breaking bad

Spare the rod

Michael Berube writes satirically about the relationship between religious monoculture and physical punishment of children, a subject I feel quite strongly about ('I'm against it'). He links to Amazon who are selling a book called The Strong Willed Child by a nutcase called James Dobson. How to break your child's will by hitting them with various implements. I'm not kidding, I only wish I were. He disgusts me in the extreme. That last link is quite disturbing, sorry, but I had to make the point.
