According to an Idaho Republican lawmaker, a proposed state ban on substituting medical care with faith healing would violate the religious freedom of her constituents. “They have a clear understanding of what the role of government should be, [and it] isn’t how to tell me how to live my life,” said GOP state Rep. Christy Perry.…

    If you want your child to “be with god” why not just kill them with a knife and be done with it? If you believe in god, you have to believe he gave us a brain, so we could figure out how to keep babies from dying. Otherwise, we’re no better than all the other animals. The stupidity of these people just overwhelms.

    The christian talibaggers are all about forced birth but after that the kids can die. That’s what I take away from her statements.

    well betting she is a climate denier as well, seeing she does not care about her own children never mind grand kids or generations down the line.

    sick, here in Oregon we had family that let one child go blind, another die because they was told they could just pray.

    not sure why they was not put away for a while for child abuse and endangerment.

    No doubt a double standard…I’ll bet she’s anti abortion, so she has no problem dictating your medical options but when others want to dictate hers, it’s oppression of her 1st amendment right’s…what’s the word for a hypocritical hypocrite that spews hypocrisy??? (Republican???)

      “…what’s the word for a hypocritical hypocrite that spews hypocrisy??? (Republican???)” i like that.

        I like it too. Not unlike my favorite epithet, “F*ck the f*cking f*ckers!”

    Is there a more honest and open example of why people who claim to be on a “mission from god” or “doing gods will” while running for office should be tarred and feathered and run out of town?
    This is a prime reason why we have to insure a separation of church and state. These holy rollers and jesus freaks would literally let people die, and die a slow and painful death as possible.

    This is the pro life bunch too

  8. Larry Schmitt February 25th, 2015 at 10:14 am

    You mean like Abraham did?

    “If I want to let my fetus be with God, why is that wrong?”

    • Pilotshark February 25th, 2015 at 10:21 am

      well now that is very true, and would also put a damper on the pro life crown.

      if yo can let them die for god then you should be able to let god have them before they are born.

      Have to give you a BINGO for a winner.

      thanks for saying this!

    Another right winger who wants government out of their lives but wants that same government to regulate everyone else’s private behavior. Right wingers love to talk about the “natural” progression of liberalism where supposedly if we had our way, the government would own and run everything.

    Well I will take that world of 100% government ownership anytime over a world where the natural progression of limited government conservatism which gives us a world where you are “free” to dump your used motor oil in the street or the local river, corporations poison our air and water with impunity as they pay their workers $3 per hour with no benefits, and parents can watch their child die from easily treatable disease. Maybe that is some peoples’ idea of “freedom”. It is not mine.

    “…capital murder.” what?

  12. tiredoftea February 25th, 2015 at 11:29 am

    Idaho, where stupid goes to breath free.

  13. jybarz February 25th, 2015 at 11:31 am

    Well, as always, stupid people don’t know they’re stupid. Of course, God loves everyone even the stupid ones. But, as I’m not God… God, I hate stupid people!

  14. Warman1138 February 25th, 2015 at 11:36 am

    If those children are denied medical care it’s murder no matter what you call it. And if that’s ok with the politicians because ” they are with god ”. Why don’t they show us it’s ok and do us all a favor and allow themselves to sicken and die from lack of medical care so they too can ” be with god ”. And provide a good example of what they are talking about if belief is powerful enough to trump science.

    “Death is a way of life”?
    Approaching 73, I think about what death will mean, and I recognize that it is indeed a FACT of life. I also believe strongly in the right to choose one’s moment and manner of death, and I hope to be able to have some control over my own. But to talk like this about young children who could be saved by a simple medical intervention, and who themselves have no say in the matter, is the most arrogant and inhumane thing I’ve heard in a long time, even from a Republican, even in Idaho.

    “They are comforted by the fact that they know their child is in heaven.”

    That is wonderful the parents found comfort in the death of their child, but I have to wonder how much comfort the child experienced as he gasped for his final breath…knowing there was preventive medicine available to eliminate his suffering.

  17. Bunya February 25th, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Republican view children like brands new cars. His/her life is precious, and every precaution should be made to treat him/her with great care. However, once the child passes through the birth canal, the value of his/her life diminish greatly in value.

  18. Suzanne McFly February 25th, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    So if stupidity is Gods will, why did she give us brains?

  19. Shades February 26th, 2015 at 7:45 am

    Yeah, because we all know parents would much rather their children die young then be allowed to grow up and live full, happy lives.
