Interests
In some tribes of the Omo River Valley in southwestern Ethiopia, certain children
are considered Mingi (Impure, Ritually polluted)

Reasons for being declared Mingi are:
Being born out of wedlock.
Being the result of an unplanned pregnancy.
Being born a twin.
Being born with some sort of deformity or imperfection.
Having one's genitals injured in some way.
Having ones teeth develop in the upper jaw before the lower jaw.
Chipping a tooth during childhood.

Children declared Mingi are considered cursed by the spirits.

It is also believed that Mingi children will bring misfortune to
the community if allowed to live.

Children declared Mingi are either abandoned to die or killed.

Mingi children are either drowned, starved, or, in the case of infants,
have dirt stuffed in their mouths so that they choke to death.

Please, please pray that this evil practice stop!

you might wanna be careful when it comes to this guy named matthewjabeznazarioa. I made a journal about this guy, and so have many others (which are also linked in said journal). Just came by to tell you, that's it. and if you still don't believe me, then, well.. you can just ignore me and just go on with your day, a'right? just don't say i didn't try to warn you.

Please let me pray to God that anyone who said "Satan" in my profile should be stopped.
