It is not every day that I get really, REALLY angry. Today is one of those days and this article is the reason for my anger.
I may be an atheist, but I have no problem with people following whichever religious / spiritual path they choose to follow. Provided of course you do not hurt anyone in the pursuit of your chosen religion. Harming anyone in the name of religion is not on.
Then there is the crack-pot craziness of STARVING a BABY to death because he refused to say “Amen”. That is pure insanity. I have a three year old son and I know as well as anyone how stubborn and contrary a toddler can be. He is not an evil demon, he is a developing personality. Testing the boundaries and asserting himself in any and every way he can.
The claim that the mother, Ria Ramkissoon, had no control over the situation is ridiculous! If my son was starving to death I would do anything to save his life. I do not accept her excuse.
A religious group which does not understand this, and kills a baby, has crossed the line, overstepped the boundary and gone too far. These people have to be stopped. Freedom of religion is one thing, but there has to be some kind of safety system.
Murder is Murder. Murdering a toddler for being a toddler is the most heinous crime and there is NO excuse.
