A 9-year-old boy was found dead in his Philadelphia home and authorities suspect medical neglect, reports The Philadelphia Daily News.
The deceased child’s father is a member of a group called “Faith Tabernacle Congregation,” which teaches members not to seek medical care or visit doctors.
They boy’s aunt a member of the group said, “You serve Satan if you go to a doctor.”
Faith Tabernacle is another example of the type of destructive fringe groups often responsible for deaths due to medical neglect.
But the group’s members certainly don’t feel responsible.
The dead child’s aunt said when people die “God wants that person. He takes life. He gives life.”
Well, if authorities find out that the boy’s death could have been prevented through proper medical care, someone will be wanted on criminal charges and eventually be taken to jail.
