A 10-month-old died after her parents refused to get help for religious reasons

For all those who think it's not harmful to believe in fairy tales, this baby was found dead "... in her crib from malnutrition and dehydration". The father is not just an anti-vaccer, but also believed that it's God's will that the weak should be allowed to die. His behavior is completely consistent with his vocal religious beliefs.

Before someone objects that this is just an insane extreme, let me point out that it's a matter of degree, not kind, that separates this murder from socially acceptable behavior based on one's faith.

Really? Yes. Just one example: my wife's grandmother refused diagnostics or treatment of whatever illness it was that took her life. It was completely socially acceptable to just let her die because of her "Christian Science" faith. We never found out what illness took her ... it could have been something trivial to cure.

Believing in fairy tales is evil. It distorts priorities, causes immoral and irrational behavior and frequently hurts others.

Yes I'm an unapologetically angry atheist. It's not difficult to guess why.
