Witch Doctors in Uganda Sacrificing Children in Bid to End Drought, Report Says

(Fox News) Witch doctors are sacrificing children in Uganda, looking to turn the tide with miracles in the drought-stricken country, a new report says.

Officials in Uganda say the number of human sacrifices are on the rise, as the East African country battles its worst drought in more than half a century. More than 11 million people are facing food insecurity and more than 1.6 million are on the brink of famine.

“There is no food due to the ongoing drought, and some believe that this has been brought by ancestral spirits,” Joel Mugoya, a traditional, told the Religion News Service, according to USA Today. “So there is a high desire for people to conduct sacrifices so that they come out of this problem.”

      Absolutely agree, Lady in Christ. It is just so distressing to think of the torture these little children are suffering at the hands of these demonic witch doctors. Prayers for their safety and protection.

    There’s an excellent book by Yale professor Sarah Ruden titled Paul Among the People. She talks about what “witchcraft” and “sorcery” really meant in biblical times, and they were abominable practices such as what is described in this article. Every Halloween there’s a lot of debate among Christians whether Christian parents should allow their kids to celebrate Halloween in any way, due to what the Bible says about witchcraft. The witchcraft in Bible times was seriously violent and harmful, not dressing up as a witch or ghost or vampire for one night of the year. I respect Christians who frown on Halloween, but I don’t think it really does any harm. That’s just my opinion.
