A Pennsylvania couple may face charges after their 8-month-old son died after a week of suffering from diarrhea and trouble breathing. Instead of seeking medical attention, the couple, whose fundamentalist Christian beliefs teach faith healing, prayed for his recovery. Should they be charged for not seeking the help of a professional or should their beliefs be covered under religions freedom?
Did I mention they also lost a toddler to bacterial pneumonia 4 years ago?
This is so rich. I read a couple of news stories separately, days apart, and it only just occurred to me to put them together because these people are ridiculous. And of course this would start with North Carolina.
I’m all for religious freedoms but I really need to take the time to research why this even exists. And to find out why people are still fighting so hard for the freedom to let old Jewish men put their mouths on freshly snipped baby peens.
