    I've typed three responses and deleted them. Obviously its insane and the man should be disciplined.

    He should be arrested and charged with assault. The pride and arrogance displayed by that pastor is astounding.

    I am curious in which context does hitting someone in the chest get better.

    Sure it does. A fundamentalist thinks they are not only right, but must take steps to get those who are not acting according to the "right way" to conform. Usually fundamentalists use tactics like humiliation or the threat of exclusion to keep everyone in line, but violence isn't totally out of the question.

    You may be using a definition of fundamentalism as only applying to a movement within Protestism, but the word has evolved in meaning and application. There are not just Christian fundamentalists.

    Seems like he has understood and is ready to move forward. Nice to see. Hope this whole thing serves to make him a better pastor.

    The context was Christian Fundamentalism so your comments (first paragraph) seem to be intended as a slam. An apology to fundamentalists is in order.
