← Jury gives "faith healing" mother prison time in son's death

She'll have to spend the rest of her life coming to terms with the knowledge that because of her misplaced faith and her own foolishness, she'll never get to see her son grow up; never get to hold the grandchildren he would have given her.

If that ever happened, that would be a true miracle. Most religious people will cling to their beliefs and explain this death by saying "God works in mysterious ways" or "God loved the child so much that he took him away to be with Him" or some other rubbish. Religion causes such brain atrophy that it becomes a useless organ, like the appendix.
