It is probably only second to animal sacrifice when it comes to people misunderstanding and misrepresenting what African Traditional Religion (ATR)  is about.

It is one of the key ingredients that makes ATR uniquely distinct from westernized religions. This episode discusses the purpose of divination in African spiritual systems.
