Is This ‘Religious Child Abuse’ Image Just a Strawman?

Reader Benn recently posted this image on Facebook:

He received a response from a Christian friend saying the image was too extreme — no religious person would ever say that, he said.

So let’s help Benn out: Is this just a strawman argument or is it a real threat?

Do religious parents ever say these things to their young children?
