    Religious nonsense kills 11 year old.

    "Police in Wisconsin are investigating the death of 11-year-old Madeline Neumann following her parent's revelation that they had placed their faith in prayers over medicine as a means of treating the girl?s diabetes."


    The story is here:

    Idiocy of this kind is truly cringe-worthy.

    Adults ought to be free to pursue whatever "does it" for them - including religious nonsense, if they wish - and even if it harms them.

    But when their actions/beliefs endanger a minor kid, a line has been crossed.

    I see no difference between denying a kid needed medical treatment (whether for religious or other reasons) and outright /neglect abuse - either of which would result in child protective services stepping in.

    Idiocy is idiocy, whether it's religious or not.

    Yet religious idiocy gets a pass and deferential treatment by the authorities.

    Weird...

    Isn't there a whole religion, Christian Science, based on this? When I was a kid, this sort of thing went on all the time in the Christian Science community, every CS kid in school had at least one dead sibling.

    Yeah, but look what it does for the gene pool.
