All comments about religion will reveal your personal bias.  The biatch was just plain crazy.  If has had said the moon made her do it, would we question whether the moon was bad for us?

Unpossible!

There were 2 of them, probably met in a NAMI group.

Weird, there's no mention of which religion these people believed themselves yo be practicing. I suspect if it had been - Zoroastrianism, or Satanism say - it would have been in the lede.

Children ARE evil.  I am surprised more parents do not follow this lead.

Hero tag should have been used.  Haters are going to blast me, but this lady, like Susan Smith before her were wise in how to handle worthless crotch spawn.

(No WIC, quieter restaurants and less crowding in our schools - it is a win all around)

The moon doesn't actively encourage this behavior.  Some religious sects do.

Religion is a mental illness. Religious people believe in angels, demons, and  miracles. They believe that they can speak in unknown languages, that magical wishes (AKA prayer)  can affect their circumstances, that the smallest coincidences in their everyday lives are the deliberate acts of an invisible entity that governs every aspect of their lives.

While it is true that religion was the medium, it's even more true that there are billions of people who manage to avoid killing their children because of it.

So:  Yes, biatch be crazy.

If you can fix that in the USA, then you can probably pass out AK-47's on every corner to everyone that walks by and the only related deaths will be cleaning accidents.

But fixing how we treat mental illness in this country will make fixing the healthcare industry seem like a nice relaxing sunday drive.

That makes for a couple of kidnappings and these two murders over the last year because of exorcisms, I don't recall any because of the moon.

Yes biatches be crazy but religion encouraged the crazy rather than suggesting maybe some counseling and medication for it. My otherwise totally sane mother was worried about me "inviting evil spirits to take over [my] body" by using a Ouija board I bought in high school to use for laughs with my stoner buddies. She was intelligent and college educated, ran the family business and was the director of religious education program for a 2000 member catholic church.

Religion convinced her evil faries could control me. That's how stupid religion makes you.

So if I buy my menus a collar I can legally tie someone down to a bed naked and work the evil spirits out of them? I gotta try this, maybe a little side business.

Of course not. The moon is only bad when it's in the third house of Capricorn.

My mother was (and probably still is) a born again evangelical. She burned Beatles records and blessed my bedroom with holy water on a regular basis. She used to corner me when I got home and rub some holy water on my forehead in an effort to release the demons.

She got these ideas from the church she dragged me to and the radio programs she listened to. So don't tell me religion played no part in this. As soon as you start believing in things without proof it becomes so much easier to convince you to do anything based on those beliefs.

Idiots who believe in demons are on par if not worse than flat earthers.

Um, the vast majority of people who need NAMI would never even come close to doing anything like this, but thanks for contributing to the negative image mental illness has so organizations like NAMI never have enough funding.

Doing it wrong.

All Catholic and Anglican baptisms include an Exorcism Lite at no charge. That's just the top of the list, Google it out. Very few children are injured at that time. Most damage is to the priest with dealing with a pre-housebroken and dripping or nauseated squirmy consumer auditioning for soloist in the choir.

But religion does give crazies something to hide behind and not get the treatment they need. If a person says they are talking with the moon it would raise flags. Person says they talk with god every night, and we just say they are a good christian.

Actually no it isn't, if she weren't in whatever religion she is in this would never have come up, exorcism is a religious practice! Comment fail.
