“Both brothers were continually subjected to physical punishment over the course of several hours in the hopes that each would confess to prior sins and ask for forgiveness,” chief of the New Hartford Police, Michael Inserra said.

Lucas died on Monday afternoon after being driven to a hospital by family members, who falsely told doctors the teenager had suffered a gunshot wound, police said.
Leonard’s injuries were consistent with blunt force trauma to his torso and extremities, police said.

Through interviews with church members, police said they learned that his younger brother, 17-year-old Christopher had also been severely beaten during the counseling session.

  1. And if they were Muslims?. It would have been dubbed “honor killing”.

    Where are our christian brothers and sisters?

      • Oh really? religious sentiment aside? Lol

        Let’s wait for similar incident from Pakistan and if that happens, wanna know what you have to say then.

    • i think you are right to some extent, this is why i stay away from all these religious nutters that always quote bible on every issues to justify their arguments or statements, it borders on extremism people should be aware.similar things like this happens in Nigeria as well, they claim to be God fearing and all that, religion is personal and should remain so.

  2. That a christian did this doesn’t make it right. the parents did wrong by subjecting those boys to physical torture. asking for forgiveness is a thing one on his own should ask for and not forced to do so.I am a christian, sentiments aside, this is bad no matter the religion of who did it.

  3. they are not matured in D WORD OF GOD.JESUS never fought,punish or kill to propagate religion or force anyone to confess.they should face the conseqences of manslaughter.

  4. EITHER YOU ARE MUSLIM OR CHRISTIAN,THERE IS NO DIFFERENT BETWEEN THESE TWO, RELIGION HAVE THE SAME IDEA. BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH BELIEVED IN SLAVERY.

    THEY ARE THE SAME VAMPIRE , WHOSE THEIR MIND ARE SO DARK, THEY ARE OUT OF TOUCH AND FULL OF EVIL.

    ALL RELIGION ARE RACIST TO WOMEN , SO THEY ARE THE SAME , AND THEY ARE READY TO KID THEIR CHILD FOR ANYTHING ING THE NAME OF THE SO CALLED.
