Anti-spanking busybodies in Canada never tire of pushing their agenda; trying to get it enacted legislatively, and also trying to convince others that spanking is wrong.
Now, they’re promoting the idea that it should be banned on the basis of public health. (Hat Tip: The Angry Dad)
This is such obvious bullshit. It’s actually the exact opposite; NOT spanking kids who need to be spanked, ruins them.
The Word of God backs up such common-sense observation:
He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.
(All quotations from the KJV.)
The Bible not only sanctions corporal punishment, completely; it actually warns against NOT imposing it on children who deserve it.
Since faith is for all of life, not merely Sunday morning worship, and the Bible a guide for us on how we should live, those busybodies and politicians and so-called ‘experts’ who would ban parents from spanking their children, are opposed to religious freedom, at least for Christians (and, for that matter, also for Jews), who wish to live their lives in accordance with the wisdom teachings of Proverbs.
We really should make this a religious-freedom political issue, because it truly is. Let all see those who hate us, unmasked for the anti-Christian bigots they are.
