It is sad that it still exist till date,although not in all parts of Igbo land. It is a very strong stigma that will take not just a serious stand but also God's grace to erase. I was told that Osu's are living sacrifices made to the gods. They belong to the gods ,so involvement such as marriages  and blood issues remain forbidden till tomorrow. So God help my generation that believes in love.

It will definitely fizzle out in our generation. After the generation of our grand parents and parents passes away.

It's not a matter of prayer. Take for instance, the majority of the youth today don't really bother themselves about it like our parents do. It's a sign that when our parents do leave the world for us, we wont bother ourselves with such stupid laws again. :)

under their parents tutelage regardless.

"majority wins the vote"; "minority does the ruling".

When one becomes a christian he/she automatically becomes a new creature.  And as christians we dont believe in that because we believe the blood of christ has cleans and redeem all that accept him. Osuu we know its been real for yrs and for some yrs know its no longer shouting unlike before.  but some people still hold on to it, i remember asking my dad 10yrs back if i found a man i love an coincidentally he is an  Osuu and my dad said he will dis-own me if i ever try such

Osuship is also in the bible...it's a long thing.

does the fact that a person accepts Christ
means there's no Devil; or that Satan doesn't exist?
