Dear Christian Parent Who Spanks,
I understand that you believe that God desires for parents to hit their children. Even though I disagree with you on this, I beg you to please stick with me for a few more minutes. I have a few questions for you that I sincerely believe will help me to reach a better understanding of your perspective.
Your staying?! Thank you.
Question #1: Do you believe a diet high in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol is correlated with developing high cholesterol?
Question #2: If yes, how did you come to possess this belief?
Question #3: If you came to possess this belief by information gleaned from doctors (who gleaned it from studies), why do you respect this information?
Question #4: Are you aware that numerous studies are showing that spanking children is correlated with negative outcomes? If you are not aware of them, I have included a few links here:
Question #5: Do the studies on cholesterol carry more weight in your mind than the studies on the negative impacts of spanking children? Why or why not?
I want to hear from you! Please comment below or contact me privately at graceformysheep at gmail dot com.
Thank you very much for taking the time to engage in this discussion.
Your sister in Christ,
