A Colorado couple and three of their four daughters, all 6 years old and younger, died after their family vehicle was struck by an Amtrak train while on their way to church Sunday. Their second oldest daughter, who is 4, was the lone survivor.
"We were at church and when they didn't show up for church, we were worried about what was going on," Keith Schlabach, a cousin of Christina Miller, 32, the mother who perished with her daughters, told The Denver Post Monday morning. "We thought they were broken down or something. One of the other guys was driving back from church toward Steve's house to see what happened, and then he got to the tracks."
Colorado State Patrol identified the family on Monday. Christina's husband, Stephen, 32, was behind the wheel of the family's 2005 Chrysler Town & Country minivan while his wife was in the passenger seat. A GoFundMe page seeking to fund the family members' funeral identified the deceased children as Abigail, 6, Kathryn, 2, and Ellianna who is just 8 months old. Heidi, 4, who was seriously hurt, was reported to be in stable condition Monday. more >>
Moments before his wife, Christy Sheats, 42, gunned down the couple's two daughters after arguing about an apology outside of their Texas home last Friday, Jason Sheats begged her to "just shoot yourself," according to a close family friend.
Christy Sheats had no intention to die alone, however, and so she killed their daughters Madison, 17, and 21-year old Taylor to make sure that her husband would suffer, Madison Davey, the family friend, told ABC 13.
"I always knew something would happen, but I never thought she would do this. Christy was toxic for the family. She was mentally unstable," Davey said. more >>
Fifty of the top Islamic clerics in Pakistan have issued a religious decree that gives transgender people the right to marry, and receive family inheritance and funeral rights, as long as individuals display "visible signs" that they belong to the gender they claim.
"It is permissible for a transgender person with male indications on his body to marry a transgender person with female indications on her body," said the religious document issued on Sunday, as reported by Reuters.
"Also, normal men and women can also marry such transgender people as have clear indications on their body." more >>
While Christians should certainly seek to receive their parents' blessing for a marriage, they shouldn't wait for this blessing forever, theologian John Piper says.
Piper, founder and teacher for DesiringGod.org and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis, Minnesota, shares his advice for couples who are planning to get married in an interview posted on Monday.
Christians, Piper says, should revere their parents and value their opinion when it comes to something so serious as the prospect of marriage, but they also don't need to wait forever if their parents refuse to give the couple their nuptial blessing. more >>
