Such law is pure intrusion into religious right of citizens.
You assert that a citizen (especially a child) has a religious right to be spanked and that the government interferes with religion by prohibiting spanking?
That's all I wanted to hear.
Parents have not just rights , but obligation to apply physical force for education and discipline matter when it required. (As you may notice above I do differentiate Physical application and
Currently , "people with power", speculating on such words as violence, aggression, anger.
People in “high places” twisting and substitute meaning of those words to deceive our kids and not let them develop correct comprehension of reality and it sign of antichrist.
Taking away from parents right and obligation to look after kids in appropriate manner and teach them correct comprehension as God teach us, it is pure form of religious discrimination.
Just remained you about, that modern law is not look on parents as “parents” but “biological producer” with basic “care giver” rights in “way it suet to government interest”.
it is like big farm....zooland. Psalm 48(49):12(13)
Who or What can save us from this "zooland" you just described? Here's an analogy....
Spiritual fathers have spiritual children. Is it permissible for a spiritual father to use "physical application" on a spiritual child regardless if the spiritual father is a Priest, Bishop or Monastic?
1. There are lot of speculation and deception about “spiritual father”.
2. Native parents are primary spiritual fathers for they own children.
If it not, it is to bad.
Hardly such people should cool themselves as Christians or have kids.
3. Physical application – including any form of contact, including speech.
4. Speech is low efficient and sophisticated communicational form comparly to other form such as body contacts.
5. Punishment and Education and Discipline – 3 deferent things.
6. Education and discipline – for correction not for punishment.
Body contact is form of communication.
Level of such communication are have wide sector.
Killing is one of form of church contact.
Do not kill.
Physical force application is not about killing, as well slapping should be not about killing or revenge or punishment but prevention, correction, education.
If any one for any reason do not understand speech, alternative , specially primary(basic) and more simple form of communication need to be applied.
As I have stated above do not mix “punishment” with “discipline” and “education” (knowledge implication).
But people are mix every thing and speculating.
No way we can change it……
We not build paradise on earth.
.....And only God can save as from zooland. And orthodoxy is all about it.
We can decler, we cam manifest, we can make statements, we should protect those who we obligate protect (our self and our kids etc) and make sure we not shift from reality.
But we not in capacity to change world, we just waiting for it end in general and our body death individually.
