Nothing and I mean nothing gets my blood boiling more than religious corporal punishment. I caught another installment of Anderson Coopers Ungodly Discipline segment on TV, I then watched more on youtube and learned about The Independent Fundamentalist Baptists or IFB. After listening to the stories from 'survivors' told and hearing about those who did not survive their godly punishment. After my initial rage I thought this: Why in America are these religious institutions or cults given so much deferential treatment when it comes to the law of the United States. So called boarding schools that are religious cannot ever be regulated by any organization other than themselves. Ask anyone on the street in the most conservative states and no one will condone abuse of children, yet many of them willingly attend such churches like IFB that on a regular basis demands corporal punishment, because if you spare the rod you "hate your child". It is my view that the Bible and the other 2 main religious texts themselves that are responsible for the vast amount of child abuse that happens in almost every Christian/Muslim denomination throughout the world, I believe in fact the Bible, the Torah and the Koran are the source you can't condemn the individual or church without condemning the those so-called holy books as well.

It is a crazy world in deed. When men of evil defend them selves and their atrocities with so called good books.
