Beating your kids for God

The Christians who beat their kids are only following the instructions given to them by God.

The Bible is very clear on this point. In fact the Christians who do not give their kids a sound thrashing every day are surely snubbing their own God.

Lets see what the Bible says about beating your children:-

Deuteronomy 21:20-21 And they shall say unto 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. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
There you have it. Stubborn kids must be stoned to death. problem solved.
Proverbs 13:24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
So, If you really really love your children, you must thrash them within an inch of their lives every day.
Proverbs 19:18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
Even if they are screaming with pain, you must be strong and keep hitting them.
Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
Amazing... If you beat your kids with a stick, It cures stupidity. So if you Christians want clever kids.... you know what to do.
Proverbs 23:13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
Don't worry about them dying from your beatings, just let 'em have it as hard as you like.
Proverbs 23:14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
You see, smashing your kids in the face with a baseball bat actually saves them from going to Hell.

 Well, what more can I add. God seems to be really enthusiastic about torturing little children, he's so keen that he instructs his people to be as violent as they like, as often as they like towards their own children. Don't worry about killing them, in fact executing your stubborn children is seen as the morally correct thing to do.

Why are all you Christian parents sat here reading this stupid post. Why not go out into the tool shed and get a good solid garden shovel, then sneak up to the kids room while they are asleep, then beat them senseless with the shovel. God says it will save them from Hell and that this is the correct thing to do if you really love them.

Once again, the Bible proves itself to be full of wisdom.

Think this is a joke?

Take a look at the real life victims of Biblical thinking:-
Christian Parents Biblically Beat Child to Death for Mispronouncing Word

The book that's leading parents to Kill

By Rev. Marie Fortune

The Insanity of Fundamentalist Christian child abuse

From the "Ask an Atheist" Podcast:
Please Listen to the 2nd interview with Jerry (Disturbing)

The Phrase "He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." is a translation of the Hebrew Phrase "chasak shebet sane' ben 'ahab muwcar shachar"

The Hebrew word "shebet" is a rod or a staff. Moses carried his shebet everywhere, he waved it at the sea, he often held it aloft to the heavens. It is a long walking stick. It can also mean the shaft of a spear. A shebet is also a club carried by shepherds to dispatch lame animals.  A shebet was also a Truncheon, a mace or a sceptre or a staff of office. The Bible speaks of beating your slave to death with a "shebet". So, we know a shebet was a nasty weapon capable of causing death.

I have raised 2 children, I can honestly say I have NEVER hit my children. I have not raised my hand to them. I have never even threatened to hit my children... And yet they were both straight "A" students. Dedicated to their respective studies. They are street wise, they are keen on sport and art. They don't swear, fight, do drugs, get drunk or sleep around. How do Christians explain this without the use of physical violence to discipline them.

Why do Christians feel it is necessary to inflict violence on their own children? If I was in a store and I witnessed someone being rude, I wouldn't hit them to explain it's wrong to be rude or disrespectful.  If I saw a confused old lady walking into the middle of a busy road. I wouldn't explain it was wrong by hitting her, especially not with a stick or a club.  I would be arrested for assault if I went around hitting people who I believed were doing something they shouldn't. So why on Earth would I inflict exactly the same violence on my own flesh and blood when they do something they shouldn't.

This is the difference between my secular beliefs and their religious beliefs. Christians are taught that violence is not only acceptable but it is highly desirable. In the above Biblical phrase "betimes" (Hebrew "shachar") means that you should diligently look for occasions to beat your children and beat them as soon as possible.

Discipline does not mean HITTING people. I like to see the projects I manage at work run smoothly and this requires disciplined and motivated staff. I do not motivate and discipline my staff by HITTING them with a stick ... Not even with a corrective smack.

As for bringing up children, I've found that good parenting worked much better than violence. Violence begets violence, Christians are teaching their children that it's acceptable to modify another person's behaviour 
or to make them do what you want them to do by violent means... By hitting them. Their children go on to perpetuate the cycle of violence by teaching their children the same principles of behavior modification.

If anyone needs to be beaten with a "shebet", It's the parents. The kind of parent that believes the Bible gives good parenting advice.
