Is Prayer Reckless Homicide?

WESTON, Wis. (AP) — Two parents who prayed as their 11-year-old daughter died of untreated diabetes were charged Monday with second-degree reckless homicide.
In this case... it certainly is. Sure these may just be my simple opinions... but inaction is just as bad as doing the wrong action. There was a bit of both here.

As a part of the general non-diabetic public... this makes me sick.

As a part of the online diabetes community... this makes me sick.

Even as a follower of Christ... this makes me sick.

It's one thing to simply have faith, but I also believe God gives us very practical means as an answer to our prayers... insulin.

There is no cure for diabetes yet...

One day there may be....

But until then... Parents please use the medical resources you have access to TODAY.

It makes me sick too, even as a Christian. I totally agree that having faith is one thing, and well, but being practical is just as important. I believe God gave us the gift of intellect and logic for a reason!

This was a very sad, very twisted story. I'm a woman of faith, too but honestly...what kind of faith do you have when you watch your own child die??

They were charged with 2nd degree reckless homicide yesterday. Now will they learn from this mistake that God puts us all here to help one another? Who knows...sad thing is, nothing will bring that poor, innocent little girl back.
