Father 'prayed instead of seeking treatment as baby starved to death'
Christian father who starved baby daughter and refused to seek treatment because of Christian beliefs jailed in US. It's good to see jail time for this. Some states have religious exceptions to child medical neglect laws to protect "religious freedom". Christianity teaches that prayer can heal serious illnesses like leprosy, and faith healing miracles can even raise people from the dead (like Jesus was said to do). Some Christians view using medical science as disloyal and faithless.
