    It appears both parents were complicit in this so they should both face charges. I hope the the boy has contacted a child advocacy group and can be placed in protective custody with another relative or family friend. Instances of neglected or abused children makes my blood boil. What I find the most ironic in this issue is that the friend was someone from their church; it makes me wonder what kind of hate was being preached to the parents that they felt this was a viable solution.

    So true nudeyorker. I don't want to assume anything but the church would appear to be a cult. Signs of control don't you think.

    "Suffer the little children to come unto me for theirs is the kingdom of heaven"

    Just another example of good christian parents "loving" the living daylights out if their kids so they might be saved in the "make believe".

    Although I'm not against spanking as a form of discipline, this would seem a display of pure cowardess and lack of responsibility by the parents.

    *observation purely based on the facts as reported in the article and not imputed judgement

    I've been thinking about these parents today and I suspect they voted to eliminate the rights of same-sex couples to marry in California. I wish we could somehow make restrictions that it would be more difficult for stupid people to procreate and vote.

    Sickening.

    I found this quote from the (first) article to be rather intriguing:
    Maybe it's just the way it was phrased, but to me that reads like the man provides this 'service' for other parents as well.

    Seriously disturbing stuff.

    EDIT: After reading the article linked by aninnymouse, my suspicions were confirmed:
