We discuss Ruby Franke’s recent guilty plea for abusing her children and read excerpts from the plea deal, which contains disturbing details of kicking, choking, and even holding them underwater. Franke admits her actions were “morally and legally wrong.”
The hosts analyze how Franke justified the @buse by claiming God wanted her to discipline her son. They discuss how some Mormon teachings can distort views on “morality” and discipline.
The hosts argue the Mormon church needs to take some responsibility by re-examining certain teachings that may enable abuse by followers. They believe the church can help prevent similar tragedies through reforms and speaking out against domestic violence.
