An East London woman entered a plea of guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished mental capacity, in the death of her daughter.

From the article:
Quote
When police arrived at their east London home, the woman was chanting: "I seek refuge in God from the curse of Satan".

The Old Bailey heard Ali had sunk "suddenly and deeply into mental illness" and was convinced the spirits or jinn had entered the bodies of members of her family.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Hard to know what to think of this in light of the story of Abraham.

I'm going to need this.

God saw Abraham's faith, and stopped him from sacrificing Isaac. That's the difference.
