I read a story about 4 years ago about a couple in Pennsylvania who prayed
their child to death. Herbert and Catherine Schaible were given ten years of probation after
this faith healing incident in 2009. The most important condition of that probation was to seek medical care for their remaining children.
Once again they have allowed their fundamentalism to get in the way of taking action. They lost their 8-month-old son, Brandon, last week after he suffered from diarrhea and breathing problems for at least a week, and stopped eating. Prayer working to no avail once again.
These situations are only made possible by fundamentalist religion. So if anyone is ever wondering how people get to an atheistic worldview here is a perfect example. Fairy tales do not make good guides to real life.
