Michael Pearl Gets More Attention

The death of Hanna Williams has brought an ever increasing amount of attention to Michael Pearl and his child training methods. Yesterday, the New York Times ran an article on Michael Pearl called “Preaching Virtue of Spanking Even as Deaths Fuel Debate.” It was on the front page, so I just thought I’d draw everyone’s attention to it. I’ve written before about the connection between the child rearing method Michael Pearl promotes and the deaths of several children here and here.

    I think Mike Pearl likes the "advertising" and he thinks it will help him sell more books.

    One child dies at the hands of fundamentalists. How many have died at the hands of abortionists?
