[su_right_ad]John Nantz at Town Hall tells you why you should be violent toward your child.

Parents have employed corporal punishment for millennia because it is the most direct means of teaching children a fundamental moral tenet—responsibility for one’s choices. It seems elemental, but the lesson is lost on most of American society. Immoral choices ultimately produce negative consequences. And, life usually isn’t shy to reinforce that fact with prodigious amounts of pain. Despite the best efforts of progressives to drown the concept of personal responsibility in a flood of Freudian babble, reality stubbornly refuses to subscribe to the “pass the buck” rationale; that excuse didn’t work in the Garden of Eden and, despite what the Serpent said, the buck does stop with you…

Corporal punishment is inflicted in a myriad of forms, spanking, paddling, and dad’s worn leather belt come to mind. It’s never pleasant, and it inflicts pain of different orders on the recipient as well as on the parent who feels compelled by the deepest impulse of love. A parent, who at least has the wisdom of experience, punishes to divert a child from the pain of consequences far more severe than the brief infliction of momentary physical discomfort…

Christ himself correlates corporal punishment with His own acts of correction in a Christian’s life. “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he recieveth.” Hebrews 12:6. If parents don’t discipline their children, God’s moral order certainly will. But, the lessons could be bought at a terrible price. “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.” Matthew 21:44

    WTF is wrong with these people? Compliance through fear and pain? It was tried before. It was called the dark ages.

      Seems somewhat perverted to me.

    • tiredoftea September 26th, 2014 at 11:50 am

      Or, christian homes, schools and churches.

    I can see where the frustration started so people needed to be disciplined

    Culture of violence. Don’t talk just hit.

    people like this make the world want to puke. All that spanking over the millenia has produced the gentle moral world we all inhabit today – beat the little bastards for a better tomorrow: 12:34 from the book of blind faith.

      eg: ‘beat the hell out of them sos there’ll be room enough for God’s love’

      sorta like in the Spanish Inquisition.

    Jesus NEVER spanked a child the whole time he was here.

    WTF makes them think He would start now?

    ‘enhanced interrogation’ of those who hold a different faith?

    I miss my 20’s and 30’s when I had all the knowledge of the world and was never stymied by doubt. Now in my 50’s I realize every single day how little I know, and I’m a little shocked by how often I’m wrong. Except on this topic – stop hitting your children. We are an evolved species with ample tools and skills available to us to teach out children responsibility and consequence.There is no reason or excuse to strike a child. Ever.

    Shillelagh McThwacker is right! Beat ’em now or Jesus shall smite the hell outta ’em later!

  8. Budda September 26th, 2014 at 7:36 am

    Jesus or Nantz don’t tell me what to do. I think and act on my own…and I never hit my children.

    You read Nantz’s profile at, and it tells you all you need to know. He’s a graduate of “Regent University’s school of law.” That’s Pat Robertson U. And the comments on the story this came from are priceless.

    Insert obvious “turn the other cheek” joke.

    Why is christianity such a violent religion? Beating, smiting, destroying whole towns, killing all manner of men, women and children, hangings, crucifixions, fire and brimstone and burning in hell for all eternity. It’s like they’re trying to scare their sheep into submission. Oh, right……..

    • Dwendt44 September 26th, 2014 at 1:09 pm

      That’s all in order to show you god’s love for mankind./s

    “Immoral choices ultimately produce negative consequences.”

    Tell that the the christian swingers in that other article. As far as I’m concerned, christianity is an immoral lifestyle choice with negative consequences for the rest of us…

    Does this really surprise anybody? One needs only to look through history to discover a list of God’s desires …
    He hated Muslims and Kurds, so He told Christians to start a killing crusade.
    He hated heretics, so the inquisition was born.
    He hated Jews, so the Vatican sat silent when the Nazis slaughtered them.
    He wanted to bring democracy to Iraq, so he told Dubya to invade.
    He hates Planned Parenthood, so Christians bombed clinics.
    Why do Christians worship a God who hates just about everything He made? Did he create gays so Christians would have somebody to hate? Religion boggles the mind.
