Someone explain this to me

I am posting the link below for easier access.
Can someone explain to me how come one book can have so many interpretations, including promoting child torture and death? Are children and women worth nothing according to most major religions?
And then the same people kind of people claim they are pro-life?

  • It doesnt promote child torture and all that. This story saddens me and the parents sicken me.

  • sorry, but this is sick... the fact it's thought to be allowed is what is more sickening. I know growing up, that the churches I went to NEVER taught anything like this. (no I'm no longer a Christian, but still, never say anything like this in church). When I went they always valued children. We were taught that children were a gift from God and to be treated as such. The way these people are treating their children is worse than they probably treat the family dog.

  • Besides which, I thought murder was a sin.

  • This isn't Christian, this is sick. These people were child abusers using Christianity as a cover and excuse.

  • There are no words.

    What despicable parents and the people who wrote the book that these parents are following are equally as despicable. I hope the hell that so many religious people talk about is real just for people like this. YUCK!!!

  • This makes me want to scream. I had to stop reading.

    The Bible talks about punishing a child and that using a physical approach can be useful with some children in some cases. But it is NOT stated as a law. Also those few scriptures cannot be taken out of context of the Bible or away from Jehovah's thoughts over all. Anyone of any sense and even the most limited contact with the Bible (excuse me but I am maddened by the despicable injustice of these children's lives (and so many others) knows all things in being acceptable to God should take place with love, peace, mild temperness, generosity and tolerance, patience, goodness, self control, . . .
