I have no idea what you're talking about.If you support it I would like to know why.
No, I've made the case that any step towards greater government control and intrusions in our lives, especially in areas where the constitution has flatly stated the government "shall make no law", is a step towards fascism, which is basically (IMO) a perspective that the state (government) should run our lives and be basically our "religion".You had expressed earlier in this thread that legislation restricting or directing parenting is fascist.
No, we aren't. There is no law against faith healing whatsoever, nor does any law or statute consider it a criminal offense in any way whatsoever.We are currently punishing the period of time leading up to the inevitable harm when we punish faith healing negligence
Because nobody's rights (who have such rights) have been violated up to that point.I want to know why we cannot intervene earlier in that period of time to proactively avoid the inevitable harm.
Because you believe it to be inevitable doesn't mean it is actually inevitable.If a hemophiliac child is bleeding and instead of stopping the bleeding the parents opt to pray the path to harm is inevitable.
We all must judge our own responsibilities individually in such cases. I think that in cases of hemophiliacs, the state isn't going to know about it until it is too late, if the child dies.Should a police officer standing nearby wait until the child dies to avoid infringing on the parents liberty to parent as they see fit or should the officer proactively intervene? At what point in the timeline should intervention occur?
Because there are just so many cases where hemophiliac children of parents who believe in faith healing die due to lack of standard medical treatment?Would it infringe on the parents' rights if the government required all parents of hemophiliac children to take courses regarding the disease? Or perhaps sign a contract stating they will seek standard practice medical aid or suffer the full punishment of the law?
I think that in order to preserve individual liberty as much as possible, creating a precedent where parents are forced by the state to be submit to state-controlled education on a subject, and then forced to sign some kind of contract of behavior or else have their child taken away (which I presume would be the penalty for not signing the contract or submitting to the educational media), we can tolerate the deaths of a few hemophiliac children who happened to be born to parents who believe in faith healing and refuse standard medical care.
