Madeline "Kara" Neumann, 11, died last Sunday from an undiagnosed but treatable form of diabetes as her parents prayed for her to get better.
Her mother said she never expected her daughter to die.
No of course not. Leilani expected god to heal Kara. So she got down on her knees and prayed,
we beseech you
stretch forth your mighty hand
and heal Kara, our beloved daughter.
But Kara was unworthy and Apollo turned his face from her. For her life was not worth sparing. The mouth of Hades was hungry for another soul and little Kara now wanders the fields of Elysium alone.
Everest, Wisconsin Metro Police Chief Dan Vergin (in the role of Pontius Pilate washing his hands) decided to leave the decision on whether or not to press charges against the parents up to the district attorney. After all, there was no intent to harm the child. "They didn't want their child to die. They thought what they were doing was the right thing. They believed up to the time she stopped breathing she was going to get better. They just thought it was a spiritual attack. They believed if they prayed enough she would get through it."
Kara's three siblings have been removed from the care of these good christian parents while the secular police force investigate their biblically proper, godly behavior.
Prayed to Death
by her own parents.
May she rest in peace.
