Where are her brothers and sisters in Christ? Why aren't they coming to her aid?
Why come to her aid when they can just send off a quick 10 second prayer her way, rather than actually going down there to protest, as that would be too much trouble...
I'll give the christians this - they are consistent...

GOOD they are delusional.
I'm sorry Christians. Sincerely many of you have good hearts, but it's time to grow up.

It's a form of incremental police state tactics against christians and other undesirables. You start with the marginal cases like this, and then eventually you can get to the point where anyone who believes in the christian God is considered an enemy of the state.
This poor lady actually believes that she is the woman in Rev. 12. That is a role that clearly belongs to Israel. So it's easy for the authorities to prey on her, since she is already marginalized, even by those in her faith. Let's hope and pray that she will be released soon.

Actually the Bible never even touches on the subject of suicide. It is believed by Christian Scholars that if a true Christian commits suicide that it lowers their position in Heaven. Nowhere in the Bible does it say suicide= hell. What if a person took their own life because they wished to be with God or to end horrible suffering from a disease or accident?
Tamara Laroux was broken and aimless and thought her only option was to put a gun to her heart. Tamara attempted suicide by shooting herself in the chest. She died and came back to life. She believes she experienced the afterlife between the time she was bleeding out and when she recovered.
I was convinced there was no way to live a completely happy life. If I couldn’t live happy, I didn’t want to live at all.
I believed the only answer for me was to end my life. I began screaming out to God, “God, forgive me.” The gun went off. My lungs began to fill up with blood. I began to go deaf. My eyes were open, and I became blinded. I knew that death was gripping my soul. Then all of a sudden I felt my soul leave my body. I instantly began falling and falling.
At that moment I knew I was no longer in control of my destiny. I ended up in a place that was complete torment. My body was burning. I no longer was lonely. I was no longer depressed. I became depression. I became loneliness. I became a tormented being of fear. I saw all of these other people and everybody was screaming out in pain. The mutual thing that everyone shared there was their desire to scream out to everybody on earth, “Do not come here. Acknowledge that life is about Jesus Christ.”
Eternity is real. Hell is real. Heaven is real. How you live your life will determine where you go. Everybody cried out that their loved ones would hear the truth.
I saw the hand of God literally come down. I knew that He was coming for me. His hand picked me up, and instantaneously I was no longer a being of tormented sin. I now was being cleansed. God took me over the Heavens.Source
The only way a christian can get into Heaven through the loss of their own life is by sacrificing it for another. Suicide is a 1 way ticket straight to Hell. No if, and's or buts. The Bible is pretty blunt on that. I don't know they would be present on Judgement Day.
This comment and all it's stars are a wonderful example of what is coming.
"And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. (Mat 10:22)"
In your effort to condemn, accuse, and falsify, you bring the truth to light.

I grew up the moment I became Christian. What is childish about trying to live a moral life and take on responsibilities and standing up for something? Sounds more childish to me to insinuate that you can do whatever you wish in this world and there be no consequence.

Speaking as both an Ordained Christian and a life long Mental Health patient, I believe that if she is a danger to herself or others then she is in the right place. I've been there myself and I was much better when I left the unit.
That said, no one has the right to insist that someone denounce their faith on any level and if she is mentally ill, then by taking away her faith and beliefs all that they're doing is taking away something that provides her with comfort and strength and this usually makes things much worse for the patient.
My thoughts and prayers will be with her.
