i can’t really give this the jesus junk of the month award. really, i’m left scratching my head and mumbling: really? is that real? are you sure it’s not a fake site? but to the best of my little armchair web-journalistic digging capabilities, i think — can it be? — that this is a genuinely real website.
and it is…
the christian domestic discipline store: Loving wife spanking in a Christian Marriage
please — i WANT to be wrong about the veracity of this site.
here’s an excerpt from one of the books they sell, written by the site owner:
In today’s society where any physical discipline is severely frowned upon, it is important that even a Christian Domestic Discipline relationship be consensual; however, it is interesting to note that Biblically, a man’s right to chastise and discipline his wife is strongly implied. Just as a parent would never stop to ask permission to chastise his child, a husband should not have to obtain consent to discipline his wife; however, our legal system has put him in the position of having to do so. Just as our culture is turned upside down in so many other things, the traditional Christian marriage is no exception.
