There's the dad in Wisconsin who is accused of killing his daughter because he didn't seek lifesaving medical help for the diabetes that killed her. Instead, he prayed. He considered his daughters illness a test of his faith.

The 47-year-old Dale Neumann, is a "full-gospel Christian" who has three other children (that should be taken away immediately).

The girl wasn't eating, became too weak to speak, and couldn't walk. When she stopped eating, they used a large syringe to squirt chicken broth into her mouth (and to think...I complained when my parents forced me eat brocolli).

A recent case in Oregon involved a father receiving misdemeanor criminal mistreatment for relying on prayer instead of doctors, and his 15-month-old daughter died of pneumonia and a blood infection. They were initially charged wtih manslaughter.

On a bright note, the idiotic parents that didn't want their kid going through chemo treatments, had a change of heart (maybe God spoke to them and said "Are you insane?)

I wonder in cases like this...if the people stick with their religion. I'd say, if that was a test of my faith, I'd give God the ol' middle finger and move on.

A month or so ago, in Pittsburgh, a 32-year-old woman named Shana Brown was upset she could no longer have children. But she wanted to have a baby with her boyfriend.

So, what would you do? Become another Octomom? Maybe fly to another country and get a kid, like Madonna, Angelina, and Bruno. Oh, so many options.

But the one Shana opted for was, drugging her 13-year-old daughter with drugs and alcohol, so that Shana's 40-year-old boyfriend could impregnate the girl without her knowing (I'm guessing they didn't plan to use the syringe that had something else instead of chicken broth).

The woman turned herself in, and apparently the teenager wasn't raped and didn't get pregnant.

Unfortunately, a girl that has a mom this wacky, will probably get pregnant soon enough.

I'll keep my thoughts to myself on this one.

In my perfect world, all girls would get depo starting at 12 or so, and they wouldn't be allowed to get off it until they proved they were capable of being a good parent. They'd have to take parenting classes, and prove they were in a position financially to support a child. Since I've long thought religiosity and IQ are inversely proportional, I'd like to think anyone retarded enough to deprive their child of medical treatment on religious grounds would never make the cut.

I thought two of Jacksons kids had the same name? Aren't there two that are named Prince?

And, I wonder if the singer Prince, has any kids named Michael (you know, kinda like Kennedy having a driver named Lincoln). Or maybe Prince (a Jehovahha's Witness) has kids that he just named with symbols.

they call Prince Michael II Blanket as a nickname. i heard it was because of the holding him over the railing covered in a blanket incident...idk. poor kids.

July 27, 2009

I heard why they called him Blanket, but it wasn't that. Something to do with the definition of what a blanket is, and blah blah blah. I think it just so happened, that a "blanket" was placed over the child during the balcony incident, because he didn't necessarily want pictures taken of the kid. But some fans were yelling that they wanted to see his baby, so he thought that was a nice compromise.

If he did have various fake noses he attached...well, he better have done it up right. I mean, the fake nose and mustache, with Grouch Marx glasses. The Cyrano nose. Maybe a W.C. Fields. I mean, the possibilities are endless.
