Here in Butte County California we are dealing with a horrible story. A couple in Paradise CA allegedly killed one adopted child and seriously injured another (still in intensive care). In an early news report a neighbor said they seemed such "god loving" people. Now we know that not only are they devout christians, but that they were exercising "biblical chastisement" as proscribed by a fundamentalist xtian group that advocates corporal punishment of children.
The web "ministry" they followed promotes physically punishing children
with a plastic hose and starting "training" as early as one year of age.

Non-believers should not let these atrocities go unrecognized for what they are, a disgusting, sad, and terrible result of ignorant "faith."
