Is not her assault upon his eardrums a crime too? Her’s was the first action, his a reaction and he’s in jail for battery. How about we split the difference and send her to jail too for assault? That would seem fair to me, as both were breaking the law.
she broke the law?
It’s a shame that we live in a society that the name of God can be maligned and seen as no big deal.
But where is the justice in beating ones wife?
No absolutely not. Saying something offensive is hardly an assault. You can't have a civilized society if every time someone hears something offensive they have the right to physically assault someone.
Is Al Gore justified in physically attacking us if we don't believe in Global Warming? Are we justified in attacking him because we find his BS offensive? No, in neither case.
Muslims teaching that Jesus was not the Son of God but just a prophet who deceived people about his death is offensive to Christians. Does that justify attacks on Muslims? Muslims are offended when Christians say Mohammed wasn't a real prophet. Muslims believe they are justified in attacking Christians over the matter. But theirs is a barbaric society with no tolerance for difference of opinions. Hindus preach something different that is offensive to both. Mormons teach something similar to Muslims. Can Mormons attack Muslims for saying their Mormon prophet wasn't a real prophet?
Civilized society has different opinions. Deal with it.
Christianity has progressed not by physical attacks on it's dissenters, but by winning people over through their hearts and minds. Very few Christians would say a man has a right to assault his wife over taking the Lord's name in vain or saying anything else offensive.
I’ve seen that happen when the cop got frustrated with both.
There is no splitting the difference here. The guy used violence. No excuse.
Are you a woman? No real man could possibly say something like that.
What an asinine statement, advocating spousal abuse is not Christian, God did not put you in the position to judge blasphemy, that’s his job.
Perhaps moving to Pakistan would be more appropriate for you.
