Religiosity Common Among Mothers Who Kill Children

Thanks to The Atheologist for having a link to last year's news story. The study was pointing out what is happening, more research is needed to understand why:

"What isn't clear is what's causing what," she said. "Is the church causing people to develop these feelings or are people with these feelings more likely to gravitate toward a fundamentalist church?"

In either case, I can hardly imagine the pain of the mother a she recovers from such a horrific act.

I have never heard a story in the news where an atheist woman kills her kids. It's always a crazed xian.
