OKLAHOMA Allows Corporal Punishment For Disabled Students

OKLAHOMA Allows Corporal Punishment For Disabled Students

“Nothing human disgusts me . . . unless it’s cruel.” – Hannah Jelkes, – Night of the Iguana (Tennessee Williams)

Via The New Republic: “On Tuesday, the Oklahoma House, in which Republicans have a supermajority, voted against House Bill 1028, which would have outlawed school district personnel from “using corporal punishment on any student identified with a disability in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.” After lawmakers read Bible verses and talked about the need for physical discipline, the measure failed to proceed by a vote of 45-43. “The rod and reproof give wisdom. But a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame,” said Republican Representative Jim Olsen.”

Oklahoma a state where a drag queen reading a book to kids is unacceptable because it’s child abuse, but literal child abuse is fine.

ANYONE who advocates beating a child, any child let alone one with mental/physical disabilities is not a Christian.
