Lawyer to bible beater: That ain’t what the book says

Lawyer in Alamo case: Bible no defense for abuse

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – A lawyer suing jailed evangelist Tony Alamo over alleged abuse says the preacher’s right to religious freedom doesn’t allow him to beat children.

In federal court filings this week, W. David Carter wrote that protecting the public trumps constitutional protections afforded to religion. Alamo’s lawyer said in a court filing last week that the Bible requires spanking unruly children, and he suggested that Alamo had permission from church parents to discipline their children.</em>

What a disgusting creep. Throw the book at him- and throw it the hell out of a courtroom, where it has no place at all.
