U.K.: FAT CHILDREN TO BE TAKEN FROM PARENTS

After recently mandating that children be adopted to homosexual couples, Britain is now threatening to take fat children away from their parents. I am no defender of modern day gluttony, and working mothers who must feed their children a constant diet of fast food because they have no time to properly care for their offspring. However, I do condemn the modern world's assessment of good and evil. It reminds me of Jesus words: "Fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell."

Excerpt from
Independant: "Dangerously overweight children will have to be taken from their parents and put into care because of Britain's worsening "obesity epidemic", council leaders have warned.

One million children will be clinically obese within four years on current trends, storing up future problems from heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure and diabetes.

The Local Government Association (LGA), which represents 400 councils in England and Wales, predicted social services teams would have to take drastic action to improve the health of seriously overweight children.

Social workers have only become involved very rarely in such cases, considering the issue is best tackled by parents.

But the LGA warned that social services might have to treat very fat children as victims of "parental neglect" – just as malnourished children are.

It predicted that social services would have to intervene "more and more" with obese children. It added that councils would have to take action against parents who put their children's health at risk, with the ultimate sanction of taking the fattest boys and girls into care."

"The Government faced criticism this month after it announced plans to warn parents if their child had a weight problem, but banned the use of the word "obese". The Department of Health is instructing primary care trusts to inform all parents automatically about their child's height and weight as part of a national measuring programme.

But ministers do not want the word "obese" to be used in the letters after research showed people find it "highly offensive".

The question remains, however, if children are taken from their parents for being fat--what reason will be given--so as not to offend?
