    Lawyers to ask Wisconsin court to rule in prayer death


    Im sorry, but a child health trumps a silly religous belief. Especially when the disease is treatable.
    Unf---ing real!

    This kind of nonsense should not be allowed to happen.


    MADISON, Wis. (AP) A couple who prayed while their daughter slowly died of diabetes will try Tuesday to persuade the state Supreme Court to overturn their homicide convictions, arguing state law protects them from prosecution.
    The case presents charged questions for the court about where religious freedom ends. The justices for the first time will have to weigh whether the state's faith-healing exemptions protect parents from criminal liability if their choices lead to a child's death.

    The parents should be in jail, what they did to their daughter was un-freaking believable. What the state should have done was take her away, and get her the proper medical attention she needed. If an adult wants to forgo treatment due to religious beliefs then fine, but a parent should not have the right to kill their child because of a religious belief they hold.

    It is a horrible practice, but they should be allowed to do it, and their convictions should be overturned.

    Hopefully the judge just laughs at the couple and tells them no.Its one thing trying every medical doctor under the sun and praying to god for help and its another thing not taking the child to the doctor and expecting God to go do something. Kind of reminds me of this joke

    A religious man is on top of a roof during a great flood. A man comes by in a boat and says "get in, get in!" The religous man replies, " no I have faith in God, he will grant me a miracle."

    Later the water is up to his waist and another boat comes by and the guy tells him to get in again. He responds that he has faith in god and god will give him a miracle. With the water at about chest high, another boat comes to rescue him, but he turns down the offer again cause "God will grant him a miracle."

    With the water at chin high, a helicopter throws down a ladder and they tell him to get in, mumbling with the water in his mouth, he again turns down the request for help for the faith of God. He arrives at the gates of heaven with broken faith and says to Peter, I thought God would grand me a miracle and I have been let down." St. Peter chuckles and responds, "I don't know what you're complaining about, we sent you three boats and a helicopter."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, I guess you are ok with honor killings then too right? I mean, that is their religious belief as well.

    LOL. No, they neglected their child and failed to get medical attention that she needed. I blame them and their silly beliefs.

    Since diabetes is entirely treatable, that's a little like arguing that a parent who never feeds their kid didn't kill the kid, starvation did.
