Quote# 35659

I got the belt and no problems here. We used the belt one time on my almost 6 year old daughter for being soooo defiant one day several months ago. Afterwards we felt so bad that we never did it again, it really bruised her behind. But we still do spank and use a silicone spatula for the times she really acts up. The bible does say this is the best way to discipline a child and I agree....having been thru it myself, i deserved every whippin I got I am glad my parents were strict with me because I think I turned into a good person

Really? You whipped a six year old? Nice.

These people talk about spankings a lot... It's rather disconcerting. Only a couple of people on that message board have pointed out that since spanking can be (is) abusive that people should use other (non-violent) ways to discipline a child.
Some of them seem obsessed with it, thinking it's the only way to go or something. They have systematic ways of doing it, saying that if a child does such-and-such, they'll get so many spanks. And they claim they do it 'in love.' Just... Reading all that is creepy.

I don't think that TravisandJill have an high enough IQ to use non-physical punishment.

There is a huge ass diference between believing and being.

Although I believe a smack can be handy (One smack to get attention) Beating a kid with a belt or a spatula is incredibly evil.

I hope when she grows up she stuffs you in the most abusive old age home she can find, then reaps the financial reward of your death.

And did you idiots ever think that you've misinterpreted the bible? Maybe the rod was a shepherds rod, that they guide the sheep with? Nah, that would take the fun out of it wouldn't it.

The worst part about this is Family Services can't touch them because of "Freedom of Religion" (if they know how to play the game right).

That site is sick

Congratulations! You put your almost 6-year-old daughter on the path to becoming another fucked up fundie.

stronger now

Ssshhhh. No one tell 'em that the bible says you got to stone your child for being rebellious.

I was spanked with a belt and I turned out an atheist that doesn't have anything to do with my god fearin' family.

You all must be a bunch of emo pussies.

Ach! The legendary Fundies Comment Troll! ...Emo pussies? Right, so we're emo for saying life ISN'T a pointless race to the grave. *Eyeroll.*

I'm a liberal with three college degrees who turned out very well adjusted.

You just called a bunch of random people "emo pussies," I don't care how many college degrees you got &/or lied about, you are NOT "well-rounded."

And I was spanked. And I plan on spanking my children, too.

GREAT, prepare the new generation of Fundie fucks for US to deal with, asshole.

Suck it pussies.

Either you're only like 14 and a very poor troll, or you REALLY like to prove your own immaturity. Taking all bets!

Yeah, the ol' child abuse for jeebus bit. Nice.

Don't no one say hitting your kid for being bad is child abuse! I got hit when I was young, and now (at 14) my spirit is totally broken. I never break my parents' rules, and the biggest trouble I have been in for 2 years was for yelling in school...It really does work.

There is a huge difference between beating your children and punishing them. Fear is a great tool (although it works much better when you're the one people fear). How do you think religion got this far?

3/2/2008 1:52:33 AM


You're posting on Rapture Ready. You are eagerly awaiting the end of the world.

Therefore, I disagree with your assessment.

3/2/2008 1:53:37 AM

cool cats

Hey stupid fundie, if I ever meet your kid I would like to teach her some self defence techniques that would make you regret ever beating her. You don't necessarily need physical strength to do some serious damage.

3/2/2008 1:54:57 AM


'Course, it's not unexpected that they would depend on terror to keep their children in line. It's what their Holy Father does as well.

3/2/2008 1:55:12 AM


How good a person can you be if you're bruising your children?

I deserved every spanking I got (which was, what, half a dozen in my life?), because my parents never legitimately hurt me. Not taking their parental instruction from a polygamous, Bronze Age tyrant, they actually thought about how they were affecting their kids.

They realized spanking should bbruise the ego more than the bottom. You see, being rational and loving, they decided rather than beat up their kids, they would establish it as a seldom-used result for getting seriously out of line. One swat. One bratty fanny. Then off to the room till I could act my age.

F'r fuck's sake, you can't beat somebody into moral improvement. Pain and suffering don't improve an individual. Spanking only works when it's a threat to be avoided for serious transgression, not an inevitable result of any unwelcome behavior.

And you use implements? Jebus. Try using your hand. If it starts to hurt, guess what? You're a child abuser!

"I am glad my parents were strict with me because I think I turned into a good person" Who advocates the beating of children. You do know that according to your bible, you are supposed to stone them to death for disobedience don't you? Just beating them isn't enough.

there's a line between smackin a kid to get their attention and giving a savage beating, my mom splashed a glass of water in my face any time I threw a tantrum and I ended up throwing the tantrum quietly

And Saint Attila raised the silicone spatula up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy silicone spatula that with it Thou mayest spank Thine offspring into submission, in Thy mercy." And the Lord did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu... [At this point, the friar is urged by Brother Maynard to "skip a bit, brother"]... And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the silicone spatula, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy silicone spatula of Antioch towards thy children, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

"I think I turned into a good person"

Wrong, so wrong.

3/2/2008 2:27:21 AM

You are a pathetic excuse for a parent.

Septic Sceptic

I'm not a parent, but wouldn't helping a defiant five year old understand that the rules are in place for their own good make more sense than bludgeoning them with a foreign object until they're in too much pain to put up a fight any more?

Love the way they say "my almost 6 year old daughter" as though adding a year will make it less brutal. The kid was five, and you inlicted physical pain on her when she dared to show some innocent rebellion and push the rules to find out why they are the way they are.

Hey- garden of Eden parallel!

That one RR thread alone could keep FSTDT in quotes for weeks. I particularly liked

Spank them early and often if you want your kids to stay away from sex.(waving smiley)

and this one from 'Tom'

Man, my elementary school principal could recognize me in the grocery store 7years later ... as long as I was bent over getting something off the bottom shelf.

"Oh, it's YOU", he says.."I didn't recognize you standing straight up".
Yea' cause he wore my bottom out more times than I could count...

Seriously, surely that the punishment had to be repeated so often is proof it didn't work?

Dear what?,
You may be able to beat episode one of forumwarz, but that does not mean you are an actual, capable troll. Real trolling is an art form and requires a knowledge of just who it is you are dealing with. If you lack that knowledge, you might do something silly like call a board full of people well beyond college age "emo." And a site such as this, dedicated to picking at stupidity, is also quite good at ignoring it. So, good try, but in the end, you lose, good day, sir.

3/2/2008 3:28:28 AM


Wow, what a coincidence. I just read an article today about how just spanking your child alone can cause risky sexual behavior, and agression towards your spouse and your own children :D

You sick fuck, belts were made to hold our pants up, and spatulas are meant to flip burgers! They are NOT meant to hit a child! You sicken me.

And actually, the Bible says you're supposed to STONE your child to death.

3/2/2008 4:02:57 AM

In all honesty, I'm actually glad of what I'm reading here... only because when they said belt, I first thought "chastity belt" on a 6 years old and my brain did a 360.

3/2/2008 4:31:40 AM

you are a vile individual and I pity your poor little girl.

3/2/2008 5:00:52 AM

That you are able to treat so badly a six years old demonstrates actually the opposite.
