Christian smacking manual

I was only interested in this article about the Christian smacking manual because they’d managed to find some wacky Swede to defend it. I didn’t expect to find one of the best quotes I’ve ever seen:

Mr Smith said last night the brochure was written for a Christian audience and outlined the biblical philosophy of child punishment. Many Christians did not want to see smacking banned as that would take away parental authority, but he conceded the brochure would appear as “total nonsense” to non-Christians.

I’m sure it’d appear as “total nonsense” to sensible Christians as well :-)
