A woman slit her daughters’ throats before slitting her own early Friday evening, claiming that "the Tribulation" was going to occur and she wanted to prevent them from suffering through it, officials said.
Lyn Benedetto, 47, reportedly told her daughters to lie on a bed and proceeded to take a knife to their throats.
The suspect then took the knife to her own throat before driving the victims to an unoccupied friend’s house to die.
The victims were treated at Antelope Valley Hospital for moderate though non life-threatening injuries and released to custody of Department of Children’s Services.
The Dutch Catholic Church and the Salesian order are investigating revelations that a Salesian priest served on the board of a group that promotes pedophilia with the full knowledge of his boss.
The order’s top official in the Netherlands, Delegate Herman Spronck, confirmed in a statement that the priest – identified by RTL Nieuws as 73-year-old "Father Van B." – served on the board of "Martijn," a group that campaigns to end the Dutch ban on adult-child sex.
The group is widely reviled but not outlawed.
Last night was probably a busy one for Bart Centre of New Hampshire. He is the founder of Eternal Earthbound Pets, a service that places pets who are not lifted into the sky during today’s rapture into the loving homes of non-believers. Should things go the way that some of his clients think they will, later today forty-four of Centre’s associates around the country will visit the newly vacated homes of 259 clients to collect the soulless dogs, cats, birds, fish and gerbils that will be left behind when their owners ascend to heaven, which apparently has a No Pets policy. (Like Centre, all the potential caretakers are atheists.)
Of all the wasteful, misguided uses of technology, this has to be one of he strangest; some Texas schools are going to spend $2 million to install cameras in cafeterias to find out why children are getting fat.
