Africa is home to some of the most savage types of paganism, and in a recent report coming out of Mozambique, ‘witch doctors’ are kidnapping and dismembering bald men, harvesting the parts and selling or using them for use in heathen rituals:
Bald people have become the latest targets of witchdoctors in Mozambique, police chiefs say.
Police say the body parts and heads of bald men are being traded across the borders to Malawi and Tanzania where they are of value in witchcraft.
The police warning came after the brutal killing of two bald men, one of whom had his head cut off, and both had their internal organs cut out and stolen.
National police spokesman Inacia Dina told a news conference in the capital Maputo: ‘The murders of two bald people has led to two arrests of suspects.
‘Their motivations come from superstition and culture as the local community thinks bald men are rich and that their parts can be used to enrich others.’
The killings took place in Milange in the centre of southern Mozambique and the two victims were aged over 40 with one decapitated and both mutilated.
A security services spokesman Miguel Caetano said that according to the statements of those arrested, the organs were to be used for witchcraft.
He said the two arrested men, both aged about 20, said the organs were to be used by healers in rituals to promote the fortunes of the witchdoctors’ clients.
They told officers the body parts were sent across to Tanzania and Malawi.
The spokesman said that the attacks on bald men for their organs is a new outbreak in the trade in organ parts in which albinos are usually targeted. (source)
Savagery comes in many forms, and something that we have pointed out is the connection between paganism and barbarity. Where Paganism decreases so does barbarity, and where paganism returns, so does barbarity. There is a direct correlation between the two.
Africa is a great but almost too simplistic look at the barbarity of paganism because of the strong hold that paganism has there. It is no accident why the continent is called the “Dark Continent,” because it has a lot deeper meaning than just skin color. In the words of Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the famous Vatican exorcist who recently passed away, he said that the worst types of demonic activity has had to combat have come from Africa or Brazil, and Brazil has the highest number of African people living in it of any nations outside of the African continent. However, thankfully because of the work of Christian missionaries, the darkness that once defined Africa is gradually being dispelled by the light of the Gospel, although there is certainly a considerable amount of work that has yet to be done.
But with all fairness to the Africans, pagan savagery is not unique just to them. It can happen to anybody in any culture and it will re-shape itself to that particular culture’s idioms but with the same results. Let’s take a look at a few world cultures as a sampling about this:
If you have not yet read our expose yet, you really need to.
Iceland and the Nordic nations of Europe are an excellent example. I say this specifically because while all of Europe was pagan at one point and engaged in the savage marks of paganism- human sacrifice, cannibalism, and fertility worship- northern Europe has seen a resurgence of this through the recent National Socialist movements, which while proclaiming that Europeans need to “connect with their roots” is a poor cover for the reality of their hatred of Christ and their desire to replace the sacrifice on the cross with the human sacrifices they used to practice in centuries past before the Catholic Church eliminated this barbarity.
Hell Across the Border, Ted’s documentary about the Mexican Drug Cartels
Mexico and the central American people are also another major example. We at Shoebat.com have been adamant that the decline of the Catholic Church caused by Freemasons, atheists, and aided by American Protestant missionaries has caused a resurgence of paganism leading to a return of the rituals of old that the Catholic missionaries wiped out. It is becoming such a problem that we did a documentary about this called “Hell Across the Border.”

Japan is another favorite place of Americans, but while it has a veneer of order and justice, paganism has a deep history in that nation. The Japanese national religion, Shintoism, is no different than the Odinistic paganism of northern Europe except it is just a different place and people. The Japanese experiments on the Chinese and Koreans during World War II, who they viewed as subhumans are directly connected to their religious views and the crimes they still have not apologised for as a people.

Paganism in India is infamous and widespread. We have written copiously about this, including about the infamous Aghoris, who consume corpses and worship death in one of the most savage and bestial practices found on earth.
Also, one must remember the paganism found in Islam. Because Islam is the culmination of all Christian heresy, it naturally inclines toward and embraces pagan ideas and practices but justifies it through its own unique interpretation of Biblical and Hebraic texts. Mohammed himself was accused of paganism during his lifetime by fellow Arabs (such as with the poetic verse the first 1/4 of the Koran is written in, which closely reflects the Grecian pagan oracles that were common in the backwards parts of Arabia and the Middle East as a leftover from Greece’s pre-Christian days).
There is also American paganism. While many Americans call them Christians, what is Christian about taking off most of your clothes and covering yourself in body paint while drinking, shouting, and even fighting over a sports game? It may not involved human sacrifice, but it has an eerie semblance to the days of antiquity and given a little time, some gradual influences, and just the right cultural conditions, it is not hard to see how Americans could return to a state of barbarity.
Paganism comes in many forms, and it is important to point in out where it appears in any culture. Just because it has not reached the form it has in certain places in comparison to others does not make it any less deadly. It’s like the stages of cancer- it does matter what stage you are at because there is no “healthy” or good stage ever. Cancer is cancer and no matter how big or small it has to be eliminated. Certainly the measures that one needs to take have to be proportionate to the stage, but big or small, its all has to be dealt with because, as with all sin, it leads to death.
