Some people are just crazy, don't mind them. I'm sure your daughter is beautiful.
Well at least the church doesn't have the power to actually take her away.
wow, red irises? thats really cool! they probably think she's the antichrist or something ridiculous like that because of it though.
Red irises are not helpful in anyway. Unusual yes, but they lack pigmentation to protect the eyes from the sun's rays. Making them more susceptible to cataracts and even blindness from long term exposure. She will need to wear dark sunglasses and hat outside everyday to protect her eyes.
There is also the recessive brown/red iris. Unlike an albino their eyes have pigment, but in a very reddish shade of brown that looks bright, bright red under fluorescent and many other artificial lights. The photosensitivity suggests either Albinism or one of the photodermotasoe (sp?) group of genetic disorders.
Well considering how they think your daughter's a vampire, it could've been worse-there were no stakes or silver bullets involved
Actually on second thought, these people do not seem okay. Joking would cause them to harrass you even more. They seem like they have their own iffy kind of religion where they aren't listening to God but soley their judgement themselves. K am spiritual (high belief in God' Jesus)and if I saw this in the girl, I would simply be interested (in a my major is biology, this is cool, I hope it does not affect her to much kind of way) and then I would ask about Romania yes I always wanted to know about Romania. Not because of it being a "said" vampiric place but an interesting place! It seems so dark and cold, like out of a video game. ^_^ & shame on them because they believe someone is a deity or is evil because of her eye color. Are they also not believers of science cause none of us made or chose how we look, and genetics, predisposition, mutations and rare things exist. God gave us a little science to explain things, either way they are profiling in so many ways. Sorry for ranting. But its people like this that make religion hard for everyone! How can people come learn about God if they won't be accepted, and treated right.
People in Romania, especially rural areas are extremely superstitious, and they tend to follow "the old way." Even if it's a Christian church, the people would rather rely on superstition and use corrupted logic to use religion to justify their superstition. In this case the bible says to cast out evil, and they think the little girl is evil, so getting rid of the little girl would be, to them, following the bible. I'm religious too, I don't think it's right, but I understand the thought process, but it's hard to change centuries of belief.
