There are plenty of examples of even adults mocking God who weren't treated so harshly. If these special preachers were truly kind and holy, they wouldn't even think of bringing such violent death upon little children (I wouldn't), especially for such a petty superficial thing. But apparently, you think otherwise.
And what kind of message from these emissaries was that sending?
As for God's discrimination of those with injuries or physical deformities, that throws the whole "it's what's on the inside that counts" view. Not a very spiritual view at all I would think. "Don't let them come near my altar, they are less than physically perfect!" And what a message to send to anyone you know who is physically "less than perfect".
So is that the kind of morality you teach to your kids?
