Duh but but..superstition and religion = same thing…
MOSCOW, November 25 (RIA Novosti) – A couple in Russia face jail after their religious zeal compelled them to drive their child, injured in a car crash, to church for an urgent baptism rather than to hospital.
The two-month-old infant was dead by the time it was delivered into the hands of the priest, Fontanka.ru news website said Sunday.
The boy sustained a brain injury in a minor crash in St. Petersburg on Saturday despite being in a child safety seat, the report said.
The worried parents sped him up to the church because “otherwise he would be denied the Kingdom of Heaven,” investigators cited them as saying, Fontanka.ru reported.
Now the two parents, both in their forties, are being investigated for “failure to assist a person in danger,” punishable with up to a year in prison.
City police confirmed the boy’s death, but gave no details.
“This is superstition, not religion,” an Orthodox Church spokesman told Fontanka.ru. “They should have gone to the hospital, it’s only human.”

True believers = True dumbasses!!
Standing in front of his congregation at a small Pentecostal church in Kentucky, Pastor Jamie Coots held the long, sleek body of a poisonous snake, practicing what he considers a holy Christian sacrament, but what others are calling a threat to public safety.
In tiny churches tucked away in rural Appalachia, “snake handling,” which began generations ago as an expression of faith, is turning into a fight over religious freedom.
Coots, the pastor of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name in Middlesboro, Ky., and his followers believe that God calls upon them to handle venomous serpents and to drink other poisons. Even if they are bitten, they will refuse medical treatment because they believe that they are worthy of God’s faith, and that their fate is in God’s hands.
Using serpents during services is a long-standing tradition, one that took root in this region of Appalachia more than a century ago.
Four generations of Coots’ family have handled serpents as Pentecostal preachers, from his grandfather down through his now grown son.
But local authorities see these snakes as a reckless, even dangerous menace to public safety. Religious snake handling has been outlawed in most states, including Kentucky and Tennessee. Several snake-handling practitioners across the country have died after being bitten, and there are concerns about the poisonous snakes being let loose in communities.

An Illinois American Legion post announced last week that it had decided to withhold financial support for the Morton Grove Park District because an atheist park commissioner refused to pledge allegiance to the United States flag “under God.”
At a Thursday park board meeting, Post 134 Commander Joseph Lampert told Commissioner Dan Ashta that Legion members did not “accept” his right not to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance — even though many veterans had died to protect that right.
“On behalf of our post, it is with some regret that we fully respect the right of individuals to not stand during the pledge of allegiance,” Lampert said. “All veterans have been willing to lose their lives for that right, and many have. With that being said, while we support that right, we do not accept it.”
“Regrettably, we will be withholding funds from the park district until such time that everyone rises for the pledge,” he added. “We feel that it’s disrespectful to all veterans that have been willing to sacrifice their lives for this country and it is a great dishonor to all servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and died for this country.”
According to the Morton Grove Champion, Post 134 had paid $300 to sponsor they yearly Easter Extravaganza and $300 for the Halloween Family Festival. In addition, it had spent $1,000 each year on the Party in the Park events and $1,000 on the Fourth of July fireworks.

SALT LAKE CITY — Their billboards have been denied, and now they’re speaking out; the organization American Atheists said they’re frustrated that their billboard ads have been denied in Utah, and they said it’s because of the large Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints presence in the state.
American Atheists wanted to place their ads on billboards throughout Utah to promote their 2014 convention in Salt Lake City. The proposed billboards show students, families, an elderly couple and a woman with text that alludes to the fact that not everyone in Utah is religious and that they could be atheists.
Dan Ellis is the President of Atheists of Utah, which is the local affiliate for American Atheists. He said there is a reason the conference is being held in Utah.
“They’ve chosen Utah because the LDS Church has so much power here, and they’ve never been afraid of going into the belly of the beast and standing up for what is right and standing up for human rights,” he said.
Ellis tells FOX 13 News that companies like YESCO and Reagan Outdoor have refused to do business with them because, he claims, they’re scared of the LDS Church.
“That’s really sad that in Utah even just saying that you’re an atheist could be deemed offensive by somebody,” he said.
