Parents prayed for two hours before calling EMS after they found son not breathing, murder trial told

Posted by doctore0 on June 3, 2016

Nothing fails like prayers, cause of death = religion

After returning from church to find their son not breathing, the parents of Calgary teenager Alexandru Radita prayed for two hours before calling emergency services, court heard Wednesday.

Shauna Mitchell, an investigator with the Medical Examiner’s office, said she was dispatched to the Citadel Drive N.W. home of Emil and Rodica Radita to look into a sudden death.

She said she asked the couple when they had last seen their son alive.

“They said they went to church at, I think it was after 1800 hours, and they came home at about 2000 hours and that’s when the father said that he wasn’t breathing, so they prayed and they didn’t call EMS until sometime around 2200 hours,” Mitchell said.

She told Crown prosecutor Marta Juzwiak there were multiple members of the couple’s church in the home.

“They were in the home praying together,” Mitchell said.

And she said it was possible the boy wasn’t breathing even before the couple went to church, as she was given conflicting reports from them.

She said the mother said Alexandru was breathing at 6 p.m. that day, but his father said he wasn’t.

Witchcraft and exorcism abuse rising in UK

Posted by doctore0 on October 12, 2015


Child abuse linked to exorcism and witchcraft accusations is on the rise, figures obtained by the BBC suggest.

The Metropolitan Police said there had been 60 crimes linked to faith in London so far this year. It saw reports double from 23 in 2013 to 46 in 2014.

Half of UK police forces do not record such cases and many local authorities are also unable to provide figures.

The NSPCC said authorities “need to ensure they are able to spot the signs of this particular brand of abuse”.

London is unique in having a police team, Project Violet, dedicated to this type of abuse.

Its figures relate to crime reports where officers have flagged a case as involving abuse linked to faith or belief. Many of the cases involve children

Saudi Arabia Teenager sentenced to death by crucifixion

Posted by doctore0 on September 21, 2015

Religion of peace…

A teenager arrested for taking part in an anti-government protest in Saudi Arabia is set to be crucified and beheaded after his appeal was dismissed.

Ali Mohammed al-Nimr was arrested in 2012 aged 17 and was also accused of illegally possessing firearms, a charge he strongly denies.

Critics say he is innocent and is being punished because his uncle is a prominent religious leader and human rights activist, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr – who was also sentenced to death in 2014.

Local reports in Moroccan say the woman was ‘possessed by Satan’, and it was decided the best way to deal with the problem was to yell religious passages at her while hitting her with the sticks.

A report by the Morocco World News said the woman’s relatives were convinced she was “possessed by the devil”, so she took the extraordinary decision to call in an exorcist.

The shocking incident took place last Friday, but the woman finally died after what the newspaper called continuous sessions of exorcism performed by a “fqih” (exorcist) in Douar Beni Salah in the Tetouan region of Morocco.
