Fundie Couple Accused in Plot to Sacrifice Kids
A woman and her boyfriend are accused of plotting to sacrifice the woman's three children on a church altar.

Nicole Mancini, 29, and John Thurber, 35, were arrested at St. Mary's Church on Wednesday after workers said they heard the woman say she wanted to sacrifice the boys.

"We could tell this woman was not right," said church secretary Donna Landolfi. "She said, 'Let's go make the sacrifice.'"

Mancini and Thurber were in jail Saturday on more than $25,000 bail. They were arraigned Friday on three counts each of misdemeanor child endangerment. Thurber was also charged with marijuana possession.

The children, ages 9, 7 and 2, were not harmed and were placed in state custody. Police said Thurber is the father of the youngest boy.

Police said Mancini told them that Jesus sacrificed himself for her, so she was going to sacrifice the boys to free her soul.

3. But hasn't this been done in Bible stories?
I think these are interesting times indeed. They will surely use the religion card.

I hope this story gets followed up.

That woman should not be allowed to roam free until she does some serious jail time and gets some serious psychiatric help.

6. Would a conservative judge...
allow them to be found guilty? I don't think so.

7. We need to get Air America to air this kind of thing so that the
right-wingers realize who they have among their midst. Same concept as when FoxNews would put some severe looking people on to represent Liberals, while their conservative opponents were clean-shaven.
