Earthquakes? Ah, don’t build your house on a fault line. Floods? Stop putting homes in flood planes. Tornados? Come on, the technology exists to make every home nearly tornado proof. But wicked parents? What stops them but God alone?
the perverse ‘princess’ herself
Police in Georgia charged a 21-year-old mother with cruelty to children on Friday after discovering her toddler covered in feces, hungry and locked inside her garbage-strewn home. Forsyth County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Cumming home of Stephanie Davis when a concerned family member reported her concern for Davis’ young son, according Sheriff Ted Paxton. The caller said Davis contacted her around 4:30 a.m., after she was arrested by Roswell police for driving drunk and speeding. The family member said Davis assured her that someone was watching her son, police said.
When deputies arrived at Davis’ home they received no response to knocks on the front door. During a cursory search of the exterior, they heard a dog barking and the cries of a child coming from an open window. “Because of the extenuating circumstances, one of the deputies pulled the screen off of the window and entered the home,” Paxton said. “The deputy then made his way to the room where he heard the child crying. What he found was a child that was trapped in his room by a closed door, equipped with a safety device on the inside doorknob, that prevented the child from opening the door.” The toddler, who was dressed only in a filthy white t-shift, had removed his diaper, which was “overflowing with feces.” The child had feces on his “hands, feet and legs,” police said. The child’s room had only a mattress and box springs on the floor. The rest of the home was allegedly in disarray, with overflowing trash cans, dirty dishes and rotting food. Authorities said there were more than 50 bags of garbage.
Why God allows natural disasters isn’t really a problem for me. Why he allows people like this to have children- that’s a huge problem. Huge. If I have the chance to ask the question that burns in my soul it will be ‘Dear God, why did you ever allow miscreants like Stephanie Davis into the world in the first place? And letting her be, why did you let her have children? And having children, why didn’t you stop her cruelty?’
And then God will have an answer, I’m sure, that will knock my socks off. I just wish I knew what it was now, because people like Davis fill my heart with rage and loathing and contempt and a serious desire that God would ‘go all Old Testament’ on them so that plagues of the most violent sort rained down on their vile unworthy heads like flood-waters sprung from the deepest depths.
