Judging by their attitude, behaviour and education, this couple are living in the Dark Ages in Europe. The last person hanged for witchcraft in America was in 1692.
Fast forward to 2017 and this couple, one an adult named Immanuel Church (left in picture above) and a girl, Denise Eddines, have confessed to believing that the cat they brutally killed was possessed by demons. Eddines looks very young and innocent but she is the one possessed by demons. The demons of indoctrination and a lousy education.
And why did they have this ancient thought? Well, Eddines says they thought the cat (whose name was Spunky) was possessed of the devil because he hissed and pawed at the couple while they watched television.
Pardon me but Spunky was hissing at you because you were mistreating him, you fool.
The couple first kicked Spunky out of the TV room and then attacked the cat again in the kitchen when Eddines went to get some food.
Having decided the cat was possessed, Church researched, on the internet, ways to force evil spirits out of a cat. Yep, in their heads, they definitely are living in 1692 or earlier.
Church brewed up a witch’s potion of poison which included: hot sauce, bleach and cleaning products.
Spunky was then ceremoniously killed. The potion was forced down his throat and after around 40 minutes of agony and while alive he was violently kicked and stabbed to death with two swords.
They tried to repeat the process on another cat. The cat survived but is badly injured and is being treated for chemical burns.
This ridiculously uneducated couple had attacked cats that they were meant to be cat sitting for. The owner was their landlord, Nia Wulkan.
It never fails to astonish me how ill-educated some people are in the West and how they harbour such grossly misplaced superstitions harking back to Medieval Europe and the burning of witches and their cat familiars.
Cats still suffer this stigma, hundreds of years after being labelled a carrier of the devil. What is the matter with humans? When will they wake up and switch on their brains?
