How's this for horrific -- a Delaware pediatrician who wrote a book about kids who've had near-death experiences has been charged with "waterboarding" his 11-year-old daughter.

The girl told police that her father, Dr. Melvin L. Morse, 58, would hold her face under a running faucet so the water would shoot up her nose.

The "waterboarding" happened at least four times in two years. The girl's mother, Pauline Morse, 40, did nothing to intervene and also has been charged, police said.

The girl told police she "could never understand what she did to be punished" and felt scared, according to court documents. She also said her father told her that "she could go five minutes without brain damage."

A review of Morse's book, which he promoted on The Larry King ShowOprah, and 20/20, says that "In hundreds of interviews with children who had once been declared clinically dead, Dr. Morse found that children too young to have absorbed our adult views and ideas of death, share first-hand accounts of out-of-body travel, telepathic communication and encounters with dead friends and relatives."

The girl and her 5-year-old sister are in the care of Delaware child protective services.

A Jackson, Mississippi couple was forced into a change of venue for their recent nuptials after members of their predominantly white church objected to the ceremony of the black bride and groom. Pastor Stan Weatherford of First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs suggested the relocation after a small group of dissenters -- estimated around five or six -- made their opinions known about Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson's celebration:

I didn't want to have a controversy within the church, and I didn't want a controversy to affect the wedding of Charles and Te'Andrea. I wanted to make sure their wedding day was a special day.

Weatherford performed the ceremony at another church, but the situation isn't sitting well with other members of the congregation, who say they were completely unaware of the situation. Member Casey Kitchens shared her thoughts:

This is a small, small group of people who made a terrible decision. I'm just ashamed right now that my church would do that. I can't fathom why. How unfair. How unjust. It's just wrong.

YouTube musician Mike Lombardo -- a Berklee College of Music grad whose piano rock ballads and tutorials earned him 200,000 subscribers -- has been arrested by the FBI for encouraging minors to send him explicit photos and videos of themselves masturbating.

FBI Agent Alix Skelton said the investigation began after a complaint alleged Lombardo was planning to have sex with a 15-year-old girl in December 2011. The FBI spoke to two other girls, both 17, who told agents that they had exchanged sexually explicit photos and videos with Lombardo.

"All three victims advised that they 'met' Lombardo online because they were fans of his music," Skelton wrote.

According to Skelton, one victim was 14 "when she began sending nude images and videos of herself to Lombardo via Skype." Skelton said the teen said that Lombardo asked her if she "liked taking orders" and would ask the girl to "strip until she was completely nude." Once she was naked, Lombardo would allegedly direct the child to masturbate.

Lombardo has been charged on four different counts. If convicted, he could spend anywhere from five to 100 years in prison.

Just because seagulls are the pigeons of the sea doesn't mean they should be fed laxatives so they can rain on everyone's parade.

Since Friday's massacre at a Colorado movie theater that killed 12, a number of Facebook pages have popped up paying tribute to alleged shooter James Holmes.

The largest and most horrifying page, written as if by Holmes himself, was launched Friday, before many of the victims had even been identified. The frequent posts are intended to shock -- they mock the victims of the shooting, and one includes a Photoshopped image of Holmes receiving the Medal of Honor from President Obama.

Now, four days later, the page remains active, despite numerous requests to Facebook to shut it down:

The anonymous author of the fan page has commented on nearly every photo and is often ridiculing people who are expressing their disgust at the page that many have commented, "goes too far" and is "too soon." He also has posted a note that says the page has been reported numerous times to Facebook and "nothing has happened." It's not possible to tell how often or if the page has been flagged by other users, but it features comments from thousands of Facebook users who are calling for its deletion using profanity-laced language and threats to the faux Facebook Holmes.

Still, it's heartening that most of the reactions have been negative. Here's the best Facebook comment, as judged by Denver blogger Michael Roberts:

The amount of comments against this kind of humor is actually a positive thing. I'm glad that although many people cannot spell or use grammar, they are still not as f**ked up as I thought Americans were. ♥ oh and whoever made this page needs to be sterilized.

Upscale online retailer Celeb Boutique gets a big ol' "Seriously?!" for this tweet.

After mounting criticism, the company apologized, but the damage has been done.

From HyperVocal:

We'd love to give these people the benefit of the doubt, but if you make mention of a hashtag, CHANCES ARE YOU CLICKED ON THAT HASHTAG to see what the fuss was about. And the winky face? Oh, that winky face.
