This mentality baffles me. Have they never stopped and thought "hey, god probably has a lot on his plate, trying to run the universe and all. Maybe, instead of demanding that he stop everything and fix my problems, I can just take the damn pills!"

A Man is stranded on a floating shipwreck, so he prays for God to save him. As luck would have it a sailing boat comes by and the captain shouts to him "do you need any help?!" The Man replies, "No thanks, God will save me" and the sailing boat moves on. A few more days pass and a fishing trawler passes the wreck and the crew shouts to him "Do you need any help?!" The Man again replies, "No thank you, God will save me!" More time passes and eventually the Man, from exhaustion and dehydration passes away. When entering Heaven he meets God and asks him "God, I prayed for help, why didn't you save me?" God replies, "You jackass, I sent you two ships!"
Another reason why I firmly believe that children should be protected from religion until they are old enough to deiced what religion they wish to follow or if they want to follow a religion at all without any external pressure from family.

Brothers kill 1 child, two adults, out of irrationality and aggressiveness.
Why is the former less worthy of bashing than the latter?
Even the most religious among us are going to look at this and go "the fuck is wrong with these people?"
Indeed - black or white mentality - no religious group really 100% advocates against medicine - the problem is people are so misinformed about their OWN faith that they believe that giving their child medicine is "giving into satan" cause its science.....
10 years for breaking the probation is far to light, should be 10 years and a murder charge on top of it. Also I hope the children never have to see their parents again, I can only hope their not old enough to have been totally brainwashed already.
'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
And there they lay I damn me eyes
All lookouts clapped on Paradise
All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
Doesn't this mean that, to them, God killed their children? If I were them I'd look for a new god.
The problem here is that this couple truly believes that the fate of their child is in god and god's hands alone. Going to a hospital or taking medicine would be showing a lack of faith. And the fact that the child died was god's will.
The judge summed it up best when he said they aren't a danger to society, but they are a danger to their children.
I'm glad the remaining 7 children were taken away from them. Clearly they are too entrenched in their faith to be allowed to make responsible decisions for their children. I can only hope they do not have any more in the future.
