I read this in the Globe and Mail the other day and could only shake my head. Not in disbelief (because this type of thing occurs more often than not), but in sadness at how people take Scripture literally and then attempt to apply their literal interpretation to life. (In addition, how could a father do this to his four year old son?) Read here and judge for yourself. I agree with the judge’s verdict of negligence. Therefore, theology (and hopefully a reasoned understanding thereof) has real implications in one’s life.
