these two will not be going to Jesusland…

I know this is old news but there is an aspect of it that makes me bang my head against the wall.  Well, actually there are many aspects of this story that make me want to do that but…

Adolfo Gomez, 52, and Deborah Gomez, 43, were arrested on June 13, 2012, in Lawrence, Kan., after an alert Wal-Mart shopper reported seeing their two youngest children, 7 and 5, bound with duct tape in the back of the couple’s SUV. Police found the boy, 5, on the ground outside the vehicle, on a pice of cardboard, blindfolded, his hands tied behind his back, and his legs bound together. The girl, 7, was found inside the vehicle after Gomez was arrested. She had also been blindfolded and bound. Deborah Gomez was inside the Walmart buying a bat, two rolls of duct tape and two tarps. Adolfo Gomez, who was in the vehicle “loudly either reciting religious sayings or possibly praying,” had to be tasered three times before he complied. The couple was charged with suspicion of child abuse and child endangerment. – trutv.com

Suspicion of child abuse?  Ya think?  Here’s the clincher for me, however…

 Adolofo Gomez’ attorney,  Skip Griffy, told the court that binding the children had to do with the family’s religious beliefs surrounding protection against demons, and that the children, also believers, had been willing participants. 

So if I take a chainsaw and remove old Skip’s head as a means of protection against stupidity demons, is that allowed too???  And the children are willing participants???  Of course they are when the people they look to for love and protection are complete wackaloons who should be duct taped from head to toe and suspended by a frayed bungee cord from the Golden Gate bridge…

Lawyers.  Go figure.

and of course…this occured in a Wal-Mart parking lot….

  1. Cooper, you clearly don’t get it. All those bargains at Walmart just make your inner religiosity come out. Get with the program, Cooper!

    I actually hadn’t heard this one. What the hell is happening to sanity in this country?

  2. gee, they are only a ski mask and a gun away from what i went through. yeah, it was a religious experience…i was praying to god to let me, my daughter, my husband, and my unborn child live. those poor children. my heart breaks for them.

  3. I don’t know why this kind of thing still surprises and horrifies me…but it does. It makes me wish we had mandatory birth control for fools and cruels.

  4. Young children, especially frightened and abused children, are usually willing participants in what their parents tell them to do. They trust their parents to know what is good for them.
