Posted in atheism, history, literature, religion with tags , , on 24 June 2011 8:40 pm by Alice

I’m still sorting through the google cache of the old blog, most of it is just news tidbits, some of which I added to Religion Harms, most of it is random nonsense (which isn’t particularly surprising), but there are some personal reflections that I wanted to hold on to.

Finals all done, and I’m done with school til September. Should have grades within the week, I’ll let you know.

I changed some structural things, added a Book List (copying off Daz), added a Flickr photostream (copying off Amy), put in a little blurb that says what book I’m reading now, and added some links to the Religion Harms page that I didn’t have time to blog about, and messed with the header image a bit (though I’m still not pleased with it).

Couple sentenced for ‘religious’ beating death and torture of children

Authorities said the couple used a quarter-inch plumber’s supply line during a “biblical chastisement” that went too far, resulting in medical complications that caused the death Feb. 5 of 7-year-old Lydia Schatz and left her sister, Zariah, 11, hospitalized with serious injuries.

The ones where children die, or end up in the hospital, are the ones that both make me the maddest, and break my heart at the same time.

[Thanks to Daz for bringing this one to my attention.]
