    I bet the ****er is actually a sadistic sex slave domination "daddy". You gotta really hate your ****in life to exert THIS level of control over other people. You have to have zero humanity and disguise it as "helping" people. Always carrying a secret tool of punishment around on you just to passively instill fear 24/7??? How about a ****in necklace showing love instead? I would hate to hurt anyone in any circumstance but would sorta love to be put in a underground room with all these "domination" ****s who think they are so damn tough and full of pride. Anyone who needs to "dominate" a weaker woman or child (or man I guess) is the type of person I would love to "dominate" and give them a taste of "instilled fear" doubled and squared. You seriously have to view a human as subhuman to punish them like this. I wouldnt even punish animals like this.

    Im not so sure on the "hosing off, and cold water" with potty training though. My little brother kept sneaking off to take dumps and pisses in his pants well after he knew it was wrong and 1 ice cold shower from the moms potty trained him instantly. But she only did it once and didnt leave him in there very long or anything. He just didnt care or pay attention to his potties and after that he did. If prison guards can hose of a person with cold water then a parent should maybe be able to utilize this as a very rare punishment. Its more forgiving than spanking as long as you dont overexpose them to cold even in the slightest. Cold shower just doesnt seem that bad (unless it crosses into the threshhold of obvious abuse) compared to using tubes and stuff to hide the marks.

    Starving children and putting them out in the cold is not the intent of those verses.

    I wouldn't argue otherwise.

    Yeah, pretty much anything in any holy book can be interpreted and taken to extremes. Look at Jehova's Witnesses and their refusal to get blood tranfusions. Or the Hindus and their caste system. Or Muslims and their jihads....

    I think Jihad actually means "To Struggle" and the western media ran with it and always has. "Holy war" is another word. So basically the western media can turn any struggle that might happen into "Jihad" and instantly Americans will think "fanatics".

    These are "parenting" techniques that would be classified as war crimes if our troops were doing it. There aren't any circumstances in which this is remotely productive.
