Five-year-old Jepheth Afum was brought to a hospital in Ghana last week. Doctors found that he was anemic and losing blood quickly.
They knew the only way to save him was to give him a blood transfusion, so they began the procedure. And what did his father do during all this?
….Wait! Before you respond, I should tell you his parents are Jehovah’s Witnesses. And JWs forbid blood transfusions…
[Father] Kwabena Afum and some members of Jehovah Witnesses besieged the theatre room in a bid to prevent them from carrying out their professional duties.
The police, upon hearing the story, rushed to the place to restore law and order and arrested the boy’s father in the process.
The father wanted to see his son die than for him to get a blood transfusion.
But the story gets even worse.
The boy got better.
The son is “currently in the care of the Social Welfare Department in the district.”
This is almost as bad as radical Islamic fathers whose daughters get raped and, in response, they perform an “honor killing” on the girl.
What is it that we hear religion is all about again? Love?
Yep. That’s it. Love.
