May I see a list of the Atheist Charities, Atheist Social Services, Atheist Homes for Orphaned or Abused Children, Atheist ANYTHING that contributes to the general good and saves people in need, provides adoption services and houses abandoned children and pregnant teens, etc. etc. etc. Perhaps the Atheist Salvation Army? Atheist Food Banks? Atheist Homeless Shelters? Because the Christian counterparts to the imaginary atheist groups exist in every community and most corners of the distinctly non-compassionate, non-altruistic, brutal world. And man will NOT survive without God for long. Wait and see. Our country is already in dire straits in no small part because of the rejection of God by so many. God will not be mocked. Again--wait and see.
The Bible is the "breathed Word of God." The fact that He breathed it through mortals does not diminish that one bit. You cannot possibly read it and not believe that. Besides, it is also the greatest literary work of all time, should you choose to read it as "just a book."
Absolutely. And race is NOT the same as behavior.
You would think the Lefties, who like to think of themselves as "progressives," would catch up to science (they are woefully behind) and realize that babies are little humans regardless of which stage of development they are in. The advent of ultrasound should have put an end to abortion at any stage, but at the very least pushed it back before 12 weeks. It is still killing a baby but maybe before it feels excruciating pain. Why is the Left so obsessed with killing babies anyway?

Perfect. A friend who taught junior high at the time told me the girls would talk on Mondays about how many boys they "Lewinskied" over the weekend. Lovely.

What a load of true, 100% bull****. It is even worse to suggest that hitting children under age four is somehow even more justifiable! Pathetic.

I give up. There is no getting through to you Neanderthals who want to parse words and separate "spanking" (hitting) from "beating" (hitting). It is impossible to talk to lefties, because their dogma is all that matters to them. It seems you pro-hitting folks have the same problem. Never let facts interfere with your dogma. You sound just like the lefties.

Kids are not tyrants because no one hits them, but because no one teaches them right from wrong or delivers any meaningful consequence. All you spanker fiends would do well to go back and read Logical Consequences or Children: the Challenge. Surely you have the brains to come up with something more productive and less 12th century than hitting kids and expecting them to deduce from that what they are supposed to do or not do. Not logical, not effective and not an answer for today's already underloved and overpampered kids. TEACH, don't bully.

Yes, and look what awful children they managed to raise.

Yes, it is always good to teach kids not to be violent and aggressive by being violent and aggressive with them. Makes perfect sense. But no, there is no difference. Hitting kids is always wrong, and all the justification in the world cannot change that. There are so many more effective and non-violent means to produce lovely children who are responsible and loving adults. And why this has ANYTHING to do with the subject I do not know, but I have been married 46 years to the same man and raised three lovely and loving children who are responsibly raising my seven lovely and loving grandchildren, and NOT ONE OF US ever hit any child. I had my very effective ways of making sure the kids knew what they could and could not do. While they made some mistakes, they learned lessons absent a violent response of any sort. I guess I must be some sort of magician, to have accomplished such a thing.
