Religion In Crimes Not Just One Religion

  Some mainstream media like to zoom in to just on one religion all the time that creates hate of the whole collective of people that follow that faith. The Toronto Post believes in what is good for the gander is good for the goose and we don't pick and choose. Here are the most recent news articles from all 3 most recent articles that involve people following the 3 major religions of the world. 

A British court handed a life sentence to a mother who beat her seven-year-old son to death and burned his body after he failed to memorize passages from the Qu'ran.
Sara Ege, 33, was convicted of murder last month after a bizarre series of confessions and retractions in which she first claimed her son Yaseen was killed in a fire at the family's Cardiff, Wales, home in July 2010, the Daily Mail reports.
She later admitted to violently beating her son, watching his final moments as he continued to recite from the Qu'ran, then deciding to destroy the evidence of her crime by setting a fire, the report said.
After recanting that admission, she variously claimed the boy was killed by her husband and that evil spirits had egged her on. According to the BBC, the parents had wanted the boy to become a hafiz - someone who memorizes the Qu'ran.
Ege will have to serve a minimum of 17 years behind bars.

Former pastor will go to prison for sexually assaulting 15-year-old boy in Madison motel room
A former church pastor from Clark County was sentenced Monday to 1½ years in 
prison for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy whom he met in an Internet chat room for gay teens.
Ervin S. Witmer, 51, of Owen, who was pastor of a church in Stanley until 2011 and was Wisconsin district manager for a Christian book distributor until February, told Dane County Circuit Judge Rebecca St. John that he has "deep remorse" for his "inappropriate behavior with this young man" in a Madison motel room.
But St. John said that Witmer committed a serious crime that traumatized the boy and caused him psychological confusion.
"This has been described as a moment of weakness," St. John said, "but it wasn't just a moment."
Instead, she said, Witmer talked with the boy over the Internet and became aware that he had been sexually abused as a youngster by an uncle before arranging to meet him at the Super 8 Motel on Madison's Far East Side when he was in town on business.
St. John said Witmer revictimized the boy by claiming that he had been trying to counsel him, and instead gave in to temptation, in essence blaming the boy for his own "moment of weakness." She said Witmer also downplayed his actions when describing them to a consulting psychologist involved in his case.
"What ultimately determines your dangerousness is your minimization," St. John said. "You've got a long way to go before you accept responsibility for what you did."
In addition to time in prison, Witmer will serve 8½ years of extended supervision. He must also register as a sex offender.
Witmer pleaded guilty in October to one count of second-degree sexual assault of a child. Two other counts were dismissed but St. John was allowed to consider them for sentencing purposes.
