I'm not understanding this at all. What school does she go to? The only thing that explains this story in any way is the 'Florida' tag, and that just means it's basically unexplainable.

I could understand one crazy dick saying that, or maybe even two. But to say that you're the most hated person in school is a pretty lofty claim. Her tumblr doesn't even go anywhere, unless she just deleted it.

TL/DR: I'm calling bullshiat on everything past 'glass eye'

/Still hope she pulls through 100%

I'm calling bullshiat too. I grew up in a very conservative area in Florida and sure the religious kids were weird, but c'mon. I've never heard of anything like that. She sounds crazy.

Maybe she's a real coont, and the kids' insults just naturally gravitate to what hurts her the most.

Also, the link doesn't work anymore, so maybe it WAS all bullshiat.

If the Daily Mail pulled articles that turned out to be bullshiat, it wouldn't have any left.  My money's on "the article left them open to legal action".

If God answers prayers, why has He never, ever not once ever in human history cured an amputee?

Agreed.  They never list the city or the high school.  They cite Opposing Views, who also doesn't mention a city or high school, citing "The Friendly Atheist" blog who--get this--doesn't name a city or high school.

ARTICLE:

She calls herself the 'one-eyed wonder' and, despite serious vision impairments, has managed to become the captain of her high school volleyball team.
But 17-year-old student Emily Monroe - who has suffered from retinal cancer since childhood and was recently told she had six to eight months to live following the discovery of a new tumor - says she is constantly 'threatened' and 'beaten down' by classmates, who say her glass eye is 'a slap in the face of God', according to
The Florida teen, who blogs about her condition, has twice beat the cancer, however it has now reappeared for the third time.
Monroe was five when she was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma, a fast-developing type of cancer that forms in the retina, usually in young children.

i.dailymail.co.uk

'I'm proud of what I've achieved': Emily Monroe, 17, says she is bullied at her high school for having a glass eye due to retinal cancer and is told that it 'goes against God's plan'. The defiant teen blogs about her condition to raise awareness. In October doctors told her she had '6-8 months to live'


Her left eye was removed as a result and replaced with a glass eye, which appears bigger than her actual eye.
'This is quite noticeable to some people but to others, not as much,' Monroe wrote on her
'I've gotten much hate from my eye about how it is "a slap in the face to God".
'I will never disrespect someone's religion so please don't use your religion to attack someone.'
During her sophomore year, an MRI scan showed a mass had developed behind the glass eye.
Following radiation therapy, doctors decided to complete hollow out the eye socket to remove any tumors.
While the surgery was successful, the radiation affected Monroe's stomach, causing her to lose her appetite.
She was prescribed a drug called Megase, which is a form of liquid marijuana, to help her regain her appetite.
'I missed most of that year in school but I still managed to be the captain of my volleyball team despite not having any depth perception whatsoever,' she wrote.

More...
However she says she is routinely taunted by a group of about two dozen students.
'They said god wanted me dead and that's why I've gotten cancer (now) three times,' she wrote online.
'So my eye is a 'trophy' to brag about how I farked up God's plan.'
'I deal with being the most hated person in school daily because my glass eye is a "slap in the face to God".
'I'm not well liked. I'm threatened, beaten down and much worse but all in all, I'M OK.'
Sadly, doctors have discovered another mass, this time behind her right eye, which means she can't have surgery.
Monroe started radiation again on October 19, however she says her 'body isn't fighting the cancer'.
'When the results came back I was given 6-8 months,' she posted on her blog.
'This isn't definite, but it's probable.
'Radiation isn't working anymore.
'My body gave up.'
However, despite the diagnosis and torment from her peers, Monroe remains strong an optimistic, saying she won't give up the fight.
'I am proud of myself for all I've accomplished,' she said.
'I've kicked cancers ass twice and I'm going for a third.'

AND FROM THE OPPOSING VIEWS SOURCE (FRIENDLY ATHEIST):

***UPDATE, Friday, 2:00p EST***
: I've just received a concerning e-mail about the sourcing for this story. I'm making additional calls to try to unravel what, if anything, went wrong. Stay tuned for more.

Hahaha and the very Weeners on Opposing Views:

The tumblr page was an identity thief stealing the persona of a cancer survivor (who has not gone into remission and is now in very fine health) in order to drum up sympathy to scam for donations. The tumblr's been taken down, the kickstarter page has been taken down, and the family of the actual Emily (not Monroe) in these photos is taking legal action. Any source that covers this story is losing credibility. It's false. There is no bullying. There is no Emma Monroe.

Replacing a Daily Fail link with an Opposing Views link means that nothing of value is gained OR lost.
 
2013-11-22 09:19:05 PM
"According to The Friendly Atheist blog, fellow students have told Emily that God wanted her to die, and that's why her cancer has kept returning."

Now that is some straight up, unadulterated, teenage-atheism right there.

Evidently someone made up a story using Emily Pickett's photos.
But, this will run the internet and folks will quote it as fact for 20 years.

I guess someone was bored and decided to stir up some Christian controversy.

It's obviously fake because (FTFA) As for her own beliefs? "I'm agnostic I guess," said Emily. "I believe there's something out there but idk what." no one speaks like this during an interview. Not a serious interview anyway.
 
2013-11-22 09:22:40 PM
Eventually, all but the stupidest of her antagonists will realize  what awful buttholes  they they were to this innocent girl, and I hope she is still around so that they can beg forgiveness.

So what you're saying is the bullying has reached its final form. There is no Emma to bully because Emma doesn't even exist. She's lost in time, never to be remembered.

Solid Muldoon: god does restore amputated finger tips for young children, and sometimes for adults who know the right scientists. Also god cures cancer (called spontaneous remission). You could also think this is because evolution provides the body with huge healing abilities if you're more into reason, or, if you don't want god but do want the same amount of derp, because you ate all natural plants mother earth provides in far away places that science refuses to acknowledge.

"fellow students have told Emily that God wanted her to die "

I so want this to be Not True, but sadly, fundies like those really do exist. They're out there, their faces remaining unpunched and their scrotums not kicked into their pelvis.
