coming from a deep fundamentalist religious tradition i've never understood the logic behind praying for your headache to go away, taking an aspirin at the same time, and then praising god for making it go away through the power of prayer. if prayer is so powerful why take the aspirin in the first place?

Negligence leading to the death of someone else's child? Better believe your going to prison.

Negligence leading to the death of your own child? Your rights as a parent to raise your child as you choose.

I think there is a logical disconnect here. I think it was Bill Cosby who joked about it, but with every passing day, year, and news story I seriously think there needs to be some sort of a certification process for parenting.

And you'll never know for sure, either...

:devil:

lol. psych. I am stating their argument to show it in stark contrast to the case of people with less inherent responsibility yet strangely more accountability for the well being of a child as to invoke ridicule, criticism and general "bitch you crazy?" sentiment towards these moronic (so-called) parents.

A flood is expected to wipe out a small town and evacuation is begun. A jeep is driving through town and comes across a guy standing on his front porch. “Hop in,” they said, “The flood will be coming in any minute.” “Don’t worry about me,” the man replied, “I have faith that God will save me.” Unable to change his mind, they drove on without him.

Soon the flood waters began to roll in, and a rescue team drifted by this man’s house in a boat. “Hop in,” they requested, “We’ll get you out of here.” “Don’t worry about me,” was the man’s reply, “I have faith that God will save me.” Unable to change his mind, the rescue team continued on without him.

Not long after that, the flood waters had completely covered this man’s house, and he was hanging from the chimney. A rescue crew in a helicopter spotted him and dropped him a ladder. The man refused the ladder insisting that God would save him. Unable to change his mind, the helicopter went on without him.

The water continued to rise and the man drowned. On his way through the pearly gates, he met up with God and exclaimed, “You really let me down! I had faith that you would save me and look what happened!” “Well let’s see,” was God’s reply, “I sent you a jeep, a boat and a helicopter.”

It's an epidemic I tell ya.

CPS should've stepped in, but who would've turned them in.
