The first is particularly interesting. Obviously the court will get to decide how far religious freedom goes in terms of corporal punishment of kids. Will have to follow this one.

On a subnote It also goes to show politicians who would like to favor Christian immigration that there still are major sect and cultural differences that can't be swept under the rug just because a person is Christian.

Nothing interesting about the first one. Dude can cite religious freedom all he wants but he will be tried and found guilty without a shadow of doubt.

I would tend to think that as well. A quick search revealed Willis vs. Indiana, a precedence 6 to 8 lashes with a belt or extension cord is with in parental rights.

Toss in the Religious Freedom Act and with a highly conservative judge who knows what could happen with this mother's case.

Interesting that Willis case was overturned on appeal. I'm not going to read up on it more but cps can operate independently of the appeal. I wonder what monitoring they applied after the fact.
