God Lets Children Starve

The money ran out first. Then the food.
Over three months in 2006, as her five children grew more emaciated and listless by the day, Estelle Walker made no move to find a job, no effort to scrounge up a meal, her kids told a jury yesterday.
“We were supposed to wait for God to provide,” said Walker’s oldest daughter, now 21. “And that’s what we did.”

The Godless authorities are now trying to put her in jail for child neglect. Good for them. For every thousand times that a mother sits home and prays for food while her kids starve, there is at least one time that some serendipitous event happens and the kids get fed. Sadly, this was not one of them.

Is it impolite to ask where Grandma and Grandpa were?
