Quote# 4358

What about this, you have just come across a father beating his child are you going to abuse him(the father) and take away his rights like he is doing to the child... How is it moral you ask, is it moral that two wrongs make a right

It's not wrong to stop someone from beating his child. The father doesn't have that right.

Proper defense of another, like self-defense, is considered a valid and lawful reason to attack someone. Calling it \"taking away his rights\" is absurd in the extreme.

Oh, but don't overlook Haylow's simultaneously scary and hilariously illiterate defense of his 'I can beat my child as much as I want' stance:

Taking away parents rights is also abuse you condone society to abuse parents but condem parents for abuseing there children, what you think if someone came to my home and took away my children that act would not cause me harm.
children have as much recourse as i have to society when it comes to being treated unfairly i put my case to society if it dosen't agree with me that its treating me unfairly i have to cop it sweet.
Society works on the same princeables as a family because thats all it is a large family.
If society can sentance one of its mebers to death for wrong doing then parents have the same right to do the same to one of there family members for wrong doing.
As a parent i have a responseablity to raise that child as i see best, to consider other peoples opinions but never to be forced to raise MY children by others opinions because of that i am the FINAL authority, your opinions are of disrespect to me

Wonder how often the police are called out to his house?

How can you say it's moral to let the father do that to a kid. God you fundies are so uptight about fetuses but once the child is born you don't give a shit what happens to it.

That is, until it turns 18 and we can send it to go fight in some unjustified war..

The father's rights ends where the child's begins. The child has a right not to be beaten to a pulp. He has no right to abuse another human being.

"Take away his rights"?!

I'm inclined to break his fucking arms.

How exactly is it wrong to stop somebody from hurting another person?

Your right to swing your arms around wildly ends where the other fellow's nose begins. Nobody has a right to attack another person except in self-defense or defense of an innocent.

Define 'beating'

If it's the same as my understanding then: Hell yes

Beating a child: wrong.
Taking away the child from his parents, for no reason: wrong.
Taking children away from abusive parents: right.
See the difference?

I'm not sure what you mean by "beating". Is he just spanking the kid, or bashing him over the head with a tire iron?

How dare those evil liberals take away a man's right to beat his property to death!

Seriously, though, what an asshole. Haylow's punching bags (oops, I mean kids) will grow big enough to beat the shit out of their father some day... and with all this instruction he's given them on how might makes right, they'll do it.

And no one will care.

If someone beats up someone who's smaller than s/he is, I will indeed interfere with the abuser.

Civilized societies usually don't have the right to sentence one of its "mebers" to death. It's a barbaric and antiquated custom that most western countries have abolished.
