Parents Accused of Killing Daughter By Making Her Drink Too Much Soda

Parents Accused of Killing Daughter By Making Her Drink Too Much Soda

A lot of Christians like to pat people on the head who reproduce… even though the New Testament took away the “be fruitful and multiply” commandment, nullified it, if you will, to make child bearing a choice, not a requirement.

After Christ, a woman’s value was no longer in being an incubator for babies, as in ancient, (Old Testament) middle east culture, but her value now resides in Christ, if she accepted Christ.

Even for Christians who think it’s somewhat a biblical duty or commendable for people to pop out a kid, consider that some parents murder their children. They pop a kid out only to kill it later, so they’ve not really added a person to the human race – well, they did, but then removed the person.

I don’t know why Christians persist in holding up this idea that parenting makes people more godly and mature when we see so many stories of parents who exploit, rape, or murder their own children.

    A Tennessee couple pleaded not guilty Friday to murder and child abuse charges for allegedly intoxicating their 5-year-old daughter by having her chug more than two liters of water and grape soda, leading to her death.

    Randall Lee Vaughn, 41, and Mary Vaughn, 58, of Surgoinsville were arrested this week after a two-year investigation into the death of the man’s daughter and his wife’s stepdaughter.

    The Hawkins County Sheriff’s Department said the parents drove an unresponsive and discolored Alexa Linboom to the emergency room Jan. 1, 2012. She died two days later because of “acute fluid/water intoxication.” It caused her sodium level to drop, swelling the brain with water and severely damaging it. The death was eventually ruled a homicide.

All right, way to go dad! Sounds completely rational to me: kill your kids because you lacked car seats! That is some solid reasoning right there – you don’t have car seats, so you obviously can’t let your kids live.

Boy, men who are married and who are fathers are just so much more ethical, godly, mature, law abiding, and compassionate than you selfish rat bastard men who don’t marry and crank out babies!

    HE SAID he slashed his two baby girls to death because he’d just killed their mother – and he didn’t have car seats to take them with him to Mexico, outraged officials revealed as craven New York dad Miguel Mejia-Ramos was arraigned on murder charges Friday.

    Hauled back to New York from the Mexican border, Mejia-Ramos, 28, was expressionless as a judge ordered him held with no bail for allegedly slaughtering his wife, Deisy, 21, and daughters Daniela, 3, and Yoselin, 1, during a jealousy-fuelled, five-knife rampage, The New York Post reports.

    “I was going to take them with me, but I didn’t have car seats,” the monster told cops, according to a confession released Friday.

    Mejia-Ramos admitted that he killed Deisy and then the girls in their Jamaica bedroom after searching his wife’s phone and finding pictures of her with another man, officials said.
    He grabbed several knives from a butcher block and stood over Deisy as she slept with one daughter on either side, according to the confession.

    “Deisy wakes up and screams. He drops one knife on the bed. He stabs her, she runs to the front of the bedroom, and he stabs her with another knife which he says he twists in her side and it breaks,” the confession reads.

Self Professing Christian Guy, Closeted Homosexual, Apparently Killed His Wife (or had her killed) – Also: Christian Group IHOP Sexualizes Jesus Christ and God

Christian Guy, Closeted Homosexual, Apparently Killed His Wife (or had her killed)

Another splendid example of why Christian single women are just as well off dating and marrying Non Christians guys as they are Christian males.

    Disclaimer: I am not suggesting by posting such stories that ALL Christian males are closeted homosexuals, abusive, killers, perverts, crack pots, or weirdos, but enough of them are in the news stories I see to have convinced me by now that Non Christian males are no more a risk to date or marry.

Found via “Stuff Christian Culture Likes” Facebook group:

(Link): Love and Death In the House of Prayer

    Tyler Deaton, a self-appointed apostle in one of the fastest-growing evangelical movements, loved Jesus, Harry Potter and, much to his dismay, other men. When his wife turned up dead, the secrets began to spill out

According to this article from Rolling Stone, Deaton became a member of something called IHOP (International House of Prayer) founded by another guy who sounds equally crack-potish, Bickle. The article described some of the group’s beliefs – many of which are nutty and have zero biblical support.

The following is from page two, referring to the girl (Bethany) who this Tyler person later married and, according to the article, either killed or had killed:

    She [Bethany] could also be lavishly, almost immoderately romantic. She imagined herself as a novelist and professor at a small university, living in a cottage in the woods. “The dream of her heart was to be married,” Herrington recalls. “We used to stay up late talking about it, night after night. She had been praying for her husband since she was a teenager. She had written him letters, before they even met.” She found herself “fiercely attracted” to Deaton and was convinced that God had ordained their union. She was aware of his struggles with homosexuality but believed that God would use her to heal his heart.

