What’s the proper way to raise a non-religious child?
According to Pat Robertson, beat them.
The conservative TV preacher made the remarks while answering an email from a viewer named Karen, who expressed concern about attending a Christmas event because her Christian daughter “drank too much” and her grandson disagreed with her religious beliefs.
The horror. The absolute horror.
Writing in the email, Karen said that:
We declined going to our daughter’s house on Christmas this year because there is always an argument, hard feelings et cetera. 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.
Robertson’s recommendation? Take the grandson “to the woodshed and let him understand the blessings of discipline.”
If that’s the blessings of discipline, the curse must be later when they get arrested because they think violence is okay.
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.
Robertson ended up advising the viewer not to go to her daughter’s house on Christmas, saying, “Why ruin Christmas, and let a lot of people like that get drunk and curse and abuse your savior? Who needs that?”
