Offspring Murder Club: Victory Over Child Devil Soldier

UPDATE: Blacksun provided a link to a video and accompanying article about the murder of this child and the church that his assassins/parents attended.

The Offspring Murder Club is off to a strong start for 2007 with the induction of two new members, Joseph and Sonya Smith of Atlanta, Georgia:

A suburban Atlanta couple was convicted of murder Friday in the beating death of their 8-year-old son, a case that prompted authorities to raid the parents' church because it supports corporal punishment.

Prosecutors said Joseph and Sonya Smith beat their son Josef, locked him in a wooden box and confined him to a closet for hours at a time before he died in October 2003.


The Cobb County medical examiner concluded that Josef died from blows to the head, and firefighters who responded to the family's emergency calls said his body was covered with bruises.


A police witness said Joseph Smith's father acknowledged hitting the boy "four or five times" and told officers his son frequently needed discipline because the child carved death threats on the walls and claimed to be a "soldier of the devil."

The boys' parents told authorities Josef passed out and never regained consciousness after the family gathered in the kitchen to participate in a prayer session with their church via the Internet.

Score one for God! Let this be a lesson to all the 8 year old Soldiers of the Devil that God knows if you've been bad or good, and your own parents will bash your head in if you try to fulfill Satan's demonic plan on Earth. Hallelujah!

Seriously now, look at what happened here. A very religious couple had a son who they allege was claiming to be an agent of Satan. For the sake of argument, let's assume that the boy was indeed causing trouble and claiming to be a demonic soldier. If these parents didn't believe in Heaven and Hell, they would have more likely sought the help of mental health experts who could help the boy with his behavior issues.

But not this time. These parents probably believed their son's claims that he was a true soldier of Hell. At the least, they probably believed that their son wanted to be an agent for an entity they considered to be a very real threat, instead of some fantasy invention of imagination.

These two parents definitely passed the Abraham test. Their children may die at their own hand, they may rot in prison for the rest of their natural lives, and their church may be dashed by the Feds, but one thing will never waver: their faith. For all these reasons, Joseph and Sonya Smith are the newest members of the Offspring Murder Club!

When I first started The Offspring Murder Club, I didn't expect it to last so long or grow so quickly, but new people keep wanting in all the time, and I cannot deny that they are meeting the membership requirements with vigor. Here is a list of past posts related to this exclusive club:

I hold the cult leader at least partially responsible. The woman should do some jail time over this disgrace.

Check out the following investigative report:

It becomes glaringly obvious that religion certainly doesn't 'improve' people's morals, let alone their grip on reality.
There should be a law, or a test, or both, to measure parents' fitness to bear & raise kids.

This is one of the issues that makes me intolerent of religion. The overwhelming majority of abused children (and thats all forms of abuse) are found in christian homes, especially fundamental christians. I can not for the life of me figure out how so many people can go on so blindly when religious beliefs are causing people to do the most unspeakable acts, not to mention going completely against their instincts. The statistics don't lie, it is christians that are abusing and murdering their children, not the pagans, satan worshippers or atheists. We all know the christians want so desperately to be able to pawn their own evil deeds onto us and others that don't believe what they believe. So why should I tolerate them, they will only kill a few children here and there and blame us for it? Fuck christians, I havent met a moral or honest one yet!

Hey Aaron, you forgot one of the members from a couple years back.

I hate how easily christians forget what their own have done, so I think it is best to remind them of ALL of them. You know I think the worse part of the list is that they are the ones we know about. There are plenty more that go unheard of by the media.

Now how in holy hell did I miss Deanna Laney?

I guess with SO MANY Christans slaughtering their own children in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, one was bound to fall under my radar.

Thanks guys!!! In the future, if you come across more of these things that I havent yet covered, please let me know! :)

I'm glad you're keeping track of this stuff, somebody has to.

I'm blogrolling this one.