There you have it, Christian ladies: you can pray and rely on God to send you a spouse – as so many Christian leaders, dating books, and preachers advise – and end up marrying an apparently violent, psychotic, closeted homosexual, instead of the hetero, Christian White Knight on a Steed you were hoping for and expecting.

One wonders why God, if he exists, would allow a Christian young woman, who was trusting him in this area of her life, (and as Christian girls are heavily encouraged to do by leaders and parents), only for God to let her down in such a spectacular fashion?

The founder of the IHOP group to which Deaton belonged appears to have sexualized Jesus Christ, and the relationships Christians have with him, though he claims this is not so:

    Published January 19, 2014

    Police in Maryland have charged two women with murder in the deaths of two children who were killed during an apparent exorcism attempt.

    Montgomery County Police have charged 28-year-old Zakieya Latrice Avery and 21-year-old Monifa Denise Sanford with two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder in the deaths of two of Avery’s children, 1-year-old Norell Harris, and 2-year-old Zyana Harris.

    Avery’s other two children, identified as 5-year-old Taniya Harris and 8-year-old Martello Harris, remained hospitalized Saturday. Their condition was not immediately known.

    Police say the two younger children who died suffered multiple stab wounds, but did not reveal any more information about the exorcism attempt, citing the ongoing investigation.

Motherhood is just SO rewarding for women and God’s only calling for the them, that it makes them blow their heads off and kill their own daughters. Color me relieved for never having had children, then.

Excerpts:

    A Utah mom described by pals as positive and caring shot and killed her two young daughters before turning the gun on herself the same day her fiance packed up his belongings and moved out of her house, authorities said.

    Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva, 32, killed her pretty blonde daughters, Kenadee Oliva, 13, and Isabella Oliva, 7, Tuesday evening in their home in Syracuse, a town on the Great Salt Lake about 25 miles north of Salt Lake City.

    Cops didn’t name the fiance, but said they had been to the home before on domestic calls.

    “We were there the night before,” a police spokesman said. “There was a civil issue. They had a fight and he came to pick up his property.” Neighbors said they saw the man loading boxes into a U-Haul truck earlier Tuesday.

    … The killings came only a day after a distraught Florida mom (Link): fatally shot her two teenage children before turning the weapon on herself in another tragic murder suicide.

Preacher Found Guilty of Murdering His Second Wife, Probably Killed The First One, He Had Affair With Vulnerable, Grieving Woman at His Church

Preacher Found Guilty of Murdering His Second Wife, Probably Killed The First One, He Had Affair With Vulnerable, Grieving Woman at His Church

Not only did this guy murder his second wife (and apparently his first one), but a few sources says he started an affair with a grieving widow in his church. An all around stand up classy guy.

And married people are morally superior to single people. Don’t forget that, now. Evangelicals and Baptists believe that singles are randy rabbits that hump everything in sight and are not as mature as married couples.

I also wonder how sicko freaks like this guy – who manipulate emotionally wounded women for sex, who murder two wives – get spouses, while the decent, normal people of the world go single.

    By Andrew Scott
    Pocono Record Writer
    January 04, 2014

    “Death At The Parsonage,” a look at former Jackson Township pastor Arthur Schirmer — awaiting trial in his first wife’s death after being convicted of murdering his second wife — will air on CBS News’ “48 Hours” at 10 tonight.

    Schirmer was pastor at Reeders United Methodist Church in Jackson Township in 2008 when second wife Betty Jean Schirmer died from a head injury her husband said she had suffered in a crash.

    Arthur Schirmer said he was driving Betty Jean to the hospital, after she had complained of jaw pain, and that their vehicle crashed into the guard rail after he swerved to avoid a deer on Route 715 in Pocono Township.

    In October 2008, three months after Betty Jean’s death, police investigated Joseph Musante’s gunshot suicide in Schirmer’s church office and learned Musante’s wife, Cynthia Musante, had been involved in an extramarital affair with Arthur Schirmer.

Christian Mother Who Loved To Cheerfully Quote Bible Verses Kicked Her Small Son To Death – Motherhood does not make women more godly / mature / loving

Christian Mother (Synthia Varela-Casaus) Who Loved To Cheerfully Quote Bible Verses Kicked Her Small Son To Death – Motherhood does not make women more godly / mature / loving

Disclaimer and reminder. I’m sure there are parents out there who bill themselves as atheist who rape, abuse, or murder their children, but I would not deduce from that fact ALL atheists do that, or that ALL atheists would endorse such behavior. It’s up for debate, I suppose, if atheism is the root cause behind such action.

