Britain's Witch Children - African 'churches' Abusing Children In The Uk by debosky(m): 9:24pm On Jul 26, 2010
Dispatches goes undercover in some African churches in the UK, where evangelical pastors perpetuate a strong belief in witchcraft. They preach that some people are possessed by evil spirits, and that these spirits bring bad luck into the lives of others.

The only way to rid the possessed from the witchcraft spell and lift their curse is to 'deliver' them: a kind of exorcism that can be very traumatic. Some pastors charge significant sums of money to perform these deliverances.

Often it is children who are denounced as witches by these pastors, and this labelling can lead to the physical and emotional abuse of those children at the hands of their families. In extreme cases it has led to the deaths of some children.

In parts of Africa, branding a child a witch is now outlawed, but in Britain this practise is perfectly legal, despite the fact it can have horrific consequences.

Dispatches reveals just what goes on behind closed doors in these African churches, exposing the pastors who exploit the religious beliefs of the most vulnerable.

This program is unbelievable - 'pastors' allegedly delivering children from 'witchcraft'. undecided

Surprised!

And this does not only happen in african churches!

It happens in the USA, Western Europe and every where around the globe.
White people are doing it, Black people are doing it.
And even yellow and red people.

The only witch is in your own wrong doing!

And no ju-ju can do to you, what you do not choose to do first.
It is in your own heart to do evil.

And pastor or no pastor, it is the blood of the lamb, which makes you truly free.

I just watched it on channel 4 and it is very sad yo watch how families subjected children in a deplorable selfish act.

The so call pastors were using manipulations in order to get into the pockets and psychology sync of the adults. Very skewed understanding of christianity indeed! May God help us.

What surprises me is the fact that most of these Africans will claim to be educated and intelligent but at the same time they will allow a most times uneducated illegal immigrant posing as a pastor to abuse and sometimes injure their children.

This is the reason why I tend to stay away from African churches and I can be quite wary of those that attend them.

It is sad how some Black people can be so gullible. Remember the time when a pastor, Jim Jones in Guyana convinced hundreds of people most of whom were black to drink and give their children cyanide resulting in their deaths at one sermon?  Tragic!

I happen to know one of the dodgy "pastors" in the documentary before he left to go and start his own "church" but gullible folks who are not interested in the truth would only find themselves deceived and duped by these charlatans. Only if our journalists can emulate the investigative skills employed in acquiring facts to nail criminals instead of sensationaling every story they print or rather understand the subject they are dealing with which is beyond their scope of operation it would have had a good ending. Since Channel 4 or their editors don't believe in the supernatural or the existence of God the only option they have is to deny that the problem exists and therefore try to explain it away or blame it on the object of their derision. The best they can do is to provide the evidence needed to nail down these criminals instead of witchhunting Africa and Christianity as they are always prone to.

And we wonder why we are called the 'DArk Continent'? Our contemporaries are sending astronauts to the moon and we are busy chasing children who 'fly in the night' angry Are those people all right at all?

Its bad enough for them to label themselves 'churches' but now they have carried their dirty primitive practices from their own African countries and carried such tripe to someone else's country, a developed country at that??!! What utter foolishness.

"My people die for lack of knowledge'- that describes such fools to a T!

God please help Africa from this maniac madness of he is witch she is a witch I can not understand why all these unbeleiving things are so common in churches this is so sad calling an innocent child a witch for God sake and started subjecting the innocent child to untold and miserable trauma why all this for goodness sake and the most annoying thing is when someone try to correct them they will be quoting a verse in the bible and twisted it to suit their dirty act it is so sad.

That is why I don't like attending African churches in Britain. It is not even the child witchcraft issue alone that makes me stay away from these churches. The painful thing is that many of those who attend these churches have not found their bearing in the UK. They have not found their consciousness and have subjected themselves to exploitation in the hands of some of the church leaders who are dodgy. Besides, I don't like the way everything African is portrayed negatively in Britain. There are white people doing obnoxious things too. Channel 4 should point the cameras on the wrongdoings of the European community too. Cheers.

