Second Child Death from Christian ‘Faith Healing Couple’
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,
Once again, a child has to pay the price for over zealous Christian behaviour. For far too long, the Christian right has drilled a literal study of the Bible into the hearts and minds of the fickle and feeble minded believers. We’ve been misfed the archaic and fraudulent narrative of the purported Gospel of Mark’s Great Commission:
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” – Mark 16:14-18.
For the second time in a row, a Christian couple has refused medical treatment for their ailing child, which has resulted in the death of their second child. NBC News (Philadelphia) reports:
A couple that was sentenced to probation after their 2-year-old died in 2009 from pneumonia have had another child die.
Herbert and Catherine Schaible, fundamentalist Christians who believe in the power of prayer ahead of modern medicine, recently had their 8-month-old son die, according to Philadelphia Police spokeswoman Jillian Russell. It wasn’t clear when the child died, or the cause of death, but the death hasn’t been ruled suspicious, Russell said. The child was taken to a funeral home by an as yet unknown individual and the undertaker alerted police, Russell said.
During their trial, the Schaibles’ lawyers said the parents were targeted because their fundamentalist Christian beliefs espouse faith healing.
It is quite unfortunate that this has happened once more. This should serve as a wake up call that Christian scholars should do right by their studies and remove these man-made verses from their ‘scripture’, so as to avoid the murder of innocent children due to an interpolated man made dogmatic theological farce.
