Well, on one hand it's a religious leader, and they don`t seem to have such a great track record these days.
On the other hand when it says he "lightly hurt" his daughter and she had "superficial injuries" it doesn`t exactly sound like the dude beat the daylights out of her.
Cases like this very much appear to be mostly about self-righteous individuals looking for an excuse to force their beliefs regarding corporal punishment off on others rather than about said people actually believing what he did was abusive, especially if the "injuries" inflicted were as light as they sound.
My personal belief is that physical discipline should be an absolute last resort and should be avoided if at all possible, but I also firmly believe that people should have the right to act as they wish as long as they don`t impact others. Imo that extends to childcare, and the law should only step in when it`s obvious a child is, or could be put in, ser

@Hedkwab Oh look, another terrible parent who refuses to discipline their child. There's a difference between `beating your child` and physical discipline. There are some situations where physical discipline is the only option, and it has a lot to do with the specific child. Was what happened in this video physical discipline or child abuse? Who knows?
