They Killed Their Child

When Dale and Leilani Neumann's 11-year-old daughter Kara came down with a treatable form of diabetes, they opted to pray for God to heal her rather than seek actual medical care. Because God performs miracles only when you least expect it, He allowed Kara to die. For inadvertently killing their daughter, the Neumanns have just been sentenced to six months in jail and ten years of probation. "But they killed their child!" you're saying. Well, let's put this in perspective. Those six months in jail will be served over six years, with each parent alternating one month in jail at a time so that they can take care of their two remaining children. "Wait, they have two other children! None of them are safe!" Well, hold on a second. As part of their ten year probation, the health of their children will be evaluated once every three months, and the Neumanns will be forced to take them to real doctors if they become sick. "Okay, but didn't they kill their fucking child?" Yes, but the judge in their trial has said that the Neumanns are good people who were just a little misguided. "Child! Dead! What the fuck is wrong with you? Why are these people allowed to continue caring for children? Are you insane?" Look, I don't know what to tell you. God works in mysterious ways. And sometime that mystery involves killing children. Hey, where are you going? More details here.
