one Wednesday nite I was in a church, and the children of one of the families kept acting very disruptive. The father and mother alternated between taking the children outside the sanctuary to calm them down, but the children kept on being disruptive. The pastor then stopped his sermon, and told the children if they didn't settle down he was going to take them to the back of the church and whip them. Needless to say the children wouldn't calm down, and their parents tried calming them down; the mother even said "you shut your mouth" to one of her incorrigible kids. I can understand the pastor getting frustrated, but do you feel he had the right to make the statement/threat that he did to the uncooperative children?
