Drive-Thru Spankings? CA Christian Used by Congregation for Violent Spank Services
The parents asked Paul Kim, 39, to discipline their son after finding a lighter in his possession, dropping the boy off at Kim’s Chino Hills home with permission for the beating, San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokesperson Cindy Bachmann said Saturday.
Kim hit the child with a metal pole about a dozen times, causing severe bruising on his legs, according to Bachmann. The pole was about an inch in diameter, investigators said.
An adult at the boy’s school saw the bruises and called Irvine police, who in turn informed San Bernardino County officials, she said.
Investigators believe Kim has been used in this way by other families in the congregation.
Kim was then arrested and now faces charges of willful cruelty to a child. The abused child’s father may also face criminal charges for his part in the after school special waiting to happen.
Police have requested that other children who have been abused by Kim at the order of parents from the La Habra church congregation please come forward. If you know something about this church-sponsored child abuse circuit, please contact the San Bernardino County District Attorney or Sheriff’s office.
All of this of course begs the question, Who Would Jesus Spank?
