Police: Girl Dies After Parents Pray for Healing Instead of Seeking Medical Help

Wow, this one is just plain stupid. Don’t they know praying doesn’t fucking work? Its been tested This is ridiculous. I hope they feel like shit now and they aren’t believers anymore. But knowing those thick headed people they are probably just saying “Oh, God took my “precious” daughter to a better place.” My ass. I even added another category for this. WTF?

From the article:

WESTON, Wis. — An 11-year-old girl died after her parents prayed for healing rather than seek medical help for a treatable form of diabetes, police said Tuesday.

Treatable form of diabetes. Did you read that? Oh boy.

Everest Metro Police Chief Dan Vergin said Madeline Neumann died Sunday.

“She got sicker and sicker until she was dead,” he said.

You’d think after they noticed she was getting sicker and their prayers weren’t working they would actually go see a professional?

Vergin said an autopsy determined the girl died from diabetic ketoacidosis, an ailment that left her with too little insulin in her body, and she had probably been ill for about 30 days, suffering symptoms like nausea, vomiting, excessive thirst, loss of appetite and weakness.

30 days and all they did was pray? That has got to be one of the stupidest things I’ve ever read.

The girl’s parents, Dale and Leilani Neumann, attributed the death to “apparently they didn’t have enough faith,” the police chief said.

Sorry, but this made me laugh.

The mother believes the girl could still be resurrected, the police chief said.

Wow, these people are delusional. They shouldn’t go to jail, they should be locked up in an insane asylum.

The family does not attend an organized church or participate in an organized religion, Vergin said. “They have a little Bible study of a few people.”

Ah, that’s the problem! They didn’t go to church. If they went to church maybe she would have survived. God is punishing them. Shame on them!

The girl’s death remains under investigation and the findings will be forwarded to the district attorney to review for possible charges, the chief said.

Hopefully they get a nice sentence. They truly deserve it.

  1. I saw a page that had a huge list of these thing on it. Real sad. These people are crazy. Most of the incidents on the lost were by people who followed Church of Christian Science, or some such. I’ll look back an send it to you.

  2. Wow those people are dumb… Now I think you and me will agree on something, for the same reasons! Except with different reasons for believing the reasons. Tricky eh? The Bible doesn’t say to pray for a sick person until they die – Trust me. If I break an arm or get cancer, I’m going to a flippin doctor! That’s what they’re there for isn’t it?

    Likely, those two parents and their “Bible study” group were rather off-base with their beliefs bout Christianty and God. I might be wrong too, for all I know they honestly believed and knew the Bible and still thought prayer would work.

    Now I have to say this too… I pray. I believe prayer is good, pray when people get sick! I mean honestly if you’re a Christian, the Bible says pray! But you still need to do what you can do on your own!

    I look forward to your reply – As I do on my other posts.
