Two infants, ages 1 and 2, were stabbed to death by their 28 year old mother and 21 year old friend in an exorcism performed in Germantown, Maryland. Two other children were seriously injured in this apparent effort to cast out Satan and his minions.
And who says it's just tribal societies that murder witches and cast out demons in the name of their god?
Let the religious hits keep a comin'.
Very dangerous to be unwanted! Brainless parents who keep the babies coming and then think up excuses to torture the children and get rid of them.
People have no sense! If the murdered children are possessed of anything it's probably a bad diaper. Then you have nutjobs like this that must want to spend the rest of their lives apart from others. It makes no sense at all!
But my mother used to tell me when she was alive that things like this happening "proved we were in the last days" and that the "devil would be stronger at that time." What it proves to me is that we have more nutjobs coming along ever since we lost the right to decipline our own chilren. That makes the nutjobs stronger at this time!
And yet the religious right would force women to give birth no matter the cost. This disconnect astonishes me. A young woman who is being forced, right now, to lie in a hospitial bed, while being kept alive by life support. Against the wishes of her husband and parents because she's 12 weeks pregnant. Another religious hit as Pat said.
You see the disconnect everywhere in the lives of xtians. Almost funny was the woman I saw demonstrating against abortion in an astrakhan coat: that is the fur made from the skin of aborted lambs.
I thought this story was just tragic. I also thought it was tragic that they are actually being examined to determine their sanity, as belief in devils and exorcism doesn't automatically make them insane.
Very very sad.
