If I was Pastor Creflo Dollar, her and her mother both would be homeless. When you are 15, you don't make the rules in my house when I am the one taking care of your azz. He said she couldn't go to the dance, so that should have been it. He is the parent and makes the rules for his home. She disrespected him by arguing with him, therefore, he should have jacked up that azz. When you have parents that don't discipline their kids, then the cops want to call you bad parents, then when they get out of hand and you check them, then they arrest you for abuse. The wife didn't not handle the situation correctly, she should have made the daughter respect her father, especially when there are so few AA fathers in the home being supportive and caring for their kids, then you have one that is and he gets arrested because his daughter is disrespectful to her father. She would not be able to live in my house until she learn to be respectful and the wife can go also if she don't like it. I say to Pastor Dollar, handle you business, don't let a kid run your house or come and go as they please as a 15 year old. Parents are damned if they do and damned if they don't.
Spanking a misbehaving seven year old is one thing. Choking a teenager is another. Strangulation is not supportive parenting. You have to be a pretty weak and crappy dad to do that.
