"We see it across the animal kingdom all animals discipline their young

Nuff said. The man is an animal.

"I said beat your child. Not beat it to death!" Won't tear the skin is key here. Bitch needs the buckle of the belt back again? The people who usually are looking for direction sometimes get the wrong map.

The Pearls are a menace to society. I wonder if they also advocate beating horses and dogs as part of their training.

James Dobbson has a similar approach. I can't be bothered to dig up links because the whole thing disgusts me.

Children are imperfect defenseless creatures, and this Pearl guy is a barbarian. I wouldn't mind seeing him get "trained up" by Wanderlei Silva for 10 minutes in the cage. No pads.

"“Neither one of these cases springs from our book,” Pearl exclaimed. “How could a book that teaches love and grace and kindness cause that….It couldn’t!"

Don't feel too bad, I'm sure a long haired guy who tried to teach us to love one another couldn't possibly end up inspiring people to hate another group of people for reasons beyond their control either!

We take the "explain it to the child until they will do what you ask just to get you to go away" approach.

Seems to work.

I will confess that I slapped my children's hands if they reached for the stove when they were toddlers. We've always had gas stoves, which get very hot very quickly.

The real reason Pearl recommends flexible rods that won't break the skin: so teachers and neighbors won't ask questions.

I know a homeskoolng mom that took that child "rehabilitation" thing to the heart, lost one of her kids via state intervention, one ran away, and the other was out of the house soon after because he reached legal age.

On the witness stand she claimed she was a victim for her religious beliefs and said, out of court, that liberals were to blame because they hated religion and dominated the justice system.

No, bitch, rational people without God delusions just aren't fond of child beaters that babble in tongues while wailing on a juvenile with a horse whip. It's pretty fucking simple like that.

re: #9 theheat

And I'm not fond of assholes and dominionists wailing on horses with horse whips, either. / added

Research has pretty well established that BEATING CHILDREN IS AN INEFFECTIVE DISCIPLINARY TOOL. In fact it seems to encourage bad behavior. Course we know how much respect fundies have for research, evidence and facts.

It is the Pearls who are reading the wrong set of instructions:

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6, KJV

re: #12 Winston Smith, Fox News Moderator

It is the Pearls who are reading the wrong set of instructions:

This passage doesn't talk about child beatings, though.
And KJV is misleading for the modern eye.

NIV: But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
NASB: but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

They can actually argue they're protecting them from stumbling into sin.
Proverbs, on the other hand, advocates physical punishment quite explicitly.
