How to beat up your child

This is Pastor Michael Pearl, writer of “To train up a child” explaining what the best ways are to abuse your kid if he/she behaves “ungodly”

If you’re still crying, I’m gonna give you something to cry about

Psychological abuse is completely fine according to this man but the main method is physical abuse and the use of the rod.

Proverbs 23:

13 Do not withhold discipline from a child;
if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.
14 Punish them with the rod
and save them from death.

The rod is usually a plumbing device that you should keep everywhere, including the car in case you need it on the road. This is all for the purpose of “training”. If the lad won’t stay still, you should put your leg on his back to hold him down and do it until he looses all his will, and then you can start training using your favorite method. If we’re talking about a baby that misbehaves then it’s completely fine to pull it’s hair or ears. The reason? Pain is important because the world is full of pain.

This is child abuse and it has to stop now.

There have been cases of people who followed this devil’s book who ended up killing their children. One example is this case and these are the people involved:

Kevin Shatz and Ellizabeth Shatz killed their 7 year old daughter using a rod because she had failed to pronounce a word correctly. Yes, that’s right. Murdered for not pronouncing one word right. The girl’s parents whipped her for hours causing massive tissue damage that resulted in her death.

“It was torture,” says Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey. The girl’s sister was also allegedly beaten with tubing. She survived.

I wonder what happened to her sister. Losing pretty much your whole family this way must be one of the toughest experiences an infant or adolescent can go through, and all this for what? What good do you get out of this? If beating a kid is so effective, then why does it not work the first time? Why do these people do it over and over and over again and never get the expected results? IT DOES NOT WORK!

Below is a CNN report on this case:

This is not the only case though. There are more recorded cases on which parent’s killed their kids using advise from that book. Larry and Carri Williams starved their daughter to death. This is what they look like:

A couple accused of starving their adopted 13-year-old Ethiopian-born daughter and locking her outside in the cold, where she died from exposure, pleaded not guilty on Thursday to homicide and child abuse charges

That’s right. They pleaded not guilty. Shame on them for existing.

It is a known fact that abused children have their self esteem destroyed and it is a known fact that abused children grow up to be abusers in many cases and are also prone to obesity, heart disease, cancer, depression and other chronic health problems as adults . This cycle has to be broken, it is time to stop barbaric methods as a form of “moral education”.

About spagmonster

The spagmonster is an ex fundy who was raised as a conservative Christian. His father was a preacher and the owner of the churches he would attend when growing up, so he got to see everything from the inside. After being exposed to real world knowledge and science, the spagmonster slowly started to become a non believer in mainstream religions until he started this blog. That´s when he sat down and thought ¨Huh... I think I´m an atheist¨. The deconversion process was complete. Cheers!
