 Faith-based family planning

Family values in action:
A US court has convicted a man of killing nine of his children, many of whom he had fathered through incest.

Marcus Wesson, a 58-year-old religious zealot who ran his family like a cult, could face the death penalty.

He was arrested last year after police found nine bodies with identical bullet wounds at his home - a massacre that shocked the Californian town of Fresno.

Wesson's lawyers had argued that eight of the victims were shot dead by his daughter, who then killed herself.

The victims were between one and 25 years old.

The jury took two weeks to convict Wesson on all nine counts of murder.

It also found him guilty of 14 counts of raping and molesting seven of his daughters and nieces.

There must be a link between mental illness and the propensity to believe in the supernatural. I've never heard of a humanist murdering his own kids, have you?
