Things like this truly enrage me…why are children so young being killed for stupid religious reasons….WTF!!!…a child is suppose to be the most loved item in your life yet some fathers or mothers would rather be rich or with some person that dosen’t give a rats ass about them and abuses them to make them feel better about themself…yet a child is there for you when you need them the most…to kill your own child you must be pertty fucked up in the head to kill your own flesh and blood… if you kill your offspring another will kill you…if you date someone of a different religion what is the big deal…black, white, mexican, christian, muslim, athiest…what different truly…we have hearts, mind, and feelings…nothing different about us…just what you choose to be different….
