I wish more kids would get their asses spanked. I`m tired of this BS reasoning thing going on, where I have to listen to you yell at your kid and try to negotiate with him as to why he shouldn`t be damaging my store`s property, or annoying half of my shoppers.

I`m not christian, but was raised that way, and I`ll say that yes, spanking and discipline work. I was spanked with a belt. It wasn`t a common occurance but when it happened I deserved it and I learned my lesson. More kids need that.

That being said, there is definitely a line beyond which it goes from a form of discipline to something outrageously excessive. Listen to this article hell, I wouldn`t even complain about the book that the tennessee couple wrote.

Those parents "discipline" ran about 6 hours and 55 minutes longer then could possibly have been necessary. 7 hours of beatings? blaming that crap on the authors of a book is merely trying to shift blame from the fact that they were outrageously overzealous and/or sadistic.

not every christian family does this. So it would be unfair to say "Religion is a mental disorder"
as if to say every religious person does this. I am a single woman who has not yet had a child. But I often think of how I would raise my child if I were to get married and have one, and it is difficult to figure out, however I know that if God would bless me with a marriage and a child that I would try to do what is best for them and hurting them doesn`t seem like the best for them. However my mom disciplined us when we did something wrong, I never got more than a belt beating, and I learned my lessons quickly, and I grew up having love for God and my mom.

Call all the bullsh*t you want, that doesn`t change the results of the polls that have consistently shown most Fox news viewers to be, at best, average in terms of political knowledge. And that`s when compared with people who didn`t watch or read news at all.

Bill O`Reilly being pretty much the only exception, and I can understand why. He`s fairly respectable overall.

Links please. With all the liberal bias, it`s pretty easy to see how Murdoch`s company was involved. I haven`t seen anything about other British papers that aren`t owned by News International.

Altaru: Apparently you only read the beginning of the scandal and not the rest of it. That`s not your fault, people`s eyes turn to other newer things. It was not just Murdoch`s companies that where involved, that`s a falsehood. Nearly ever paper in Britain is being investigated and it turns out most of them were hacking phones and bribing police and that it`s been going on for decades.

The problem here was that so many liberal papers sought for so long and worked so hard on trying to find some sort of dirt on Murdoch that they all exploded at once with sensationalist, and mostly false, headlines. That sir is journalism at it`s worst and ugliest, pointing crooked fingers at someone`s dirty laundry when their own laundry is dirtier and piled to the ceiling.

That has nothing to do with the fact that, despite the conservatives whining about it louder, liberals aren`t the only ones with agendas.

Duh. The majority of mass media outlets are liberally biased. I wasn`t saying otherwise.

That doesn`t cover up the fact that it was a conservative biased organization that pulled the stunt with hacking cell phones, or that viewers of Faux news and it`s associates tend to be poorly informed on politics compared to viewers of liberally biased programs, or that News Corp. has been shown REPEATEDLY to outright LIE to it`s viewers to spin the story.

Yelling "tu quoque!" at the liberals doesn`t make you right. It just means that you`re no better than them.

What these parents are doing IS bone fide sociopathism. It would be no different with an atheist or muslim or whathaveyou. The bible is written in the language of man according to our customs. Spare the Rod and spoil the child taken in the context of 1st century living is quite simple. Actually beating kids with a belt stopped happening only recently. This passage was NEVER intended as child abuse but this is what we see when we consider spanking. It would serve one to learn about history before trying to apply their ideas against the Bible. Believe me. The Bible is smarter than you.

"You walked into that trap, MrPeabody...

You`re now arguing that verses in the bible don`t apply any more because the circumstances of modern life in many places (such as your country and mine) are very different to the circumstances of life 2-3000 years ago in Judea."

You are wrong yet again, and most likely trolling because you are purposefully simplifying the circumstances and ignoring what is stated to support your agenda. The circumstances which you are stating those laws could be applied are not the same as what is written, and most likely the elders of that day would send you away.

Claiming divine authority for their actions. Believing that you have the ultimate authority for your actions makes it far, far easier to commit atrocities on any scale. If the ultimate authority approves of your actions, you have absolutely no need to have any consideration of morality at all. An atheist would have to be a bona fide sociopath to act like that, but a theist doesn`t.

Yeah, but most (if not all, I can`t remember all the ones involved) were owned by News International, which is a subsidiary of News Corp., which is the company that owns Fox and is owned by Rupert Murdoch.

