize neighborhoods. She also plays the race card when the makers of the documentary tell her that people are harming children because of her teachings.

The scary thing is that this type of behavior is actually encouraged in the Bible! Here's a few examples:

Exodus 22: 18: "You shall not permit a sorceress to live."
This verse says that anyone accused of being a witch is to be killed.

Deuteronomy 18: 10 - 12: "There shall not be found among you any one who burns his son or daughter as an offering, any one who practices divination, a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer, or a charmer, or a medium, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord; and because these abominable practices the Lord your God is driving them out before you."
This verse says that wizards and the like should be driven out, because the Judeo-Christian god doesn't like them.

2 Kings 23: 24: "Moreover Josi'ah put away the mediums and the wizards and the teraphim and the idols and all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that he might establish the words of the law which were written in the book that Hillki'ah the priest found in the house of the lord."
This one talks about imprisoning wizards and the like.

Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, I bring to you Dispatchers: Return to Africa's Witch Children:
Part One:

Part Two:

Part Three:

Part Four:

Part Five:

You can help these children out by donating to Stepping Stones Nigeria, a legitimate charity drive dedicated to helping to feed, educate, and provide health care and love for these children. Because of them, PACT (Prevent Abandonment of Children Today) and CRARN (the Child Rights and Rehabilitation Network), Akwa Ibom's governor, Godswill Akpabio has helped pass legislation in the state to make exploitation and accusations of witchcraft punishable by law with 10 years of imprisonment.

Why Christianity Has No Morality

This caller, David, is a classic example of the mindless sheep variety of humanity. What's even more disturbing is that many Christian fundamentalists agree with David's lack of logic.
