Default Pastor advocates violence against children

A US Pastor has said that sons showing "girlish" behaviour should be punched and their wrists cracked, only to claim he was not inciting violence. He has only apologised for his choice of words, saying parents should affirm their children's sexuality.

Fucking disgusting backpeddling upon having his statements challenged. Slimy, smarmy little self-indulgent wanker. Ick. I feel dirty just having watched him speak.

Not enough backpedalling, IMO. Lots of weasel-words, but doesn't resile from the core message, not one bit.

Sadly, people who would listen to this moron's advocacy of child abuse would most likely already be behaving this way - he just affirms them in their prejudicial violent crap.

On the other hand, it reveals xtianity as the nasty violent bigotted shit doctrine that it is, if its leaders are spouting this kind of thing, so maybe not a total negative.

The good pastor would perhaps feel more at home as a member of the 3rd SS Panzer Division "Totenkopf" or as a concentration camp guard.
A vile creature.
