Children in Uganda are being ritually sacrificed by wealthy businessmen who are hoping the sacrifice will bring success and money to them in return. This article details some of the cases and even goes so far as to track down one of the prime witch doctors guilty of these murders. Unfortunately, the government is a combination of understaffed and unwilling to go after these vicious murderers, leaving families absolutely terrified of allowing children to go about their normal lives. May the Holy Spirit anoint these people with both understanding and compassion... that they turn from this life of ignorance and greed.
On an entirely different front, we're abusing children here in the States through this sordid attack on sexuality. While I have no doubt this problem is legitimate for some families, it is symptomatic of an on-going problem that has permeated society for the last 100 years! The idea that they'd dole out hormonal treatments to children who very well could grow out of this is mind-boggling to me. Of course the media hops all over it and presents it in such a "compassionate" way as to solicit music from the heartstrings of readers, once more numbing the populace quietly with these imperceptible Lidocaine injections.
Then, over in San Fran we've got children subjected to THIS stupidity. Now granted, San Fran is probably the last place I'd wanna raise a child considering all the perverse things going on there, but still... this is a special level of ridiculous.
Dear God... please protect our children. We, ourselves, cannot. In fact, we are the ones destroying them. Open our hearts to them. Instill in us the understanding of how special they are... how in need of love and protection they are. Pour out Your Grace over the world... we need such healing. We need such strong, fast healing...
