This is simply horrific:
A man accused of biting out his 4-year-old son’s eyes is not competent to stand trial.
The 34-year old father is charged with mayhem, torture and child cruelty in the April 28 attack on his son Angelo Mendoza Jr. A neighbor found the 4-year-old naked, unconscious and covered in blood on the floor of his home. Officers later discovered that one of the boy’s eyes was missing and the other eye was horribly damaged.
The child told officers, “My daddy ate my eyes,” according to Bakersfield police reports.
Mendoza is in a wheelchair with a spinal cord injury, and police said he rolled away from his apartment after the alleged attack and started hacking away at his leg with an ax.
A family friend says Mendoza had stopped taking his medication and was hearing voices in the month before the incident…
No doubt the attack will be blamed on drugs or a mental problem, but the spiritual aspect of this grisly event should be clear to Christians. Sometimes when people claim to hear voices, they’re really hearing voices. This father had not only given up wrestling with the powers and principalities who’ve rebelled against God, he’d sold out to them.
God help that boy.
