Dying to Believe

Some more of the same

Religion-WaitUntilYouAreDead

Tuesday again. It must be time for another one of these:

Last Monday, Hemant posted about Alex Radita, the son of apparent faith healers Emil and Rodica Radita. Alex, a life-long diabetic, died at age 15, weighing only 37 pounds, after his parents repeatedly refused to accept his medical diagnosis. The Calgary couple chose prayer over insulin.

We didn’t know for sure five days ago that the boy died because the parents preferred to pray over him rather than get him the medical care he needed, but in the course of their murder trial, that fact just got confirmed.

If I can take any consolation at all from this it is this happened in Canada and not in the United States of America. No consolation whatsoever for Alex.
