We recently posted about the Pennsylvania creationist parents, Herbert and Catherine Schaible, who prayed instead of calling the doctor, and watched as their son died of pneumonia (see Creationist Faith-Killing Parents to be Sentenced). After they were convicted of involuntary manslaughter, a judge let them off with probation.
It is our delight to link to this video of what we saw on Fox News yesterday. Megyn Kelly — she is gorgeous! — agrees with your humble Curmudgeon that the sentence was a travesty. It’s good to know that not everyone on Fox is a creationist lunatic.
Here it is: Parents Refuse Medicine to Sick Child. It’s only a few minutes long.
