Are all the fundamentalists insane?
Isn't that redundant?
these people belong in jail and should have there children taken and put into good homes.look up a serial killer named Albert Fish. his "liking" for punishment started in a religious orphanage.
he ended up being executed for killing and eating children.
thank you, religion.
I think you would have to be pretty out there to think a 2 month old is acting out or trying to get your goat or manipulate you in any way.
I hope they can teach these parents some new coping skills, because I don't think foster homes are that great either. As a parent, I think these people have crossed the line. I imagine their kids are well behaved, because if they're not they're going to get "their hides tanned" as my folks used to say.
your spot on.
gota understand. we are not only up against there book, we are also up against all of the commentary, exegesis, explanations, and expounding of this book through the ages that has become intrinsically linked to that belief system.
there are a lot of things that people believe are part of the book but it comes from all the "messing about" with the explanations etc...
most people dont know the difference. but its not from belligerence...its from actually believing all the "extra" crap that has been written about the book and never bothering to investigate themselves.
or justifying it all by telling themselves that it all just further explained what was written.
Proverbs 13:24: "He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (diligently)."
Meh, close enough I'd say.
