Michael Pearl and his wife run an outfit called "No Greater Joy" ministries. It's basically about how to raise your kid to be in complete submission to you, the parent, AKA so afraid to do anything because you might get a serious buttwhipping from mom and dad. Pearl has published several books, and the most famous is "To Train Up a Child." You don't actually have to read the book, the one-star Amazon.com reviews will tell you what it's all about: http://www.amazon.com/Train-Up-Child-Michael-Pearl/dp/1892112000 Basically, Pearl teaches his followers to whip kids with quarter-inch plumbing line. Some kids have died as a result (e.g., Sean Paddock, Lydia Schatz and Hana Grace-Rose Williams). Well, someone got hold of a piece of video from one of the Pearls' workshops, and it shows Michael and Debi at their best (which is everyone else's worst). He does like to whip kids a lot. Michael DMCA'ed the video from YouTube and it's currently being mirrored by people who think everyone should see the Pearls in all their glory: If you feel like mirroring this video, by all means, let me encourage you. tl;dr: Michael Pearl, who advocates beating kids with plumbing line, is butthurt over being exposed in a video. Oh yeah, and his teachings have killed kids. If you feel up to it, mirror away.
