    Sounds like the beginning of a freaky cult...

    These people really don`t get prayer do they? Can`t they see that God has already provided them with healing through the medicine or whatever?

    Gosh.

    i can`t believe they`re allowed to keep their other kids, surely denying a dying person medical care that would save them is akin to manslaughter? or the American equivelent anyways.

    They were too stupid to recognize that it was time to put away the fairytale books and get some medical attention for their daughter. I hope they fry for that, I really do.

    When you lose a child, it is a horrendously catastrophic experience..Every second of every day you want them back..The pain softens, but is never far from your mind..You seriously would do ANYTHING to have one moment again with them..Your heart shatters into a million pieces..never to be repaired...
    BUT THIS....THIS IS MADNESS!...They ALLOWED their daughter to die..THEY are responsible for this childs death....
    I can`t comment no further...I`m spitting nails..and hope to hell their other children don`t develop illnesses that could be easily cured..(obviously not by prayer)

    I found it strange that they weren`t following any organized religion whatsoever, just a little Bible study group. I wonder where they got their initial religious ideas from and why they broke off into their own little group.

    This is so offensive...I have diabetes, and I know for a fact that if my parents neglected my care when I was a minor, it would constitute child abuse. They`d even be charged with negligent manslaughter if I had died. Those police are idiots, the parents are idiots, and I hope the girl`s siblings realize this and get the hell out as soon as possible.

    You know there is this one joke I heard.

    "A small town was going to get flooded. One guy was convinced that God would save him. when the rain started, his friends came by, saying that they were looking for higher ground, but he said that God would save him. So they left.
    When the water started building up to knee-height, a school bus driven by rescue volunteers and filled with other people came to pick him up. He refused, saying that God would save him. So they left.
    He was standing on his roof when a rescue chopper flies close to him, the pilot shouting for the guy to get in. He refused, shouting that God would save him. So it left.
    Sure enough, the flood kills him. While being judged at the gates of heaven, he happens to see God strolling by, and angrily demands why he didn`t save him. God replies, `I tried to. I sent your friends, the bus, and even that freaking chopper to save you.`"

    Religious or not, the parents are [email protected] Don`t sit and f_cking pray.

    Requateer, I was definately going to post that story until I saw I`d been beaten to it. Only the version I know is that the man`s sitting on top of his house in New Orleans and there`s a canoe, a speedboat, and a helicopter.

    Some people need to realize that they can`t pray and then do nothing.

    Brilliant.

    By the way, don`t try telling me God heals people through medicine because he can claim no credit for it. If God (assuming he exists) is indeed responsible for inspiring the science behind medicine in individuals, a long-shot on its own, why the hell wait so long to do so? What a malicious bastard. Appeals for healing made to God have ended in tragedy and most often will; I`ll take man-made medicine any day.

    You know that story about the floods where a woman died waiting for help from God, and when she asked God why he said that he`d given her boats and all that? If you believe that God can make cures (and I do, personally), you should believe that God make DOCTORS to help deliver those cures.

    That poor girl. And why did nobody else ever step and take her from those idiots to get help? It`s some comfort that the God I believe in will take care of her after this tragedy, but...ugh. People like that are just one type of the many that make Christianity look bad. I usually hate homophobes more, but at least they don`t generally let their children die.

    ok. First of all all those people who use this to denounce religion, stop. It was the people who did it, not religion.

    2nd. God does not work through medicine. He does not work at all. The bible guarantees us with freedom of choice, so that means he cant interfere with out eliminating the freedom of choice. (if he did interfere, that would eliminate negative consequences, thus affecting our choice making.)

    Lastly. Christianity can be good, if you don`t stray outside the bounds of logic. Remember, the bible is not Gods word, but the word of god according to MAN.

    Its called Criminal negligence. They as parents had the responsibility to act on her behalf and seek medical treatment for her. I agree with _Requiem_, the police chief needs to recap on his basic abuse laws. Prayer aside, not getting the little girl medical treatment for such a serious condition is like not providing food or shelter.... I say they shouldn`t remain in possessions of the other children with out thorough psychiatric evaluation, or periodic cheek ups by a social worker.

    This is too sad. I don`t think this is a `religion is bad` case which it will surely be used for. I think it`s more likely a lack of education that creates people this impressionable/irrational. A good education exposes people to multiple points of view and encourages critical thinking and self analysis.

