Some lady was telling me about a case where a mother who believed the end was coming on Saturday killed her kids. Apparently she was so terrified that she felt it was better to kill them quickly than it would be to make them suffer because of the Apocalypse.
Now, I was telling my husband the story and he said the guy who started it all is the one who was responsible, and should be charged... And honestly, I kinda agree.
To me this guy is no different than Jim Jones or some other cult leader who lead their "flock" with lies and propaganda... Sure, he didn't tell this woman to kill her kids, but because of the beliefs he preached she felt what she was doing was being merciful. Now, because he was wrong (DUH) she and many like her are dealing with the horrors of the life they still have...
Yes he should be arrested. The problem is that he hasn't done anything illegal. He is smart enough to latch onto the ONLY legal scam. It's just a bit more blood in the long history of Christian bloodshed!
The real shame lies on the shoulders of those who believed him.

Anyone who believed him really has to take responsibility for being so gullible.
That's the problem wiht blind faith, and should be a HUGE lesson in that sense.
