Beagley Trial

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

This is that trial where the parents wouldn't take their son to be treated by doctors and he died.

Doesn't this go against freedom of religion? I suppose when it's considered "negligence," it's a different case.
Personally, I would not have let my child suffer that way. But this boy had been taught that God would take care of everything, which is probably why he didn't ask to be treated either. I certainly have taken up a lot of beliefs that I was taught and will teach those to my son. I've already had some of them questioned by others. So when did society decide they know what's best in raising our children?
