Unbelievers said the same thing about Jesus, they claimed He was a lunatic because He would not cater to their wishes. But you are right about this thread being about wife beatings, nothing else. So I prefer to stick to the point.
When there is a wrong being done, I honestly don't care what anyone thinks about me when I am give the facts that are in plain sight.
The fact is that wife beatings are wrong.
I'm so sorry for all the beaten and battered women of the world made to feel lower then an animal. All the mental scares that they carry now and made to feel that they can't make it without their husbands. I've talked to many beaten wives, and its always the same story.
