The Lazarus rule

Starving

In Maryland, a cult member who allegedly starved her child to death has agreed to plead guilty -- on the stipulation that all charges will be dropped if the baby is resurrected. Snip:

"This is something she absolutely insisted upon, and it's indicative of the fact that she is still brainwashed and still a victim of this cult, and until she's deprogrammed, she's not going to think any differently," said Ramkissoon's attorney, Steven Silverman.

The little boy, 16 months old, wasn't given food or water because he stopped saying "amen" at meals.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, Mikeybackwards and JUNGLE JIM!
