I found this on The Barking Atheist. Girl Tortured By Parents Because “The Bible Says”.
Two Georgia parents were released on bond on Thursday after being charged with multiple counts of false imprisonment and cruelty to a child for allegedly holding their fifteen-year-old daughter in a chicken coop and outhouse for several days at a time and electrocuting her with a remote shock collar made for dogs.
I’ve noticed that this type of thing happens a lot when Christians adopt children from Africa. I wonder if that is the case here?
Samuel and Diana Franklin bonded out jail, but lost custody of their adopted daughter until their alleged criminal neglect is resolved.
Via The Raw Story
Diana Franklin was charged with four counts of false imprisonment and 12 counts of cruelty to children. Samuel Franklin also faces charges of 8 counts of false imprisonment and 8 counts of cruelty to children. Both parents were released on bond on Thursday.
I really should keep track of these cases. The case usually has three things in common. 1. Religious fundamentalism. 2. Adopted children. And 3. Homeschooling. It’s like the magic formula for abuse.
