Damn, I feel so sad for that kid, and it could have been avoided. Excusing logic for personal beliefs, oh that'd save your son.

Parents; "God, why did you not save our son??"

God; "Are you fucking kidding me, I put a hospital 5 minutes away from your home... With great doctors and nurses... what more do you need?!"

Just saying, what if there is a god. And his intention is to cure us and look after us with modern medicine... Why does everyone assume he would want things to stay the same as they were 2000 years ago??

People. Died. Because. Of. This.

Thats the fucking point, don't defend people who murdered their own child.

Even if you take religion out of it its still worth putting these asshles down.

Oh my god.. I feel so bad for the kid. I can just imagine him laying there in agony pleading for his parents to help him, call an ambulance or something and they just sit there praying while he slowly splutters himself to death :'(

Now i'm sad. :(

I know how an infected appendix feels, it's terribly horrible I couldn't last a day with the pain until I was sent to the hospital, I feel pretty bad for this kid for having such fuckwits as parents.
