  1. Does anyone know, how does the conservative secular crowd view spanking, and corporeal punishment? Thanks.

  2. Mr. Mitchell, I cannot speak for anyone else, but in my experience as a parent, spanking children (maybe especially boys) is rarely, but definitely, necessary. If saved as an infrequent but sure response to the worst behaviors, it is a valuable tool.

  3. Update: Having completed a review of Biblical religion, I find I can no longer endorse many of these old posts.
