"Revealed" Religions Are Killing Children

All nine innocent children pictured below are victims of religious superstition. All nine children died because their parents believed the Bible is the Word of God, and did not realize that God gave us reason and not religion. To truly believe the Bible is the Word of God, you must believe its teachings promoting the deadly superstition of faith-healing are from God and should be followed as the Bible instructs. As you read this page, keep in mind that all of these beautiful and wonderful children would still be alive today if God-given reason-based Deism had replaced the "revealed" religions.

The first little child, who is pictured at left, is Harrison Johnson. In September of 1998 he was stung by over 430 yellow-jackets. His parents are Christians who believe in Bible-based "faith-healing" so they prayed for him for seven hours before calling for medical help. Harrison died. The actions of his parents are perfectly legal in the state of Florida, where this tragedy took place. This murderous behavior is also legal in 45 other states in the 50 United States. The only states that are rational, caring and progressive enough to not permit the killing of innocent children for religious "reasons" are Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts and South Dakota.

The second child, pictured at left, is Amy Hermanson from Sarasota, Florida. She had diabetes. She also had Christian Science parents. The two don't mix and Amy lost. Amy was visibly sick for a period of four weeks. As many people do, who believe in the hocus pocus of faith-healing, Amy's mother was pretending everything was alright. She took Amy to visit a neighbor who encouraged her to take Amy to a doctor. She refused. A few minutes latter Amy crawled into the room begging her mother to take her home. Amy died a few days latter.

The third innocent child victim of "revealed" religion is of Ian Lundman, pictured at left, from Minnesota. He also suffered from both diabetes and Christian Science parents. Minnesota is one of the 46 backward states stepped in superstition where it's perfectly legal to kill kids if your religious beliefs embrace faith-healing. Ian exhibited all the signs and warnings of diabetes: frequent urination, vomiting and labored breathing. His custodial mother did nothing but hire a Christian Science practitioner and Christian Science nurse. Since they believe in the deadly superstition of faith-healing they offered no medical help. Ian became yet another victim of "revealed" religion.

The fourth child pictured at left is in his casket. He is Caleb Tribble who was a casualty of "revealed" religion/nonsense. Caleb lived his very short life in New Zealand. He was only four months old when faith healing took his priceless life. Caleb's sad case demonstrates that the mental illness of "revealed" religion knows no boundaries. Deists and other people of reason need to work together across all boundaries in order to protect the innocent children from these irreversible and unnecessary catastrophes brought on by the superstitious and their "revealed" religions.

The fifth child pictured at left is David Hickman. David was born two months premature. Pediatricians have testified that he would have survived if his parents had taken him to the hospital instead of merely praying for him. David was killed by the religious and Bible-based faith healing superstition just nine hours after he was born.
