Okay, young man in hood... ...getting whupped by his mother. Who wants to bet her rights as a mother will not compare to her rights as a mother to end her son's life when he was in her womb? Praise God that in the midst of intentional overlooking of sin...this mother exacts discipline that may have, again...preserved her son's life. Go ahead mom...knock some sense into your son's head, lol. I will sign any petition to stand up for your right to follow Scriptural teaching and to... ...beat the Hell out of that wayward and mislead youth of yours. I don't see it as child abuse, but a stern and needed discipline that is woefully lacking these days. The event was extreme calling for extreme measures. Anyone daring to question her rights as a mother can also question why she did what she did. Open for critique. And for the record, race is not an issue...motherhood and discipline are. Leave race behind and let's discuss this from a strictly Biblical Worldview. God bless.
