Posted by Sandra On September - 1 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

indy-rfra-abuseThe attorney for a woman charged with child abuse for allegedly beating her son with a coat hanger says Indiana’s religious objections law gives her the right to discipline her children according to her evangelical Christian beliefs. Kihn Par Thaing, 30, of Indianapolis was arrested in February on felony abuse and neglect charges after a teacher discovered her 7-year-old son’s injuries. Thaing is accused of beating her son with a coat hanger, leaving him with 36 bruises and red welts. Her attorney, Greg Bowes, argues in court documents filed July 29 that the state shouldn’t interfere with Thaing’s right to raise her children as she deems appropriate. He cited Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act as part of her defense, saying it gives her the right to discipline her children according to her beliefs. Court documents cite biblical Scripture and state that a parent who “spares the rod, spoils the child.” READ MORE HERE
