"I didn't believe he was going to die."

Faith-healing "mom" confessed on the stand to the crime charged . Just like the old Perry Mason days! She said: "I didn't believe he was going to die." She knew he was sick enough that she should be feeling some concern about whether he was going to die or not and she didn't believe he was going to die. She's not defending her conduct, as The Oregonian interpreted her statement. She was confessing that she believed that God would heal her son. That's the point of the criminal trial.

I find it interesting that the folks in Oregon City believe in God and Lawyers but they don't believe in Doctors?

The jury is still out on whether those religious killers are going to be punished. (There have been 70 preventable deaths of children in that same congregation of fruit-cakes.) The Doser tends to feel very strongly that the DA under-charged. I should have been murder. He probably won't get a conviction, however, on the slap-on-the-wrist charge that they are trying.
