There are so many tragic cases of abuse, I don’t usually mention them unless the abuse was clearly tied to Christian teachings.  In the case of the Barbours the ties are not indisputable, but there are some pretty good hints.  Thankfully, this case did not end in death.

Maureen compares the Barbours with the Williams and finds quite a few eerie similarities.

There is a lot of information the 2 articles she links to from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

This story from Oct 2012 tells about how the adoption ended in tragedy.

This story from June 2014 is the follow up and tells us that the couple pleaded No Contest.

    “She was also taken to Children’s, where she was diagnosed with retinal hemorrhaging and a brain injury.”

    I am absolutely furious at their sentencing. He is free. She gets 3-12 months in jail, but they are appealing for probation?! They get to keep their bio kids?! And people in the article are still so brainwashed as to call them “good people.” No. This is not justice!
