Bible Belt

We need to send our children to church and religious camps and Sunday school because it's the only way they will learn morals and values. Morals like these.

He struck his 12-year-old daughter with belts because she lied, because her homework was incomplete and because "it is stated in the Bible that it is OK to spank your children," the father told police.

The girl said she was beaten for not reading well enough, for using slang, and for "not accepting Jesus into her heart," police reported.

When asked why he ordered the girl to take off her clothes before striking her, Bilodeau allegedly replied that "he wants her to feel the pain," police reported.
Just like Jesus used to do.

You see, the religious folk judge atheists for being immoral heathens and try to keep orphaned children in orphanages instead of in loving, supportive two parent homosexual households because of the homos' unChristian lifestyle. But they are completely fine with beating a naked child with a belt for not being religious enough. There would be a special meeting of congress if a man beat his children for being too religious. But because he beat her for being not religious enough, this story will remain a minor local story, as it should.

Whatever the case, it is clear to me that whether you believe in Jesus, Allah, a Flying Spaghetti Monster, or nothing at all, it makes no difference on whether you end up being an asshole whackjob unfit for parenthood. And it definitely doesn't make you a better president. Let's stop claiming it does. All that matters is a sense of right and wrong and the ability to recognize and prevent yourself from infringing on the rights of others. You don't need the bible to teach that. Just common sense and a heart.
