Religious cult starves toddler to deathMikey 31 comments
As an atheist who does his best to be tolerant of religion, hearing stories like this makes the task almost impossible. These sorts of stories make me ask "wouldn't we all be better off without religion?". It's responsible for people performing such grotesque atrocities in the name of and also spawns moronic cults like this.
A religious cult called 1 Mind Ministries has because he did not say the word 'Amen' after meals. Police say they stopped feeding 15 month old Javon Thompson in December 2006.
The boy's mother, Ria Ramkissoon and four other members of a group are being charged with 1st degree murder, and another
member coward eludes police and is still at large.
Ramkissoon's mother (the boy's grandmother) says it wasn't her daughters choice to not feed her son. She says someone higher up in the cult ranks made the decision and she had to follow her instructions.
What can you say about this? Really. How dumb, how idiotic and how much of a fricking lunatic do you have to be to follow through with instructions to starve your own child to death? Here's how dumb...
The cult members involved in this despicable crime - get this - actually believed that by praying to God the boy's lifeless body would be resurrected. But instead he began to decompose. Fricking idiots.
This truly makes me sick and sad.
