Religious Loons Kill 11 Year Old Daughter

I can't imagine letting my little girl get progressively sicker, paler, weaker and just saying, "Oh, if we pray she will get better."

I can't imagine seeing my beloved daughter suffering from untreated diabetes and saying, "She is sick because she is a sinner."

But proof that these people are just fucking lunatics who need to be locked away for the good of society comes in this quote..

"Madeline Neumann died March 23 — Easter Sunday — at her family’s rural Weston home. Her parents were told the body would be taken to Madison for an autopsy the next day.
“They responded, ’You won’t need to do that. She will be alive by then,”’ the medical examiner wrote in a report."

Apparently prayer can bring your children back from the dead, too.

  1. I have a friend who is a Jehovah's Witness. They have created some odd dilemmas for themselves. It is quite a dilemma for myself as well. I know him to be a principled and loving individual who was arrested for opposing attempts by the medical community to "save" his child. The closeness makes it all very hard to sort out. How do you legitimately endanger a child? I am sympathetic but I cannot agree with the tenets of his faith yet it is, in fact, his very real personal faith that gave his child the love he did in fact receive. How many get none?
