    My thoughts is that the journalist is a bit of a drama queen.

    Wait! A witchdoctor is suing the Humanists for libel?

    *Gets popcorn*
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    I don't think witch hunter and witchdoctor are synonyms.

    I think that they should make witch hunting seasonal, like deer or moose hunting. Otherwise they could cull the entire herd as a result of over witch hunting. Some degree of conservation is necessary.

    Truth, as always, is far stranger than fiction -- and usually less plausible.
    "The only way that has ever been discovered to have a lot of people cooperate together voluntarily is through the free market. And that's why it's so essential to preserving individual freedom.” -- Milton Friedman

    What is "witch hunting", and what is the sect of Christianity that promotes it called? What are their methods and how do they harm children? That article says all sorts of things about how bad Helen Ukpabio and her church are but since it doesn't give any details I don't really know what the hell they are talking about or if Ukpabio is really as bad as they say she is.

    Obviously an export from Britain being returned; likely as coherent:

    Sorry HopAlong, I already used that Monty Python reference.

    And I risk feeling your wrath because I'm secure in the knowledge that 1) I have the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, and 2) I can count to three. "Harmless little Bunny" - I rather doubt it.
