Pat Robertson: Non-religious Children Should Be Beaten Until They Respect Christ by EyeHateGod: 2:23am On Sep 12, 2016
In another example demonstrating that Pat Robertson believes in persecuting non-Christians and indoctrinating children, the televangelist openly suggested that parents should beat their kids until they respect Christian beliefs.

During yet another shameful episode of the 700 Club, which runs on Disney-owned channel ABC Family, Robertson received an email from a woman who claimed that her grandson disrespects their Christian faith when they visit their daughter on Christmas and chose not to visit this past year.

“We declined going to our daughter’s house on Christmas this year because there is always an argument, hard feelings etc.,” viewer Karen wrote.

“ One grandchild comes high on marijuana, cursing and challenging our faith. I correct him and have told my daughter to ask him to respect our beliefs, but he keeps it up. Our daughter says she is a Christian but will drink too much and offend her daughter and her husband. Were we wrong to not to attend another Christmas that leaves us upset or someone angry? I have shared my beliefs many times with them and am ridiculed by this grandson and son-in-law.”


Robertson’s immediate solution? Beat the child until he respects Christianity.

“Somebody take that kid to the woodshed and let him understand the blessings of discipline,”
Robertson advised before predicting that the kid would end up in prison if a strong male figure didn’t start beating him right away.

“He needs a strong male figure. He’s going to wind up in a correctional institution, and the next thing you know, he’s going to be doing hard time in some prison. And then he would wish he wasn’t such a smart, you know, wise guy. Because he’ll be disciplined in a way that he’ll never forget in some prison… He needs discipline in the worst possible way ."


[One solution Pat Robertson conveniently didn’t mention is for Karen to stop bringing up religion at her daughter’s home. [/b] She says she has “shared her beliefs many times with them” and admits that it always causes an argument. Well, there’s her problem. Stop trying to force your beliefs upon your daughter’s family and the arguments will probably cease. It’s not that people are offended by someone just because they practice a certain religion, they just tend to get offended when someone tries to force those beliefs onto them. By doing this, Karen is inviting arguments, hard feelings, and ridicule from family members who don’t want to be preached to during a holiday or any other day of the year for that matter.

Robertson’s solution is not only cruel, it constitutes child abuse, which is against the law. Beating a child into respecting a religious belief is the very definition of indoctrination and violates the constitutional rights of the abused.

Robertson’s call for beating kids into religious submission is similar to a Glenn Beck rant from 2013 when he also advocated for parents to physically abuse their kids until they believe in God. Just two years earlier, fundamentalist Christian parents beat their nine kids in the name of God. One child actually died from the abuse. Telling religious extremists to beat their kids is a very dangerous thing to do, and if any religious parents beat their kids like Robertson is advising, he should be charged as an accessory to child abuse.

The kid is already beyond parental correction. Fold your fish before it dries.

The kids who deserve a beating are the 10 years and below. undecided After that, it's useless.

This is the first atheist thread I will read in a long time because I love this man. I was hoping to read something that will shock me.
Unfortunately, its an atheist website doctored article with a misleading intent. The words of Pat are written in quote, people should read it and ignore the desperate atheist-engineered heading.

Unfortunately, the atheists intentionally left out that part of the
-grandson smoking marijuana
-Daughter overdrinking alcholol and disrespecting her daughter and husband.



[size=14pt]Pat never said beat the child until he respects christianity, people ahould read his words in quote and ignore these wild atheists[/size]

Pats words were golden: “Somebody take that kid to the woodshed and let him understand the blessings of discipline,”

“He needs a strong male figure. OR He’s going to wind up in a correctional institution, and the next thing you know, he’s going to be doing hard time in some prison. And then he would wish he wasn’t such a smart, you know, wise guy. Because he’ll be disciplined in a way that he’ll never forget in some prison… He needs discipline in the worst possible way."




Children need discipline, else life will discipline them in the worst possible way. A kid who acts on marijuana because he feels he can should be corrected. When he is old enough to know right from wrong, he can continue with his atheism hopelessness and use as much marijuana and alcohol as he wants. His life is meaningless anyway.

Scientifically, the long term effects of alcohol compared to its equivalent as cannabis (weed) shows that alcohol is far MORE harmful than marijuana(weed). Weed even has properties that help in curing cancer. But their master Jeebus supposedly turned water into wine. He chose alcohol over weed. grin so much for omnipotence grin grin

People fail to realise that beating someone can change his beliefs. It'll only make the person practice the physical aspects of that belief and make the person realise how fake the belief is
