The Minds of Those Who Dream Of Feasting of the Corpses of Children

"I wonder if I could eat a child if I had the chance."
     "I doubt if I could cook one," said Constance.

One would consider it an abominable transgression to feast upon the corpse of an innocent, unsuspecting child. However, this thought of such an unspeakable action was not far from the thoughts of Mary Katherine in the somewhat dark fiction, "We Have Always Lived in the Castle." In the book Mary Katherine was guilty of narrating the following: “I wish you were all dead, I thought, and longed to say it out loud.”

Although just seeming like a minutely disturbing quote, this morbid thought of eating a small child consumed the heart and mind of an individual closer to reality to both you and I. These preconceived thoughts were entertained by a man named Ronald William Brown who parents allowed to enter their homes through television on no other station than the Christian Television Network. Brown was a Christian puppeteer who ironically was sentenced to twenty years of prison for crimes of child pornography. However, once further investigation was executed, the article reported “Brown's involvement in an alleged conspiracy to kidnap, cook, and eat a child whom he met through his affiliation with the Gulf Coast Church.” On an online community, Ronald William Brown would request images of children being both bound and gagged. To take things a step further, Brown would write out his grim fantasies of murder. While chatting online Brown was found stating, “I imagine him wiggling and then going still.”

In summation, the despondent thoughts of a fictional child named Merricat seem quite odd but these types of thoughts are not far removed from the minds that live in the same world that we tread. They are housed in the minds of those we place our trust with our children and those that even claim to do the work of the Lord.
