“A woman has been tortured and burned alive in Papua New Guinea after being accused of using sorcery to kill a young boy. The woman, a mother aged 20 named as Kepari Leniata, was stripped, tied up and doused in petrol by the boy’s relatives in Mount Hagen in the Western Highlands, said the National newspaper.”
The US embassy in the capital, Port Moresby, condemned the killing as a “brutal murder” and stated, “There is no possible justification for this sort of violence”.
You shall not permit a sorceress to live. [Exodus 22:18]
It is impossible to calculate accurately the total number of convicted witches who were burned at the stake or hanged in Europe between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries, but few students begin guessing below the range of fifty to one hundred thousand, and some would double or triple that figure. The reason for the persistence of the witchcraft idea and the burning of witches was that Christian authorities couldn’t let it die, without admitting that God’s word was wrong.
So nobody believes this baloney today… right? Wrong!
I copied this from the catalogue of Liberty University. It was on their “About” page under “What no other University can claim.”
…”An uncompromising doctrinal statement, based upon an inerrant Bible, a Christian worldview beginning with belief in biblical Creationism, an eschatological belief in the pre-millennial, pre-tribulational coming of Christ for all of His Church, dedication to world evangelization, an absolute repudiation of “political correctness,” a strong commitment to political conservatism, total rejection of socialism, and firm support for America’s economic system of free enterprise.”…
Now… was that a mouth full of Crazy-Ass Shit, or what?
Here is the really hilarious part. This year Liberty University has received MORE money in Government Guaranteed Student Loans ($450,000,000) than any other “University” in the State of Virginia. More than The University of Virginia and more than Virginia Tech, both Top 50 schools world wide. Liberty University, unlike UVA & Tech, does not admit gay students or permit a “Democrat” Club on campus. They are listed as a “Non-Competitive” school which is their way of saying that if your check can clear the bank…. You are in! As a result they are making so much money they can’t spend it fast enough. All their “professors” are untenured, so, the slightest deviation from “The Bible” in their teaching puts the Kaybosh on their illustrious career at Liberty.
Bill Maher noted that Liberty teaches “creation science,” and the idea that earth was created 5,000 years ago. “This is a school you flunk out of when you get the answers right,”… Much as conservatives believe gay marriage cheapens their own vows, “I think a diploma from Liberty cheapens my diploma from a real school,” he continued.
That is a picture of the fat bastard that got Liberty off the Ground. When decent white folks were forced by the Federal Government to send their children to the same schools with “Negroes” Jerry Falwell got into the Education business by opening up White Private Christian Academies. He and his Clan have been raking in tax free money hand over fist ever since teaching bigotry to the sons & daughters of the bigoted. All this went down in Lynchburg, Virginia. It’s a VERY Christian town. As a matter of fact it is such a Christian town that when the courts decided that “Negroes” should be permitted to swim in the community swimming pools along with decent white folks….. they filled the pools in with dirt.
Now, you are probably asking yourself…. Mrs. N… what the hell does all this have to do with some poor woman getting burned as a witch, in Papua New Guinea? Well, I’ll tell you….
People are people where ever you go in this world. They all are subject to culture and there is no culture (to the best of my knowledge) that doesn’t have supernatural beliefs…. “Paranormal beliefs”… including ours. So don’t go getting ideas in your head that those people in Papua New Guinea are that different, or, primitive compared to us. There are NOT!
Any country that can support a Liberty University and have a guy who wears magic underpants get as close to being President as Mitt Romney did… Well, lets just say that we have far more reason to be embarrassed than we do to feel proud…..
