It doesn't matter who the primary care giver was, nobody should be able to take another person's life. It's not hard to say at all, IMO. This is a very black and white issue to me. I say hang the father. Better yet, let someone smother him with a pillow.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
