Spanking for Jesus or a movement known as Christian Domestic Discipline. The alternative lifestyle fell into the media spotlight on Wednesday thanks to The Daily Beast and Jezebel.
Both publications detailed the household arrangement, in which men dominate women using divinely-approved spankings. It sounds like a crude parody, but The Daily Beast estimates that thousands of couples have actually embraced the Christian Domestic Discipline way of life.
Two websites devoted to Christian Domestic Discipline both emphasize the absolute power of a husband over his wife, a situation that is purportedly supported by biblical teachings.

They should just call it BDSM because that's what it is. They just need a way to make like they're still good little Christians while they're doing it.
It is called Taken by Hand, and is a branch of BDSM. Very much practiced. Glad I am of neither group.
You and me both, Renee. I just do not see the value of a relationship where one dominates another. Every adult relationship should be a partnership. Period.
It is some people's kink. To me I am just too free spirited to be manhandled or dominated. BDSM though is a kink, and for some a lifestyle. You will discover all religions and no religions within this lifestyle. Some thrive on it, so bless tham. I will stay me completely, free, single and happy:)

There are many disciplining styles and tactics that are available to parents. But what is the line that separates acceptable and detestable?

I bring this up because some people think that the united states is trying to ban this altogether and think that it will result in more crime from children being allowed to get away with more.... what are your thoughts...

I'm a little old school. A swap on the bottom now and then but now that's child abuse. What is/was your method of discipline?

If your child does something wrong like hit you because you have not given in to his tantrum, what would you do? I have sometimes given a smack on his back for misbehavior.. is it fine or am i being a bad parent?
