Who is responsible for this?

One boy was kept in a chicken coop, and parasites ate out his eye. Another was found living in a toilet pit. One was accused of being a witch after his parents died of Aids - he is HIV-positive too.
BBC Online has posted a report on Angolan children who are victims of exorcisms and religiously and medically excused maltreatment.

Who is to blame for this atrocity?
> religion?
> the state?
> a western sensitivity towards non western views?
> me or you?
