I suppose that there are many reasons to have children. I’d never realized that using them as a religious sacrifice was on that last.
Of course, if you really want to use your children as a means of paying for your sins, why would you want to advertise it?
ROCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) — A woman and her boyfriend are accused of plotting to sacrifice the woman’s three children on a church altar.
Nicole Mancini, 29, and John Thurber, 35, were arrested at St. Mary’s Church on Wednesday after workers said they heard the woman say she wanted to sacrifice the boys.
“We could tell this woman was not right,” said church secretary Donna Landolfi. “She said, ‘Let’s go make the sacrifice.”’
Mancini and Thurber were in jail Saturday on more than $25,000 bail. They were arraigned Friday on three counts each of misdemeanor child endangerment. Thurber was also charged with marijuana possession.
The children, ages 9, 7 and 2, were not harmed and were placed in state custody. Police said Thurber is the father of the youngest boy.
Police said Mancini told them that Jesus sacrificed himself for her, so she was going to sacrifice the boys to free her soul.
Of course, now that there are lawyers involved, the hilarity is only just beginning. Now they are being portrayed as just this side of Mother Teresa. At least the state of New Hampshire has the children while the jailarity gets wound up to epic proportions.
