there are women beaters that are convinced they beat thier women out of love and to teach them they see no neglect or abuse in what they do but that doesnt mean there was none present and this is the very thing that makes the discussion and where to draw the line on children even possible
I can't believe anyone is actually defending these people.
The idea that children are property like livestock is laughable to the point of absurdity. For starters, you can sell or eat your livestock.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
However, their kids cannot consent to such beliefs. That is the problem here. You cannot deny life saving treatment for your child because your child is not an adult and thus cannot consent. Your child is not your "property".
Of course its the same thing. If it is my deeply held religious belief that prayer is all the nourishment one needs and through prayer one is nourished, then if I completely deny my kids any food at all because of my deeply held religious belief, then how is that any different at all?this is not the same thing

It's amazing to me that religious idiots like this are (likely) against abortion. At least the fetuses dont suffer.
