Kimbe Bay on the Pacific Ocean, Papua New Guinea

Authorities in Papua New Guinea have arrested 29 members of a ‘cannibal cult,’ who’ve been accused of murdering seven witch doctors in the country’s jungle interior. The cult members reportedly ate their victims brains raw and concocted soup from their penises, the Associated Press reports.

Despite the criminal charges they face, “they don’t think they’ve done anything wrong; they admit what they’ve done openly,” Police Commander Anthony Wagambie, of the Madang province, told the Associated Press. The killers said they were seeking revenge against the witch doctors, whom they claim were evil sorcerers who extorted money and demanded sex from poor villagers in exchange for their services.

By eating their organs, the cult members believed they would personally benefit by absorbing their supernatural powers and becoming bullet-proof, Wagambie said. These types of beliefs are common, he said, estimating that between 700 and 1,000 cult members live scattered throughout Papua New Guinea’s northeast interior. The majority have likely consumed human flesh.

One local expert, however, said this recent bout of cannibalism “goes beyond the local culture.” He told the National newspaper, published in Papua New Guinea, that specific people are trained to hunt sorcerers — people who would never kill in broad daylight, mutilate and eat flesh and organs, or prepare soup from the victims’ penises.

All but one (whose whereabouts remain unclear) of the 29 suspects appeared in a Madang court Tuesday, where they were charged with willful murder. The outcome of the trial has yet to be determined, with the suspects currently held in custody. Wagambie said he expected police to make around 100 more arrests for cult-related crimes over the weekend.

A sorcerer once tried to exorcise me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

And that is how you get Kuru, a mad cow like disease that has been a particular problem in Papua New Guinea.  If you must eat people's brains, don't do it there.

Nothing but tribal culture that it is acceptable in their side of the country.  Now, if they did it to protect innocent people from being raped...Good for them. But, if they were going to become the new witch doctors (power hungry as it is all over the world) by eating from that soup to do the same as the other ones were doing... then, serve their brains to the animals.

The Sodomite Agenda

PLEASE SEE ALSO: THE CONSEQUENCES OF SEXUAL PERVERSION AND SODOMY

INTRODUCTION

The research for this web page has left us feeling much violated after

having conducted much research on the homosexual/sodomite agenda for the

United States of America and the rest of the world.  There is a variety

of filth out there that is much more wicked than we had ever imagined. 

The wickedness of man is great in the earth, and every imagination of

the thoughts of his heart are only evil continually.  Much of the

reading that we have done has been revolting to the Christian

conscious.  The words wicked, vile, and an abomination are not adequate

to describe the cesspool and sewer of depravity which mankind  has

slithered into with Satan.  The gathering of some of the statistics for

this page required that we read some very vulgar language and statistics

that are not fit for Christian ears.  In our article "The Consequences

of Sexual Perversion And Sodomy" we document the trail of filth and

violence left by these reprobates.  We will not publish our sources here

because to do so would run the risk of violating or offending some

young Christian.  This is not a topic to research for a Christian that

is young in the faith.  How it must have pained God to have to record in

the pages of Scriptures the deeds of reprobate minds.  The focus of

this page is to present what God says about sodomy and other sexual

perversions.  While conducting this research this Scripture came to

mind:

 Sodom and Gomorrah were specifically destroyed for being lazy,indifferent, and cruel to others. Maybe you should contemplate how you've been like Sodom and repent of your sins instead of twisting what the Scriptures say to suit your own agenda.

I love how everything that falls outside of Judean / Christian beliefs is labelled a cult.

These people were eating each other before the word cult was even invented! It's there way of life, always has been and obviously some would prefer it stay that way.

Glad I don't live there, but hey it's not a cult. It's their reality.

 I'm sure being killed and eaten is just some alternative, just-as-good, "way of life".

Ouch ouch at the ignorance you display, there  were equal form of cannibalism in European tribes, .....the problem is that you are attaching the phenomenon to the people rather than culture/education/economic realities ...that create a particular mindset....

Anyone of us is equally capable of adopting that culture if we were born into it...fire just have to be started, and it will be a norm....anything that is possible, given the chance will happen.

It is your lack of intellect and speaking from behind your keyboard that is making you draw this narrow connections of reality..

 How about the cannibalistic Christian practice of the Eucharist:

Jesus said: "Take this and eat it, for this is my body."

 My aunt once buried the Eucharist wafer in the back yard because she wanted to see if Jesus would rise up in three days.  Makes about as much sense as any thing else in Catholicism.

They think they're bulletproof for eating other people's flesh? Shoot each one in the head one time. Anybody who walks away is innocent.

Why don't we do with this the world's theists as well? Ask them for their god/s to give us a single thing we can use to forward Humanity's interests; a medical cure of some kind, a new scientific discovery, a miracle plant not yet discovered, a miracle drug we can quickly Prohibit in order to mix it with poison and sell on the street with the same label as the medicine; just something - anything - that takes Humanity a step forward. 

When the theists cannot, we should instantly rest their filthy lying exploiting faces in permanent peace. Theists have always been and are the only disturbance of the peace.

It is actually a two birds with one stone type of situation; the people who lie about their abilities get eaten by the people who are crazy enough to eat other people, and those people are then taken care of by the more advanced (relatively) humans. It's akin to a heroine dealer shooting his/her supplier and here come the police to arrest him/her.
