Seriously, what is wrong with this world? I am sick of hearing that its a decline in Christianity - you don't need to be a Christian to understand right from wrong. You don't need to be a Christian to know you don't hurt others. It's just basic human decency!
Seems like everyday I am reading more and more about babies/children being abused at the hands of their parents - it sickens me beyond words - and it breaks my heart.
Truthfully, this is one of the major reasons I DO struggle with Christianity - I have a hard time wrapping my mind around the concept of a supreme being - God - who would allow these children to be abused or killed. Often when I have brought this question up, I am told it's cause God gave people free will....well that's all well and good but what the hell about the free will of these babies? They had no choice in the matter! Some asshat comes along and decides to break his 15 mth old sons legs and it's all "free will"....well why does God let the freewill of that asshat trump the life of an innocent child?
I can't embrace the concept of a God who lets these things happen - and if by saying so, I go to hell - then so be it - cause frankly, this world seems like a living hell as it is!
How many more of these stories do we have to read? How many more children are abused or killed at the hand of some lunatic before we find a way to stop it?
Maine man charged with breaking son's legs
By The Associated Press
WATERBORO, Maine — A 21-year-old Waterboro man is in jail for allegedly breaking his 15-month-old son's legs.
The York County Sheriff's Department said Shaun Dubnick-Sadowski was charged with aggravated assault Tuesday night after his son was brought to Goodall Hospital in Sanford.
Sheriff's officials said their investigation revealed that Dubnick-Sadowski twisted the child's legs until he felt them snap, but that he offered no good explanation for his actions.
Officials said the incident happened Sunday while the child's mother was at work. She told investigators that Dubnick-Sadowski at first told her the child fell down and hurt his ankle, and later changed his story to say he fell on the boy while playing.
Officials said the child is still in the hospital and in the custody of the state Department of Health and Human Services. The mother is not expected to be charged.
The real kicker is this tool got out on $500.00 bail - wow - $500. Why bother?
Here's another sicko - this one right from my own backyard practically -

Shoot, I've seen animals take better care of their young! It's amazing to me that in order to adopt a cat, dog, guinea pig, ferret, bunny, etc from the local shelters, I have to fill out form after form, practically give a urine/blood sample, turn over one of my kidneys, etc, and yet any jackass can procreate and become a parent! I have to have a licence to fish, to hunt, to drive but hey any guy/girl can get their rocks off together and make a baby - start a whole new life - and kill it/abuse it/throw it away....yeah, this is a messed up world we live in folks!
