    lol. or maybe his daughter was into adultry, prostitution, drugs and murder, so Mr God thught she wasnt worthy, think bout that. =]
    but no, he's stupid, and people still believe that god will carry them through troubled times.
    Yeah, but come on.
    Believing that God'll help is one thing, but basically sacrificing your daughter is the complete opposite.

    belief is one thing, but nothing comes down from the sky, you need to make an effort.

    Wow just because one couple don't do the most obvious means that every religious person is similar! OH WAIT that isn't the case. Flippin heck, as soon as one stupid act in which religion is linked, TSR goes up in flames towards religion in general. Most religious people accept modern medicine and use it.

    oh yeah course, i was sort of being sarcastic, i just dont see how people like him can be so naive, i mean, we know that science/medicine works but he was willing to sacrifice his daughter because of his beliefs, its just plain stipidity.

    He shouldn't be jailed. He should be given psychiatric treatment.

    Even though I agree that his actions were rather stupid, I think the punishment that he got was more harsh than what he deserved - because he genuinely intended to save her life with his actions, rather than end her life.

    Intentions don't count for anything, only actions matter :cool:

    lol they all have stupid names for starters - burning flame 3 in this case
    they recycle actors over and over again - granted HK is a small place
    they have stupid story lines
    acting is bad

    :p:
    The acting may be bad compared to Hollywood, but it's godly compared to Vietnamese state TV dramas :facepalm: I agree on the ridiculous titles somewhat, but does it beat Japan's 'kawaii' culture? :lolwut:

    On-topic: I wouldn't say that he deserved on the basis that I'm strictly atheist. But I would say that he deserved it on the basis that he fails.

    That's not how the law usually works

    I suppose one could claim that this comes under recklessness or criminal negligence - but from what the article says, it seems like more of an active attempt to save a life rather than negligence.

    But to be honest, they don't deserve jailtime... the punishment of losing their daughter to their own idiocy is enough

    Wouldn't the sentence be considerably less were he proven insane? (I'm no lawyer).

    Suppose it would be difficult to distinguish the insane from the brainwashed in any case.

    It really is incredible that in this day and age there are still people whose mind has been bound by religion. It is a noose around the neck of free thought and progress.
    Doesn't free thought also mean that you are free to believe in a religion? You can't have it both ways saying everyone must have free speech but your not allowed to do x y and z.

    oh dear... i don't care what an adult believes, as long as they don't act upon those beliefs in a way such as to harm others.

    and kids should be excempt from any and all religious decision making. that case mentioned above where the Jehovah's Witness witheld blood from her daughter, the doctors should be able to override faith based decisions if it's going to save a minor. i think.
    i'll be the first to admit i'm wrong btw if someone mounts a good argument against that. it's 4:30am so i'm not thinkin my best.
