That is messed up! I went to Sunday school for a minute when I was a kid, and they were very warm fuzzy Jesus loves all the little children. I eventually realized I didn't believe the stories but for years I went on thinking Christianity was just something that made people nicer.

Can't help with identifying, but that reminds me of another one. That scene in The Rescuers where Medusa is pulling off her fake eyelashes--I had never seen those before and couldn't figure out why she would do that, and it was a little upsetting!
