So, you know this to be factual? That ritual 'killings' of young children is going on, as described? wth!
Don't get me started .
All I can tell you is no continental African in their right mind or have even a tiny bit of education gets involved with traditional African religion. There is no history of anything good ever coming from it. You can trace slavery and every horror story coming from Africa to it. It is the cornerstone for fostering tribalism and tribal conflict. Here is a tip, notice how any time African's are involved with civil conflict traditional African religion plays a central part.
African are 99.999 percent Christian or Muslim. The people who engage in such things do not even come to any percentage. The bad news is we all know about our traditional religion and when our people's hearts are overtaken by tribal hatred they fall back to it and the rest is bad news.
I am afraid you are quite mistaken. No Traditionalist in his/her right mind would harm a child thinking that somehow this will get a blessing. Also for you to say that no educated African is involved in Traditional African religions is a lie. The Awise Ogunwande Abimbola is just one of the hundreds I know of personally. I also include myself.
Third as you probably know many so-called xtians and mohammedans come to Ifa priest for help, for you to suggest otherwise in your post is a lie. I only speak for Nigeria, I cannot speak for the entire continent as you have done here. The percentages you site are so much dung.
I will defend the terrible of African Traditional Religion when you defend the abominations of catholic priests buggering young boys and your pentacostal pastor pimps.
