Killing Children over Religion
All three little innocent children pictured above are victims of religious superstition. All three children died because their parents believed in the faith-healing BS that the Bible is full of.
The first little child who's pictured above is Harrison Johnson. In September of 1998 he was stung by over 430 yellow-jackets. His parents are Christians who believe in "faith-healing" so they prayed for him for seven hours before calling for medical help. Harrison died. His parents actions are perfectly legal in the state of Florida where this tragedy took place. This murderous behavior is also legal in 45 other states in the 50 United States. The only states that are progressive enough to not permit the killing of innocent children for religious "reasons" are Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts and South Dakota.
The second child pictured above is Amy Hermanson from Sarasota, Florida. She had diabetes. She also had Christian Science parents. The two don't mix and Amy lost. Amy was visibly sick for a period of four weeks. As many people do who believe in the hocus pocus of faith-healing, Amy's mother was pretending everything was alright. She took Amy to visit a neighbor who encouraged her to take Amy to a doctor. She refused. A few minutes latter Amy crawled into the room begging her mother to take her home. Amy died a few days latter.
The third picture is of Ian Lundman from Minnesota. He also suffered from both diabetes and Christian Science parents. Minnesota is one of the 46 backward states stepped in superstition where it's perfectly legal to kill kids if your religious beliefs embrace faith-healing. Ian exhibited all the signs and warnings of diabetes: frequent urination, vomiting and labored breathing. His custodial mother did nothing but hire a Christian Science practioner and Christian Science nurse. Since they believe in the deadly superstition of faith-healing they offered no medical help. Ian became yet another victim of "revealed" religion.
It's estimated that every month between 1 and 5 children die due to the religious superstition of their parents or guardians. The World Union of Deists is trying to change the laws that allow this assault on our children and our reason. We are currently circulating petitions that call for an end to the religious exemptions that promote this type of deadly superstition. Please help us by taking part in this important effort. Send an email to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your desire to help us in this matter and I'll help you draft a petition for your state. Don't let Harrison's death, and the deaths of the other innocent children, be for nothing. Together we will make a difference!
