I remember a story I read a few months ago (I would have to search for it on Google) about people in an African country (can't recall the name offhand) hunting down and killing albinos, believing that their body parts bring fortune. I was not aware that there were African albinos, but apparently they have a tough time of it. They have high rates of skin cancer and have to spend much of their time indoors to avoid the sun. Now they have to hide for their lives.

Yup, that is another one ... really, i don't mind cultures who decide to eat dogs, eat cats blah blah, but when you start hurting other humans as a way to gain some sort of goal (real or fairytale) then you need to be stopped ...

but they dont sacrifice their children...they sacrifice other peoples children.

This isnt a case of ritual sacrifice in the truest sense of the word, because its not a true sacrifice at all...these arent offerings are they. That pre-supposes that such acts are consensual.

Its very rare even in the cultures that used to practise human sacrifice, that it was anything but murder.
