Wow... that is pretty damn sad.

Wait... aren't the Christian women supposed to listen to their husbands? Err... either follow the damn book, or don't!
Really? I've never heard of that. Where does it say that?
The full quote is this:

"1 Corinthians 7:4 -- The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does"

but where does it say that men must be submissive to her? And doesnt the above quote merely specify that a woman should submit to her husband and that he should not exploit that submission?I dont think it means that a man be submissive like is expected of the woman. Obviously if they expect him to be the 'head' then that is above the one who isnt still putting him above the woman. Its about the same 'responsibility' as that of master to slave.
That is just nuts! I guess he wasn't the man of the house!!!
"Without or without religion there are good people doing good things and bad people doing bad things. It takes religion for a good person to do bad things."
That's pretty fucked up that they beat the man to death just to look a some lame ass gospel shit! Is it really that serious?
It might be evil, but it sure is ok with the "good" book... Deuteronomy 13:6-10 kinda covers this one lol

Whoever said people were peaceful? I expect there is a correlation between dysfunctional people and faith but this family sound well wierd.
