Pastor brags about punching ‘dangerously bright’ kid

Pastor brags about punching ‘dangerously bright’ kid January 10, 2015

Sometimes Christian love requires violence: In a disturbing video clip, a pastor brags about punching a “dangerously bright” kid in the chest for “not taking the Lord serious.”

In the video, an unnamed pastor talks about his days of being a youth pastor, and explains how he assaulted a “smart aleck” kid for “not taking the Lord serious.”

In the video the pastor says:

I punched him in the chest as hard as I could. I crumpled the kid.

The clip ends with the pastor explaining: “There’s times that that (assaulting children) might be needed.”

The problem is not only with the pastor who believes it is fine and dandy to assault children, and then brag about it. Perhaps even more troubling is the “good Christians” listening to their pastor justify child abuse without objecting.

It is frightening to think of how many Christians would agree with this pastor, and see nothing wrong with this sort of child abuse as long as it is in service to the Lord.

And that’s what they call Christian love.
