Be warned, this article is NOT for the more sensitive of our ranks. It is, without a doubt, an example of what is WRONG with the world. Read at your own risk.

If you chose to read it, what are your thought? Personally, I had the sudden urge to go get some target practice in.

I am so outraged, I am having a very hard time putting my sadness into words. I only hope the justice system will prevail and they will be held accountable for this travesty. Also, I will pray, pray, pray, and pray some more for all of them. Especially the boy, who sounded like a wonderful little guy. In my heart, I know I am supposed to not judge them, but, I can not fathom what they must have been thinking. Including the lady upstairs. I can't believe she saw all that stuff and just let it happen. And the mother. That was nuts!

God doesn't make mistakes. We are who we are, so why couldn't they just love him?

IT makes me sad beyond words.

I have known many mom's with children with autism who wanted a cure so badly that they would try about anything. I think that the church really caught her when she was weak. I want to say that as a mom she was trying to do what she was told was best. It is hard to say or put myself in her shoes. I have never been in a position to have to consider putting my child in residential care while being single, on welfare with a smaller child. I don't think what she did was right at all, but I do feel for her and her confusion of what to do.

THAT CHURCH ON THE OTHER HAND!!!!!!!!

Now I am a religous person and it is my belief that we take care of those who are in need (we call it coporal works of mercy) and god makes everyone special. I don't beleive God wants us to beat them into being something else or "cured". HE DID NOT make a mistake with that boy being autistic, he actually sounded like a wonderful little boy. Beating the boy would NOT cure his autism. The fact that they did this so many times angers me to NO end. Yep target practice sounds pretty damn good to me.

ARGH.

I can't even get all my thoughts out.
