    Why wasn't the mother arrested? She must have been there, allowed it, watched it, right? :confused:

    Everyone in that service is responsible and an accessory to murder.

    They all watched, they all allowed it to happen, NONE of them stopped it (including the grandmother) who seems to be so upset now.

    A little late; wouldn't you say?

    From USA today:

    "Both Lloyd and Allison said Torrance hated being touched, and having people restrain him would likely have caused him a great deal of stress, according to the Journal Sentinel.

    Though autistic individuals display a variety of behaviors and combinations of symptoms, those who have the complex developmental disorder may exhibit a range of characteristics such as apparent over-sensitivity or under-sensitivity to pain.

    With autism, the senses are not integrated so that senses of touch, smell and taste work together to help people understand experiences, according to the Bethesda, Md.-based Autism Society of America."

    This sort of story wouldn't be shocking a 100 years ago.

    I've heard stories before of charismatic churches and families allowing children to die while they tried to heal them. Years ago I heard where they withheld his insilin until he died in a coma.

    I guess the mother failed to read the part of the Bible that says "You shall not test the Lord your God".

    It's one thing to pray for healing. But when the answer to the prayer "Lord, heal him" is "I've given you healing through the miracle of medicine", it's not appropriate to say "no Lord, heal him my way; your way isn't good enough" that's just plain unbiblical.

    I wonder if they believed that mental illness was a sin.

    Edited to say: Duh! I should have read the article more closely!

    Hopefully not for an appointment Artimaeus. That would really ruin any chance for him in court to claim he truly believed in faith healing!

    That is really quite a horrifying thing. It has no bearing though on any other Charasmatic group though. There are plenty of other mainstream churches, even Baptist ones that ask for healing and even do exorcism's.

    Actually, being charismatic has everything to do with it. You don't see that foolishness and ignorance in non-charismatic circles.

    No it doesn't. This foolisness happens in all sectors of society. I read about this happening in a psychologists office a year of so ago in the name of psycology(sp). I will try to find the article.

    I know the example from the non-pentecostal incident you're speaking of.

    Some quack psychology about "rebirthing" and they wrapped up a kid in a blanket and pushed him through his mother's legs. He panicked, threw up and suffocated on his own vomit.

    So there are others besides pentecostals and cults who deny treatment. But this psychology event looked like an accident; the pentecostal thing and the cultic non-treatment of serious illness is premeditated.

    It is truly sad that a family living in the USA in the 21st century could believe in paganism and superstition to the extend that it killed their son.

    This was truly a tragedy that should not have happened. But please don't let this be a reflection on all charismatic churces. I have been to several charismatic churches where this type of thing would have never, ever happened.