    To atheists the story goes:
    A cosmic zombie, who is his own father, gave birth to himself through a woman using immaculate conception and preached that all people must bow down and accept him as master or suffer eternal torment because the first girl he made, miraculously made out of rib bone, took bad dietary advice from a talking snake with legs and damned us all (damn women). So after, killing all the first borns in a city, a commanding plagues, the cosmic zombie dies and raises itself from the dead, never to be seen again, but commands that we eat its flesh and drink its blood and commmunicate to it telepathically, today`s most reliable form of communication. Plus if we trust in this deity he will be sure to ignore our prayers and say, pfft, I already made man...that was the hard part, you do the rest...I`ll see you after your dead slave. Yah, I`m lining up now that I have seen he will do nothing for those who pray.

    "There is no reason to remove them. There is no abuse or signs of abuse that we can see."

    Up until this point I read the article with a mild sense of sadness because a life had been wasted by the willful ignorance of a few individuals.

    Enter that quote.

    Now I`m mad. Now I`m real mad. I accept the fact that individuals can be ignorant. I can NOT accept that a government does nothing to prevent or correct a situation like this. If someone did something like that here in Sweden it would be labelled criminal negligence, possibly manslaughter.
    Freedom of belief is one thing, but the welfare of citizens must come first.

    And everyone who`s dissin` Christians, get your heads out of the "told ya so,"... this is not a representation of Christians, it`s a representation of morons. I know of quite a few moronic "wiccans" or Buddhists that had stupid ideas like this and someone got killed. So stop blaming Christianity... it`s everyone. Because in ever sect, there`s a moron.

    The bible never advises anyone not to "go to the doctor" or seek professional medicine. Yes, you can pray, but go to the doctor too.

    OH yeah... one more thing. My family and other families that I know, are proof that prayer DOES work. I myself have been cured instantly through prayer, and so have others I know. I know a missionary who found a dead boy in a field and prayed in Jesus` name over him, and instantly, he came back. (And yes, the boy was dead, he`s a missionary, he works with dead or dying people, he knows when they`re dead)

    In this case, it probably didn`t work beacuse these people were morons, and didn`t even know what they were talking about since they didn`t even go to church or HAVE a religion... :P

    LKJ could you point to the acredited news article regarding this miraculous recovery without medicine? ... or is there a lack of proof...as usual?
    Being brought back from the dead is usually pretty news worthy...like the kid that froze up in Canada and the doctors brought him back after a few hours with no side effects. Thats a better example...but then agian it uses doctors. :( Hm.

    what a pair of stupid morons. all that can be said about this is basically alreadsaid, now i find this to be a complete stupid cake presented to teh stupidest person alive, but the real icing on this slice of stupidity is that the mother still believes her daughter can be revived. she is dead. dead people do not come back. thats what happens, deal with it, if you wanted her to be alive maybe you should have stopped standing around hoping she would get better and instead take her to the doctors. and to everyone who said they should lose their kids for reason of neglect, i give a virtual cookie to you.

    Even if the other children aren`t being abused, they should still be taken out of the home considering that their mother has seriously diminished mental capacity. Or at least make sure that social workers constantly check in on the home. For goodness sake, she thinks that her daughter can be resurrected!

    Also, LKJSlaine, people can appear dead without actually being dead. It`s unusual, but not unheard of, and being a missionary doesn`t exactly equate to being a doctor. As I`ve mentioned before I feel confident in saying that the I-A-B community is tired of hearing about all the people you know who make what you have to say true. If a person makes a statement it usually follows that they agree with themselves; mentioning possibly imaginary persons who support your beliefs does nothing to help your argument... it just shows that you`re desperate to have others buy into your crap.

    "there you go - absolute proof that praying does not work! I absolutely despise when anybody asks me to pray for the poor or for the end of war... if we got up off our drating asses and stopped praying to a non-existent fantasy man in the sky then maybe we`d actually get something done!"

    so if I use a condom, and it fails, that means condoms dont work??? I had a fever and then I took tylenol, still have a fever, tylenol doesnt work. And if we got off our asses and left IAB we can get something done.

    "normally i don`t have a problem with christians. but if they; a) knock on my door during my breakfast, b) bother me about being athiest or c) kill their kids, then i do have a problem"

    They weren`t christians. And they come to your door in the morning? Yeah, thats not effective.

    "Stupid Religion, It gives people nothing but false hope.
    It makes my blood boil knowing these people are still out there with more children."
    Your spiritual belief is your religion, atheism is a religion.

