Margaret Downey sends us to this link to learn of a disaster brought about by superstition and stupidity – in other words, religion. How many generations will it take for us to outgrow this infection? From the article:

The children are exposed to all forms of dehumanization. One had a nail driven into her skull. Another was given poison to drink. Many were set on fire.

Other parents take their children to churches where a Pastor declares the child a witch or wizard, who is in need of deliverance.
