Two parents’ devout faith has cost the life of a girl … their own daughter:
Cops Mull Charges After 11-Year-Old With Undiagnosed Disease Dies Easter Sunday
Wisconsin authorities will consider filing charges in the case of an 11-year-old girl who died on Easter Sunday of complications from diabetes that went untreated because police say her parents’ obscure religious beliefs do not allow medical intervention.“When you’re dealing with an 11-year-old child, your first thought is neglect,” Capt. Scott Sleeter, a spokesman for the Everest Metro Police Department in Wisconsin, told ABC News.
Madeline Kara Neumann, who went by the name Kara and was the youngest child of Leilani and Dale Neumann, died Sunday of “diabetic ketoacidosis,” according to a Marathon County autopsy report. Efforts were made to revive the little girl, whose diabetes had never been diagnosed, when she stopped breathing at the house, officials say.
We have, then, a girl who died of diabetes — which could have been prevented since the signs of its onset were not, in this case, instant — because her parents chose “faith” over medicine.
Yes, folks. Religion kills. It really can … it sometimes does … and in this case, it did.
What makes this case even worse is that the parents and the odd sect of whom they are part, are totally unrepentant about this. In their own statement on the matter, they said:
Sometimes we stumble because of lack of faith or repentance in an area but hopefully we correct this and get back up. ‘The righteous shall live by faith.’ Those who do not know Jesus through being born of His Word think it is a terrible thing to die and it is for them.
You read that right: These people see absolutely nothing wrong with a child dying for lack of medical care. For them, this is “God’s way” and they’re quite happy with it. If their cold-blooded lack of concern for the life of a child doesn’t make you sick, there’s something wrong with you.
Welcome to the wonderful world of the extreme lunacy that “faith” sometimes drives people to!Tags: Christianity, David Eells, faith, Madeline Kara Neumann, medicine, prayer
