Faith healing couple sentenced to 90 days in jail

All religions that defy the laws of the USA and/or endanger people should be expunged from our country! Any religion that causes harm to people should be eliminated, including psychological damage due to brainwashing and pedophilia, and their leaders should face criminal charges. Period.

I know its harsh but if we just let these people do their faith "healing" thing, they will eventually die out and be gone from this world (assuming of course they do not have large numbers of people joining their cult).... Darwinian evolution at work.

Wow , that judge just gave me chills with his perfect answer" 


"Your prayers should compliment ... not compete with ... proper medical care"

Wow- That church is about a mile from my brothers place-

They've been in the news before. This time it was "only blindness, and in only one eye". The time before a kid died.


One of the restrictions they have is "any children they have now or adopt in the future" ????

They can still adopt children???!!! They shouldn't even be able adopt a pet!

Are you kidding me!!!! What would it take???


Some people have to jump through legal hoops to adopt and they would actually take care of them- proper medical attention and a non-insane education.

They probably have a lot of adoptees- I can't imagine anyone would actually join a full-on nut-job cult like that. It's the only way to get new members- and as they keep letting them needlessly die- they must adopt more to save. Oh the irony.

@Dustin - Yes, you can tell he was restraining himself. To me he was thinking "you [bleeping] nutcases, get a [bleeping] clue". I think he put it well too.
