I Guess The Courts Are Saying That It Is Ok For An Adult Man To Beat An 11 Year Old Girl With A Horse Riding Crop As Long As You Quote Bible Verses During The Beating ....
Crown attorney Debbie Buors told court the man quoted Bible verses as he struck the girl, who was put in his family’s care by Child and Family Services after being seized from a distant relative. He was telling her "Spare the rod, spoil the child" and "When you are evil you go to Hell," while dishing out the punishment on the family’s property in eastern Manitoba.
As she was being struck, the girl told police she repeatedly asked the man why he was hurting her. "She was quoting the scripture back to him," said Buors. "She was telling him 'That’s like putting evil on a child, whipping them with a horse whip.'" Defence lawyer Jay Prober said his client was frustrated over ongoing disciplinary issues with the girl, specifically while she was at school."
