Dying to Believe

Some more of the same

Religion-FaithHealingHospitalHell

I post one of these every Tuesday. I have lots of help:

The parents of a 22-month-old boy who died from blood loss last month after they failed to provide him with medical attention have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, police said yesterday.

Dean O. Heilman, 32, and his wife, Susan D., 34, members of Faith Tabernacle Congregation, a church that shuns medical treatment, were arrested Saturday. They also were charged with endangering the welfare of a child and conspiracy.

The child, Dean Michael Heilman, cut his right foot July 7 while playing in the backyard of the family’s Lawndale home in the 700 block of Longshore Avenue. The parents tried unsuccessfully to treat the injury themselves and did not contact medical authorities because of their religious beliefs, authorities said.

What is so heart warming about this and similar episodes is that parents are finding the fortitude to stand up against government oppression to protect their religious liberties. The Alliance Defending Freedom needs to be acknowledged for their efforts toward this cause.
