Call in to speak with the host
Michael Pearl who wrote "To Train Up a Child" claims that he's taught upwards of one million people his methods of the "biblical chastisement" of children, propagating his ideas throughout the Evangelical Christian homeschooling community. Kevin and Elizabeth Schatz prepare to face charges of murder and torture in Butte County, California in just ten days. Have the homeschooling and Christian communities learned anything from the death of eight year old Lydia Schatz and the kidney failure in her surviving sister, Zariah? Or have Christians largely turned their backs on the Schatz family, sullying them as scapegoats in favor of protecting Pearl and their own consciences for using Pearl's methods themselves? Do Christians have a divine right to discipline a child with Teflon reinforced plumbing supply hose until the child cannot speak a two syllable word? Why would they think that they do and what might someone like Stanley Milgram have to say about the Schatz family?

It's good to talk.
