The Catholic Church has really gotten a bad rap over the past 20 years or so…okay, maybe longer….but this new pope, is giving the Church life. His views are refreshing and more realistic than any pope that I’ve seen in my lifetime, and for the sake of the church, I hope this trend continues.
It seems that Pope Francis is now poking a bee’s nest in the pediatric community by supporting the issue of spanking children. Please know that the headline for this blog post is in joking fashion, it is never cool to beat children. However, no child has ever died or suffered serious injury from a firm swat on the ass and a stern talking too. Especially when their behavior is putting them in harms way and they don’t respond to simple requests. I’m sure this story will be just the tip of the iceberg on this subject so I wanted to join in on the debate. I too support spanking. I believe that taking that form of discipline from parenting is the reason the world is asking, “What in the hell is wrong with today’s children???”. The Pope is likely to catch a lot grief over this one, because everyone who supports spanking does, but I’m behind him 100%. Pope Francis, keep kicking ass and taking names.
