  • They hav not said what motivated her, but it seems from what I am ready she might have been seeking out fame and to promote/show off her faith.

  • Sounds like she is severely mentally ill. I hope she gets the help she needs. Who are we to judge?

  • Not trying to judge, just very curious as to what woud drive someone to do something so painful to themselves. I have a special place in my heart for people going through life altering mental pain, and some times you see something that just makes you wonder why.

  • It's sad isn't it? I feel bad for her, but it kind of makes me angry because it reminds me of the runaway bride that cost the country all that money.... She should be fined.

    Religious zealotry. She was doing this so she'd have a platform to tell people about Jesus.
