OMG! It was about the International Fundamentalist Baptist Church! I just watched it on my TIVO. I cried when the reporter revealed that one pastor told his congregation that if their children were not being bruised then they were not being spanked enough!!! OMG??? It only got more interesting from there! Apparently, a good Baptist Christian forgives and forgets even when they are raped and kicked out of the church for getting pregnant from that rape????!!!!! OMG! I had NO IDEA that this is what Baptists believed? If ANYONE caught this 20/20 show I would love to read your thoughts!!! Thanks!
Okay, yes, I did see this, and I posted about it days ago. HOWEVER, NOT ALL IFB churches are like this. Many are just like any other Baptist church, the extreme ones however make the news. Anyone who wants to see this though can go to the 20/20 website and watch the full episode.

Look up Michael and Debi Pearl. "No Greater Joy Ministry" and their book, "How to train up a child".
They claim to not condone hitting babies, but, then they suggest using Weed eater cording to pop them if they cry too much. They recommend ""Later, a plumber's supply line is a good spanking tool. You can get it at Wal-Mart or any hardware store. Ask for a plastic, ¼ inch, supply line. They come in different lengths and several colors; so you can have a designer rod to your own taste." for hitting ages 1 and up...
