Quick Update & Nigerian Witch Hunter Claiming Religious Discrimination

Well my internet is still off at home, so I'm posting from work. I have no idea when it will be back, maybe they started the disconnections early ;-)

On a more serious matter:
It appears that one of the key fanatics behind the child witch hunts in Nigeria, Helen Ukpabio of the Liberty Gospel Church, is claiming that her religious freedoms have been infringed and is claiming ~$800,000 in damages. The claim is based on the arrest of some members of her group who were disrupting and stealing from a conference on child rights and the problems caused by belief in witchcraft.
If you want to find out more, a lot of information will be turned up by a google search on her name.
There is a petition asking for her and her organisation to be brought to justice which you can sign if you agree with what they are calling for.
