    Fundamentalist couple chooses prayer over medicine again, kills second child

    http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20...her_child.html

    "I am sorry for your loss. Deeply sorry," Judge Benjamin Lerner told the couple. "But in all honesty, I am more sorry for the fact that this innocent little child will not be able to grow up to be what he wanted to be."
    The judge exercised rather more restraint than I would have.

    EDIT: Added, since most probably won't read to the bottom of the article:


    A neighbor of the Schaibles who did not want his name published said Herbert and Catherine Schaible are decent people who raise great kids. They just have one flaw.

    "The only thing I can say bad about them is they never took them to the hospital," the man said. "They have one flaw, and this one flaw should make them go to jail."
    Warning: There is a fine line between discussing the topic and bashing religion. Please do not cross it.

    Call me heartless, but the faster these tards breed themselves out of existence because their kids don't live long enough to perpetuate, the better off we'll all be.

    These guys truly deserve a Darwin award - the irony alone would be worth it.

    so the first kid dying didnt teach them anything... exactly how many kids' deaths would it take for them to learn?

    These two have (or had) something like nine kids, and the one who just died was born after they were put on probation. Their reproductive rate will outpace nature, easily.

    I hope this is sarcasm.

    Anyway, I find it sad that I'm not even surprised by this. I can't imagine how deeply mired one has to be in one's faith to think a child doesn't need medicine when it's sick as long as you wish hard enough for it to be healthy.

    I guess this is getting closed soon, by the way, since it deals with religion.

    This is one of those instances where "freedom of Religion" should be trounced. You should not be allowed to force your religious standards on others, ESPECIALLY children who can't speak for themselves. These people should have been locked up for life and force-sterilized the FIRST time they killed a kid with weaponized stupidity.

    I don't honestly see the point to bashing people like this. The whole story is just tragic in so many ways.

    Precisely. Freedom of Religion until you infringe upon the rights of other seems a suitable standard to me.

    not necessarily. the concept of a deity working through worldly or mundane means is a mental compromise for many religious people to accommodate faith and science

    After a second death I think they should be jailed or something, sadly I don't think they can be. Clear negligence because of faith. Ridiculous in my opinion. I wouldn't even want to be neighbours with such people, just saying.

    Old papa Darwin is playing some tricks on these people. It's like he's trying with all his might to stop these people from spreading their genes.

    On a more serious note, having access to medicine in 2013 and rejecting it for prayer is kind of a fatalistic sadness.

    You don't see the point to bashing people who let their children die instead of providing easily available medical care? I mean, I have spiritual beliefs and even I think these people are fucking worthless.

    God this makes me so angry.. if anything I would want the church to personally go and tell these people that hell is too good for them. I mean, they say these "people" arent a danger to society, but if they raise kids with those values then that disease spreads to further generations.

    Did they spend some time choosing the photographs so they would represent the pair as degenerates, I wonder.
