7 year old girl beaten to death for mispronouncing Bible

Quote:
A Paradise couple accused of beating their 7-year-old adopted daughter to death will be in court this morning for a scheduled preliminary hearing.
Kevin and Elizabeth Schatz face one count of murder, one count of torture and one count of child abuse. The torture count alleges that the parents beat their 11-year-old adopted daughter so severely she ended up in the hospital with kidney failure. The child abuse charge is for bruising authorities reportedly found on the couple's 10-year-old biological son.

The Schatzes are parents to six biological children and three they adopted from Liberia about three years ago. Seven-year-old adopted daughter Lydia died of blunt force trauma in February. According to authorities, she was beaten for several hours with a quarter-inch plumbing supply line as her parents took turns holding her down and using the instrument. The blows reportedly cause Rhabdomyolysis, which is a breakdown of muscle tissue which fatally damaged her vital organs. The 11-year-old was allegedly beaten in a similar manner the previous night.

According to Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, the parents appeared to be following the methods of Michael and Debi Pearl, founders of a controversial fundamentalist religious group, No Greater Joy Ministries.

They also wrote a controversial parenting book "To Train Up a Child." In their literature, the Pearls encourage parents to use a quarter-inch plumbing supply line (or other items like rulers, paddles or tree branches) as a "rod" to "train up" their children. Though they tell parents not to injure their children, they also encourage constant "switching" or "licks" for not only disobedience but also for things like spilling nuts or being foolish. Additional "licks" are recommended when the child cries out.
According to local authorities, Lydia's "biblical chastisement" leading to her death may have been for mispronouncing a word during a home-school reading lesson. The Schatzes entered not guilty pleas to all charges in March. Kevin Schatz will be represented by Defense Attorney Michael Harvey while Elizabeth Schatz will be represented by Defense Attorney Kevin Sears.

The preliminary hearing allows the judge to hear evidence against the defendants from the prosecutors and witnesses as well as arguments and cross examination from the defense attorneys. The judge then determines if the case will proceed to trial. According to Ramsey, however, it appears likely that the preliminary hearing will be waived today and the case will proceed.

Both defendants are being held in the Butte County Jail on bail of $2 million each. Both face two life terms in state prison if convicted.

It's terrible, but oddly enough, that's the kind of stuff that's in the bible/most religion. Your kid gets out of line? Take them to the edge of town and stone them to death.

What can you expect from religion? The answer? This. Well, and two nut jobs trying to raise a kid.

Clearly well deserved. God I love religion. It gives me all the answers to life and all of them are written by such credible people.

















But seriously, all I want is 5 minutes in a cage with the father so I can make him a vegetable and 5 minutes in a bedroom with the bitch so I can choke her to death with my dick.

Pretty sure you'd have to marry her for that...or it'd be against her religion.

This has nothing to do with religion and more to do with two people are clearly clinically insane raising children. But leave it to MC to find any inane story to bash religion.

imagine the fear and horror these kids lived in, day in day out, being homeschooled, they didn't even have the release of interaction with normal people at school.

i wonder how many social workers and adoption staff turned a blind eye to the obvious religious mania here as these people accrued slaves to brainwash and torture. these poor kids are gonna be so ****ed up, the ones that survived anyway.

I guess compared to the No Greater Joy Ministries and the FLDS church, the Westboro Baptists aren't that crazy after all...

They read a book based off religious teaching and used that teaching to "raise" their daughter.

Here's some other things to consider:

Quote:
If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear - Deuteronomy 21:18-21
Quote:
He that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.- Exodus 21:15
Quote:
He that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death. - Exodus 21:17
Quote:
The LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon.... And there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead - Exodus 12:29-30
The bible loves killing children, and when you have sheep animals such as humans believing in it, you should expect this to happen.

I dont believe in the death penalty.. but ******* death penalty!

Cunts like that are not people they are crazed beasts that must be destroyed for the safety and betterment of society.

Honestly, life prisonment is probably the better thing to do and thats fine, but I would not lose sleep if they get a needle in their arm.
