Here on WordPress, I just now came across a blog with some fascinating, very informative, and disturbing posts about today’s African witchhunts:
- Nigerian Christians join in witchhunts – 18 December 2007
- African neopentecostals battle witchcraft in the West – 24 December 2007
- Witchcraft, African and European – 6 April 2008
They pretty much confirm what I already knew, but provide more historical details. The author is apparently South African and a believer in Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
P.S.: I just now came across an old post on Marie Ravensoul’s blog, Christian Rapper Calls for the Killing of Witches and the Slaying of Demons. It seems that the song is paralleling real-life trends, alas.
