Bible-Based Beatings of Children


Recommended Posts

A movement within Evangelical churches to beat and starve children into Bible-sanctioned submission to the will of the parents has begun gaining ground within the right-wing. Children have been murdered when beaten or starved and the killers are claiming their pastors advised them to based on the three-thousand year-old practices of a small tribe of goat-herders in a desert in the Middle East. This article on Salon.com infuriates me. Children should be loved, not beaten into submission. I don't object to a tap on the butt occassially, but beatings, starvation, "breaking the will of the disobediant child" is unforgivable.
