Unfortunate as it is, I can probably do one of these every Tuesday. This is recent:
Two Mormon parents who own a nutritional supplement company are accused of letting their toddler son die from meningitis because they tried to treat him with home remedies instead of medicine.
David and Collet Stephan have pleaded not guilty to charges that they failed to provide the necessities of life to their 19-month-old son Ezekiel, reported CBC News.
Although Ezekiel’s parents did not substitute prayer for medical treatment, their faith in home remedies proved just as fatal as if they had prayed to Jesus. When faith wins out over pragmatism, somebody needs to come around to collect the bodies.
