TBH, there doesn't seem much hope for the animals in the developing world when this kind of shit is still going on :(

It's very sad....Africa has so many problems, killing children because of superstitions and witchcraft is an awful thing that needs international intervention...

I saw a documentary about preachers in africa, denouncing children being possessed by the devil and demanding money from
the child's family to get rid of the demons, in the mean time the villagers try there upmost to kill the child :(

Most atheists see themselves as realists - their atheism is a part of their willingness to square up to the world as it is and face it without recourse to superstition or comforting fictions about a life to come or a benevolent power looking after us.
