Faith = Abuse ?

Sad story. A young girl develops diabetes, but her parents choose to pray for it to end. It was treatable, she could have survived, but her parents prayed over her as she wasted away. And the mom seems to still think she can be resurrected.

But it gets worse, PZ Myers notes...
But wait! That isn't the punchline. Read this and weep.

The girl has three siblings, ranging in age from 13 to 16, the police chief said.

"They are still in the home," he said. "There is no reason to remove them. There is no abuse or signs of abuse that we can see."
Their sister is dead of stupidity and neglect; she died painfully with their dumb-as-rocks parents hovering over her, chanting to their sky fairy. And this brain dead cop sees no sign of abuse? What is it, does calling it religion make it invisible?
