Ignorant parents guilty of killing daughter in prayer death caseMikey 8 comments
As you may recall from last year, 11 year old Madeline Kara died from a treatable form of diabetes because she was unlucky enough to be born to a pair of ignorant superstitious luddites. Madeline's parents thought that praying to God would be more effective than seeking medical help, and over a 30 day period she suffered through weakness, nausia, vomiting, loss of appetite and extreme thirst, until she deteriorated to her death. Here's my original article (which provoked quite a reaction) if you missed it.
One piece of has emerged. The parents (I use that term loosely) 47 year old Dale Neumann and 41 year old Leilani Neumann have been convicted of their daughters death and face up to 25 years in prison. They will be sentenced October 6 2009. Said Dale Neumann:
"If I go to the doctor, I am putting the doctor before God. I am not believing what he said he would do."
Ignorance at it's finest, but at least they won't be able to breed again.
Thanks to Gina for the tip on this one.
