    So to answer your question... Yes.
    And frankly, if you did do something that you hadn't intended, you had better pray someone like me is sitting on your jury.

    No purpose is served to the community to have someone sitting in a prison cell over something they did not intend.

    Ahh well, more proven and sourced false premises from atheists. Some things never change.

    I think the meaning of that phrase is self evident in the context given. Not that you can't mess with it using semantics. Which is a favorite attack strategy for theists.
    Ignorance is the refuge of faith
    It's become very apparent that there is nothing respectable about faith

    Yeah I know, darn those pesky words and their pre-determined definitions, why can't any word just mean whatever the hell we want when we want it to

    Interesting. It would seem the community would benefit in that there would be one less idiot making poor decisions that kill people in the community's midst.

    I'm sure Otty Sanchez down in San Antonio didn't intend to eat her baby's brain last Thursday, either, but do we really want her running around loose?

    These so called idiots, were not killing people. A person in their care died because of a personal belief that prayer would help heal her.
    This in no way would have an effect on anybody else in the community except family.
    Nor would his release have any effect on the community.
    The only way could possibly argue what you have, that he shouldn't be released, is if another person was going to be placed in their care.
    Simple monitoring, that they would have to pay for, can take care of that.

    Having people that stupid running around can only make the community worse. Nothing good can come from it.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Oh look.... Diffinitive proof that prayer works.

    Seriously though, I can not fathom how the words "I believe" justify these actions. Why do we have to respect someones religion even if it kills, abuses, or "harms for life" their children?
    For the same reasons that Liberals are free to be Liberals.

    How stupid. Being liberal doesn't infringe upon the rights of others. Refusing to get your daughter medical treatment resulting in her death obviously does.

    The act of removing these parents from the community keeps them from reproducing and allowing another child to die in the future. I'm sorry you are struggling to grasp such a simple concept.
