There was a day that a rabbits foot...
Tanzanian Witch Doctors Take Limbs from Albino Children as Good Luck Charms

I don't suppose it would do any good to inform the witch doctors that having albino limbs doesn't work out lucky with those unlucky enough to be born with them. Dodgy

I heard about that--such a sad story. Yet again, another story of harming others due to religious beliefs.

It's not about luck. It's about money.

It's about money because there is a demand because there is the superstition.

I'm trying to wrap my head around how much of a horrible person you have to be to do something like that. Even pretending for ten seconds it isn't utterly moronic to even think items bring good luck, just how much of a self centered jackass do you have to be to be willing to deprive someone of a limb to make your life easier?

But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

It left me speechless. Such level of idiocy isn't something that can be easily comprehended I would say.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

You have to get up real early in the morning to get that much stupid into one day.
