Woman abuses son - claims freedom of religion
Lovely. Just freaking lovely.

Washington Post Link

Quote:The 7-year-old boy had a total of 36 deep purple bruises across his back, on his arm and on his thigh.

He had a loop mark on his ear that, court records say, was from the small hook of a plastic hanger that his mother had used to beat him.

When the boy’s elementary school teacher patted him on the back, he flinched. The state Department of Child Services was then called to the Indianapolis school.

Thaing, 30, has been charged with battery on a person less than 14 years old and neglect of a dependent, both of which are felonies. In August, a judge denied her request to dismiss the charges.

In July, Thaing had asked for the charges to be dismissed. Her reason: Indiana’s religious freedom law protects her from prosecution, she claimed.

Enacted last year, Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act says the government must first prove a compelling interest before it intrudes on someone’s religious liberty, and it must do so in the least restrictive way.

Thaing’s case, according to Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, is the first time the new religious freedom law has been cited to justify punishing a child.

Her Christian beliefs were the “guiding values” that influenced her behavior when she punished her son on Feb. 3, according to the motion to dismiss filed by her attorney, Greg Bowes.

It also cited verses from Proverbs 23:13-14: “Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol.”

I can't wait to hear the theists' responses.

Guess what? If you follow the bible, she is correct.

Gotta love those biblical family values.

So if someone will beat shit out of her and claim that it was done for religious reasons there will be no punishment?

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

This is an ideal case for the punishment being precisely equal to the crime.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Certainly won't be the last...

I'll buy it, just as soon as someone murders her (read:saves her soul) for her poly-cotton blend shirt. Fucking stupid cunt...