Fox itself may not have been involved, but it`s still just another show of how shameless and pathetic the companies under Murdoch`s control can get, and that doesn`t just develop on it`s own. It comes from the leadership, especially when the leadership has a pretty clear agenda in mind.

And no, the liberals aren`t the only ones with agendas in case you didn`t know. The conservatives are just the ones that bitch more about it.

"Do you seriously believe that, for example, a student who goes partying often and drinks too much alcohol while doing so (hardly unusual for a student) should be killed by their parents?"

Look who`s redefining things. You conveniently ignore the whole part about it being brought before the elders for inquiry, and that the whole community is involved in carrying out the sentence.

And your argument about drunken students is at the very least not well thought out. At the time this was written, there weren`t any students or schools (as we have now). There were limited resources. A son who was being a douche bag could seriously impact the well being of a family and affect the community. It`s just not as simplistic as you would make it seem, but nice try.

It`s OK, because God wanted her dead. God told us so. Therefore, it was for her own good.

For the sake of argument, insert "Mr. Snuffleupagus" or the name of any other imaginary friend in place of "God".

I don`t believe generalizing is right at all, and I know there are many christian families that do not act this way. What happened in this video is absolutely terrible and the sad part is that the Christians that do believe "spare the rod, spoil the child" will not take a lesson from this. Anybody, if they are in the mindframe to, will beat their child. Its not religion related.

I think its wrong to put everyone who is religious into one category. Big news corporations like CNN and fox news lost my respect a long time ago anyway when I realized that they only focus on what their parent companies or corporate sponsors want them to talk about. Did fox report on Rupert Murdoch?

No, it doesn`t.

You`re redefining words to justify torturing people to death for trivial or relatively minor things.

Do you seriously believe that, for example, a student who goes partying often and drinks too much alcohol while doing so (hardly unusual for a student) should be killed by their parents?

While i believe that the violent acts enforced in the levitical law are abhorrent, i think that this was an unfair representation of the intent of the Bible and the book written by the farmer. Just because someone does something evil and it is linked to an idea does not make the idea inherently evil. Besides, there are better proofs of the evils represented in the bible. There`s no reason to wrongly portray it just to pander to the people who already believe it`s wrong.

Exo 21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

You cited this verse, but you fail to realize that smiteth means to seriously injure or cause death. Also this is not speaking of young children.

Look 3 verses down
Exo 21:18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:
Exo 21:19 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

This is talking about injuries serious enough to cause the injured to die or be bed ridden, not just a smack in the head.

"when the book specifically states that people could stone their children to dead if they were unruly?"

It does not say that.

Deuteronomy 21:18-21 says that after the parents have chastised (reproved, punished etc.) their son, if the son does not correct his behavior (rebellion, gluttony, drunkenness), they are to be brought before the elders of the city. Both parents would have to make an accusation before the elders, which means there would be an inquiry, and if the elders deemed it necessary the men of the city would stone the son. This by the way is not speaking of a young child as children are not gluttons (at least in that society they were not) or drunkards.

Most sheeple just focus on whats being fed to them, and not the source of the crap, and it doesn`t take a genius to figure that out either. It`s the fact that a story like this is aired and it has the word christian in the title and the people are claiming to be following the the bible all of a sudden its time to bash the christians. It`s like that idiot in the video saying they did because of that book that hick wrote.

Your Christian upbringing is the standard for what qualifies as "Christian"? These people certainly would argue that they upheld Christian values, and when the Bible instructs it`s followers to kill unruly children I have to agree that they indeed upheld Christian values. Who are you to say they aren`t Christian? There is no anti Christian liberal agenda you loon. Bible says to stone unruly children, these parents kill unruly child and somehow the left is twisting that into anti-Christian? If it looks like, feels like and smells like crap, it doesn`t take a genius to realize it is crap.

Learn just how evil your religion is. What is written on that site IS GODS WORD. Sure, most of it is probably the old testament, but ALL of that is still gods point of view. Which is why, given the chance, I would gladly kill your god and put him down like the dog that he is. He`s just plain evil.

I agree and disagree with this. Although it is totally wrong to kill a child, or even severely hurt them with spanking. I think children should be spanked; I was spanked as a kid, and acted like an angel. Other kids today, sometime time-out just doesn`t work.

I am sorry. I always make the mistake of jumping to the conclusion that what people write is what they meant. I guess "spanking is illegal to restrained parents and why crime rate goes up" doesn`t explicitly state that you think crime rates have increased due to the lack of spanking. I also guess making definitive statements like "crime rate goes up" is not attempting to state a fact, but me stating "crime rate in America is the lowest it has been in half a century" is somehow different.

