Again, this was one of the allegations against the IFB "church" on tonight's 20/20. The woman that was claiming that SOME IFB pastors preached that children as young as 2 months needed to be hit or beat in order to break them of their will. And they even had audio clips of them preaching saying things like "if you aren't leaving bruises you aren't spanking enough" and "it could take 100 connections (meaning whacks with an object)"
Honestly, it frightens me that anyone would hit a 2 week old. I believe in spanking, but that's not spanking, that's abuse. And the idea that parents are being told that this is what God wants them to do is shameful! No religion should be permited to preach abuse, and religious leaders who do, should be held accountable just as the parents who listen to them!
