Horror Show Sunday: Faith Killing

Prayer KillsThis week, we’re going to do something a little different, I’m going to present a video that gives an overview of many of the faith-based deaths that are caused by parents who simply cannot acknowledge that sometimes, their kids need to see a doctor.  I get lots of comments that I shouldn’t focus on just one or two cases of clearly ignorant parents who are misusing their religious beliefs and killing their kids in the process.  However, it isn’t just one or two cases, it never has been, this is an ongoing problem that takes place across the whole of the U.S., and often beyond, where people are taking absurd religious beliefs and applying them to innocent children, often infants and young kids that can’t speak up for themselves, and then trying to use the claim that they have religious freedom to exercise their beliefs however they see fit.  Luckily, the courts are, more and more often these days, disagreeing with them.  So please, take a look, it’s just a few minutes long, but it will show you that, the next time someone tells you that religion does no harm, they’re full of bullshit.
