On god.tv (really, it is called that), I saw an odd bit from Africa
where they were burning piles of evil items, witchcraft things, and who
know what all else. And all were singing and dancing. All dressed in
black slacks, white pressed shirts and coordinated ties. Not sure if it
was Catholic, but it was Christian. It was presented straight faced as
what one must do in places like Africa. I cannot see this going down
well in USA/EU. I, for one, will not give up my witchcraft items. Do
western churches (non-fundamental) even acknowledge witchcraft?
