Casey bringing the "real issue" to the fore:
The real issue is here is not the JC's teachings, butthe teachings of Jesus! [sic]
No Casey the real issue is JC actions and how they oppose the teachings of Jesus. Where in the teachings of Jesus does it say you can whip someone for a perceived sin? The teachings of Jesus DO make reference to servants beating each other, and in that sense you guys are following them, but those beating each other certainly were not viewed with favour at the end of the day.
What happened to turning the other cheek, loving one's enemies, resisting not evil, etc. As soon as the JC's publicly brought out a whip to punish you invited comment.
I could just about quote any teaching of Jesus and your community would argue against doing it.
Let's try "Forsake all".
Dave and Cherry forsake your housing trust flat and centrelink payments.
Of course they will argue against doing this, and they will use the exact same arguments they criticise others of using.
I would definately prefer to discuss the teachings of Jesus Casey, as opposed to having to field accusations against my son, or relationship with my wife.
