First is that it took some time for parents to complain about the beating of their children - esp those as young as two months old. Second is the way the males in charge seem proud of beating children and find no problem with it. Third is that they believe that spanking a child with a dowel is an appropriate response to crying or being "emotional" even in a child who has NO other way to communicate! HOW do they expect to figure out if the child has some type of illness? Or any toher problem? Then there is the part of the article where the pastor detained his wife and son in their rooms because they SPOKE to someone not in their religion!!! I thought we had freedom of speech in this country, but I guess the constitution is void in their church. Lastly, and in my opinion incredibly upsetting, is that NO ONE removed even the youngest children from the custody of their parents. Of course this IS a church of white people, so I guess they get different treatment, being white and all part of a church. If these were people who were NOT white they would have lost custody at least temporarily. The parents of the infants esp would have a tough time getting them back. If they were not a church they would have a tougher time. I guess being white members of some strange church makes it different when parents and the preacher beat children for crying when they are too young to even crawl or sit up. Not sure why this has me SO MAD, but it does. While I have not read novels by the woman who donated money to start the church, I sure as sugar won't start reading them now. There is no way that every adult in the church didn't know that the kids were being beaten.