So bear in mind when I post these “Christians abuse their kids” news stories, I am doing so not to depict ALL Christians as violent, abusive wackos, but only to point out that being a parent, contra to Christian claims, does not make a person more mature or godly than being childfree or childless.

(I mention this because I have so far seen a few atheists link to this story with glee, as though they seriously think this is some kind of evidence in their minds that Christianity is absolute bunk.
Case in point: the very, very bitter atheist person who is behind this blog: “Gawd Strength” – his post on this story comes complete with the standard bitter atheistic pulled out of context Old Testament law about parenting.)

    An Albuquerque mother is facing child abuse charges in the death of her young son.

    Officer Simon Drobik says police were called to a home in the city’s northeast heights Friday night after getting a 911 call from the mother, 38-year-old Synthia Varela-Casaus.

    She initially told police her 9-year-old son was playing with his 3-year-old brother when the older brother was thrown from a bouncing toy horse and hit his head.

    The boy was pronounced dead after being taken to an Albuquerque hospital.

    Medical personnel saw multiple injuries on the boy’s body. Drobik says the mother later told detectives she kicked the boy in the stomach during an argument, causing him to hit his head.

    The mother told detectives she repeatedly kicked the boy while he was on the floor.

    Not unlike Ariel Castro, Varela-Casaus delighted in updating her Facebook page with sugary sentiments about God’s benevolence. In the days before Omaree’s death, she took to Facebook to ask Jesus to “please put a hedge of protection over all the children in the world,” and she called her three own children “precious angels”:

Interesting (and Disturbing) Editorial On How Males Outnumbering Females Leads to More Violence Against Women etc

(Link): India Is Sitting on a Time-Bomb of Violence Against Women

    This piece first appeared on newstatesman.com.

BY SUNNY HUNDAL

Imagine a world where the proportion of girls being born is so low that large proportions of males just cannot find partners when they come of age. In such a world they are more likely to congregate in gangs for company. In turn, that means they are more likely to engage in risky behaviour: i.e. commit crime, do drugs and engage in violence against women. In gangs, men are more likely to harass women and even commit rape.

But this isn’t some dystopian fantasy – there are 37 million more men than women in India, and most of them are of marriageable age given the relatively young population. A social time-bomb is now setting off there with terrifying consequences.

While researching for my e-book on violence against women in India, earlier this year I came across an extraordinary article on why some brothers living in the same household were sharing a wife rather than marrying separate women.

Let that sink in for a moment. The Times of India reported in 2005 on instances where between two and five brothers living in a house, in rural areas in the state of Punjab, had married the same woman. It was extraordinary not just for what was in it, but for what was left out.

Marriage Does Not Make People More Loving Mature Godly Ethical Caring or Responsible (One Stop Thread)

The following are links to many (but not all) posts on this blog about news reports about sins and crimes committed by MARRIED people.

Not only do these news reports dispell the Christian myth that married people are more godly, mature, responsible, or sexually pure than singles, but…

These links also demonstrate that married sex is not as great Christians say it is, which they say to entice kids into staying virgins until marriage.

If married sex were as wonderful as Christians claim, we would not see all these reports of married Christian men (or women) using porn, having affairs, or hiring prostitutes.

Some of these married people featured in the news reports below might also be PARENTS and CHRISTIAN.

Mother charged in killing, dumping baby in recycling bin

Woman Murders Infant, Tosses It Into Trash

Um, yeah. Christians keep saying (or assuming) that parenthood equates to instant maturity and godliness, but this woman killed her baby and tossed it into the trash. This also works against the notion of gender complementarians that a woman’s only or greatest calling in life is to be a mother. Clearly, some women are not cut out to be mothers.

(Link): Mother charged in killing, dumping baby in recycling bin

    The newborn boy’s body was found Nov. 12 at a recycling plant hours after his death.

    SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. — A woman charged with murdering her newborn son confessed, police say, telling them she didn’t want the baby and hid the pregnancy from her relatives and housemates.

    Maria Oliva Guaman-Guaman, 23, is being held without bail in Rockland County jail after being arraigned Tuesday in Spring Valley Justice Court on a charge of second-degree murder, accused of strangling her infant and leaving his body in a recycling bin in the New York suburbs.

    … “There were tears, but I can’t really say she was remorseful,” Modica said of the mother. “She told the investigator she didn’t want the child, and later on she said, ‘I can’t afford another child.'”

    … The infant, whom police dubbed Baby Angel, was found hours later Nov. 12 at Brookfield Recycling in Elmsford, N.Y. The baby’s umbilical cord was still attached, leading police to believe he was killed shortly after his birth.

    … Police believe the baby was both born and killed at Guaman-Guaman’s home, about 30 miles north of New York City.
