Online commenters predictably not amused

(Newser) – When Shona Carter-Brooks and Johnathan Brooks wed last month, the Tennessee couple wanted to include their 1-month-old daughter, Aubrey, in the ceremony. Sweet, right? Well, maybe not: Carter-Brooks somehow attached the newborn to the train of her wedding gown and then dragged her down the aisle, the Daily Mail reports. Pictures of the, er, interesting idea on social media prompted such an uproar that Carter-Brooks has released a response on Facebook, insisting, "Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!!"

She also noted, "We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power. ... We do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine." Of course, not all the comments have been negative—a friend of the couple who attended the ceremony wrote that seeing "the princess tagging behind you" made her get all verklempt. An amusing side note: Carter-Brooks claimed the dress was a Vera Wang (though from a presumably less-expensive line, as she says she bought it at David's Bridal), but the company tells BuzzFeed it's not from any of its collections. (At least Carter-Brooks didn't pummel her bridesmaid, like this bride-to-be did ... while on a plane.)

How much more proof do people need that religion is a dangerous mind-altering "substance"? If your love of Jesus drives you to endanger your children, why doesn't your love of your children drive you to endanger Jesus? Child Protection Services should be called on anyone who thinks God will protect their children from the consequences of their own idiotic behavior.

Just a small preview of whats in store for this poor child! No respect. Hardly a loving or nurturing thing to do. The baby is not a novelty or a toy or should be the tail end brunt of her wedding jokes. Child Protective Services should put her on a watch list. Sick!