    "If I pray to be a millionaire while slacking around at home, will God grant my wish?"
    Thats two sins in one! Sloth and Greed.

    " don`t try telling me God heals people through medicine because he can claim no credit for it. If God (assuming he exists) is indeed responsible for inspiring the science behind medicine in individuals, a long-shot on its own, why the hell wait so long to do so? "
    Why not? That would be sloth if it was instant medicine. Patience is a virtue Overmann

    "bassstud09: Yuou should just shoot yourself. With that kind of "reasoning". Religion are the source of all problems in this freaking society but whenever something is good, it is god and whenever somehtign is bad... well it is men. The pathetic tendency of humans to believe in imaginary friends in the sky will drive more and more people to be more and more stupid. People like you really disgust me."

    When good things happen its humans when bad things happen its lack of god. Same crazed philosophy. Neither are valid.

    "LKJSlain: I dont "think" you were cured this is a matter with youre mind, you put youre health in something you believe to be all powerful. Your mind held onto that and you pulled through because you believed he would do something."
    So in conclusion, he prayed and because he prayed he got healed. God works in mysterious ways only known to republicans.

    Okay so you generalized religious people because of one case. Okay, I will do the same. Atheist are idiots because they start sentences without capitalization and use the word "erm". That makes sense not. And all religious peoples grammar is gooder than atheist.

    I agree with bassstud09. allot of you people seem to thing "Anybody that belives in God is crazy and thinks hes a magic zombie-demon who gives us anything we ask for"
    You can believe in God without being a psycho you know. Most people are smart enough to know that just sitting on your ass and praying for something isnt gonna make anything happen. Its a select few who do. and the majority of you people on here think anybody who believes in god is the same.

    I think bassstud09 worded it very well. The bible isnt all a true story persay but stories made up by man. hence "God`s word according to man" And the thing he said about chices makes perfect sense to. there was nothign wrong with them praying the thing they did wrong was not get medical attention. The catholic church is ib no way against a sick person reviving medicine, and they know that just praying doesnt do anything. Its just like asking for a little "extra help" i guess you could say while a pe

So if they were praying while the girl was in the hospital there would have been nothing wronjg with that. Also, just like some religious people are complete psychos some atheists are too.

    My atheism is not the cause of my laziness, which causes my lack of grammar on the internet. Religion is undeniably the cause of this - I agree that there are idiots on both sides, but I`d have to say that an atheist idiot parent wouldn`t prevent their child from having proper medical care, as prayer is the justification for this in their minds. Also, I was clearly NOT bashing religious people, I was attacking religion. There are some fantastic religious people, but I think that religion is deeply flawed.

    One time, a lady prayed and prayed to win the lottery. everyday she would pray, yet she never won. After months, she got frustrated, and in mid prayer said, "God, i pray and i pray, and you never answer. Why have you forsaken me, why haven`t i won yet?"

    God, in all His glory, came down to her, placed his all knowing hand on her head and told her....

    ..."Sweetie, help me out here and buy a ticket"

    If god answers prayers, it`s not in the all-problem solving way. We have to do our part.

    So theres this huge flood, and theres this lady, crazy christian person and she goes on top of her roof, but the water keeps rising. She prays and prays for help, a helicopter comes by, and she declines it, saying her faith in God will save her. She prays more and more, a boat comes by and she declines it because she said her faith in God will save her. Anyways she drowns, and when she gets to heaven, she asks St Peter "Why didnt you answer my prayers?" and then he says "We did, we sent you a helicopter and a boat!".

    Anyways moral of the story is dont be stupid.

    Okay, I like to explain prayer as it is in Evan Almighty. "When someone prays for a family to become close, does he zap them with warm, fuzzy feelings or does he give them the opprotunity to love each other?" I`m sure that she would have lived if not people being dumbasses and expecting God to do everything for them.

    I called the Monkey Mo coffee shop and left a nice little message reassuring that although they were not likely to come under charges in their daughters death, they would burn in the hell they so fervently believe in.

    A little girl dies because her parents prayed for a month while she lay miserable... instead of giving her a shot of insulin. Bastards. Maybe she was better off this way, seeing how they reacted to this.

    P.S. The phone number to the coffee ship is (715) 298-1678 I encourage everyone to call and blame them.

I don`t care what you are, but be RESPECTFUL! THERE ARE MORONS EVERYWHERE! Yes, that means athiests can be idiotic too!