Don`t back peddle, you are embarrassing yourself.

You make absolutely no sense at all. But it`s okay. I`ma let you talk.

I made a reference that the ways to parent a child are either being heavily restricted, and parents are either two heavy handed or too soft handed.

I think a controlled spanking is alright. And the spankings I received as a child certainly made me learn my lesson. I think they`re an acceptable form of discipline if done right and correctly that doesn`t cause permanent damage both mentally and physically.

I was referencing to the fact that -these- parents are the reason why good parents are afraid to discipline their child in today`s society.

Before you preach about getting facts straight, perhaps you should figure out what -I- meant exactly.

P.S. Before you say I don`t know the facts, neither do you. Keep that in mind. And by the way? My comments are all opinions. None of which I have expressly claimed to be pure fact, unlike your comments.

It doesn`t matter if you said all time high or crime rates go up, both are wrong. I didn`t realize that pointing out misinformation is being "holier than thou." And that is great that you "somehow doubt that," but the fact is you don`t know, yet you are willing to try to draw a link between crime rates and not spanking children because you obviously defend spanking children. Do some actual research on spanking and crime rates instead of spreading this notion that things are getting worse because parents don`t spank their children.

“If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they discipline him, will not listen to them, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives, and they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This our son is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones. So you shall purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

Violence against children is wrong. No matter how you look at it. All manner of violence! , be it a smack on the behind or beating with a belt. Should teachers beat their students? Should your boss beat you when you do something stupid?
It infuriates me that people are saying that a little bit is ok, because it`s not. What the hell is wrong with you if you cant discipline your child without beating them?
BTW= The argument "it was done to me and i turned out fine" is in my opinion very sad. Be a better generation of parents, don`t repeat the mistakes of the past out of spite.

You know, I`m not against spanking your kids. I was, and I tell you what, I learned never to do those things again. That doesn`t mean you should beat your kids though. A quick smack on the butt goes a long way.

@Lazyme484 If I came across as that sorry, I wasn`t trying to be funny. I`m just baffled at how that makes sense to anyone. Which it evidently does to quite a lot of people "660000 copies sold". :O

Aye, it doesn`t make sense at all. It`s almost like a joke the way it illustrates total hypocrisy. Except it`s not a very funny joke, not because it involves violence but because it`s just too simple. Laughing at it is like laughing at a "chicken crossed the road" thing.

You cannot train a horse, a dog, or a child with violence and cruelty. Parents who use this kind of method to rear their children are just sadists trying to put a nice face on. Intolerable behaviour.

One could easily argue that it wasn`t. Think about it.

But I`m still against the death penalty in all cases, so we agree on the punishment in the end.

Wait 22 and 12 for beating a kid to death?? Is that what they got for a guilty plea or is it pending?

So...beat your child to show them that violence is bad and should never be used.
Yup, makes a LOT of sense.
I was never spanked or beat as a child. If I was having a tantrum in public my parents would ignore me until I stopped. Or sent me to my room if it was at home.
I did have my mouth washed out with soap though...

"Put them on death row"

Manslaughter really isn`t a death row offense. You yourself are fully capable of accidentally beating me to death. This WAS an accident, almost entirely due to ignorance, but an accident nonetheless. Meanwhile, you can`t argue manslaughter against a child is worse than that against an adult unless you want to start down a path of "The younger they are, the more severe the punishment for the accused should be." which does nothing but justify abortion clinic bombings.

20yrs really should`ve been the floor for both the parents though.

Religious or not, if you kill your child, you deserve the same fate. Put them on death row so they can stop wasting my oxygen, f*cking scum

It would be the black girl that they murder.

There`s a huge difference between disciplining and beating. And there`s a huge difference between the tolerance levels of a child and a horse.

So children bickering isn`t acceptable in society, but beating your kids regularly is. Sounds logical to me.

Obvious anti-religion troll post.
Plenty of non-religious people have beaten their kids to death also.

But I`m so in favor of the downfall of religion that I`m okay with obvious troll posts :) Keep it up IAB!

Sorry, but this is just murder, which is against biblical teaching. These people were not following Christian principles. No where does it say beat your children to death.

I love the example the interviewer used "boy slugs his brother" but we missed out on the rebuttal question. "Doesn`t it seem hypocrital to teach a child it is not acceptable to hit someone by hitting them?"
