"otherwise he would be denied the Kingdom of Heaven" - parents of child kill by their religious negligence
Russian religious zealots ensured that their child would die from a injury sustained in a car crash by driving to their church for an emergency baptism instead of seeking aid at a hospital.

“A psychiatric ward is the best temple for such people,” an unidentified Investigative Committee official was cited as saying.
You've got to love the approach the Orthodox spokesman used. It is perfect.