Many people get tremendous support from churches when they get here in the UK. There are those who are unlucky to fall into the hands of these unscrupulous 'non-pastors' who capitalise on their fear and ignorance. Why would anyone want to have anything to do with a pastor who wants you to make a donation before he prays? I feel sorry for all the victims and pray they find God and his healing.

Africans carry rubbish around with them all the way to the west.
(rubbish, poverty, dirt ,rodents, you name it they are carrying it)
If they are not doing well ,they look for a vulnerable person to blame.

If thomas edison believed in witches, would he have done 1000 experiments to finally get the electric bulb to light?

Donation - The donation for the pastor is not the problem. He got to eat, too.
And should have a decent standart of living. The problem is everyboby can call himself pastor, prophets ect,  and set up a church, without any training and anyone for supervision. The is not right. Even Jesus had to report to god!
Re: Britain's Witch Children - African 'churches' Abusing Children In The Uk by ada24: 9:42am On Jul 28, 2010
can someone explain to me how the undercover journalist can make up a story and then the pastor diagnoses demon possession and nobody questions him.

the one that made me sick was Kays story. sex for prayers?

i don't have the energy for a long response except why do people who claim to have intelligence be so gullible - yes everybody deserves a good life but how can a pastor be asking for money in exchange for prayers. plus why is deya still in the uk, honestly the home office is not doing a good job

abuse of any kind particularly abuse of defenceless innocent kids is evil and rightly condemned.

talking about donations, modupe debbie ariyo is not doing badly herself by this account filled with the charities commission

http://www.charity-commission.gov.uk/ScannedAccounts/Ends27%5C0001093027_ac_20090331_e_c.pdf

making every african an abuser has become her meal ticket. it is sad. in a civilized place like england you cannot be a  judge and jury but she is going about making all churches criminals that need  reformed by a person not ashamed to say her inspiration is from the grail message.

the self styled pastors deserve to go serve some time in afghanistan, pakistan or iraq becos they are evil wicked rogues but that does not justify entrapment. which judge will try these cases and pass sentence on these ugly with the method used? maybe in a banana republic.  10months investigation man must wack propaganda.

what type of organisation earns £338k a year and pay out £176k  as salary? only modupe debbie ariyo's one woman empire.  yoruba must have those who live in glass houses must not throw stones in their rich language.

modupe debbie ariyo if you are reading this i know you should earn a living but this is a wrong way of going about it.  the same law that allowed you to set up your chop chop charity allowed these scum of the earth to set up theirs and by the way always declare your grail message affiliation when you discuss these matters because that let people know where you are coming from.

majority of the church of Jesus Christ is a force for good. these ugly people masquerading as pastors are rightly being exposed we must not throw the baby with the bath water that is not fair nor just

problem is many dont want to live the kingdom life but want the kingdom benefit of being free. you ought to know how many good churches these people we call gulible pass before going to these buy 1 get 1 free churches.

people want to be free from demons but have no problem sinning like fish in the river drinks water. self deception is what is worrying africans. everything has its price but we dont want to pay the price of being christian yet expect miracles. continue to visit these rougue churches and lets seehow itl ends

All is a very bad mix out of american preaching, misinterpretation of the bible, african traditions and believes and the unwillings to accpet Europe is not place everybody is a dotcor or a lawyer, drives a nice car and owns a big house.

What happend to the rich Yoruba tradition along the way and why everybody is just chopping money

I am sorry to say - some White Garment Churches and some Power Healing, Power Praying, Fire Mountain and Delivery Churches.

WHO is there? woman/man, who kicked there husband/wife away, who have children from different men/woman,  woman and men, who sleeped with someboby, whenwas or still is married, and people, who have done business not in a good manner.

They are looking for an easy way out, to pay there way out and the so called pastors are just hustlers.


The british goverment should speak out. What is with the African people themself?

Why not meet up, to go to this kind of churches and tell the so called pastor what you think about him!
