At what point do religious beliefs take precedent over the need for medical help, especially when dealing with the lives of young children.

At what point should parents be held criminally responsible where their faith-based and other decisions result in serious harm or death to a child?

As morally reprehensible as I find "parents" who allow their children to die and suffer curable medical conditions, I cannot see how they could be held legally responsible while maintaining a strict separation of church and state. Its all these grey areas that keep a subject from being black and white.
