The 'Christian' movement that tells husbands to SPANK their wives 'to correct misbehavior'

Presented without comment...

"A growing number of married American couples are agreeing to allow husbands to keep their wives 'in line' by taking to corporal punishment.

The trend is called Christian Domestic Discipline and much of what is known about the practice is published on the website Learning Domestic Discipline , published by husband and wife CDD duo, Clint and Chelsea.

 A hairbrush is one of the listed items sanctioned for spanking on in the Beginning Domestic Discipline packet

The website states: 'It is an arrangement between two adults who share the belief that the husband is the head of the household and with that position comes the right to enforce his authority.'

Clint and Chelsea have also written a 50-page packet on the practice called Beginning Domestic Discipline.

In the packet they describe CDD as a ‘practice between two consenting life partners in which the head of household (HoH) takes the necessary measures to achieve a healthy relationship dynamic.’"

It's This Type Of Nonsense That Gives Christianity A Bad Name

Whosoever teaches this garbage ought to be removed from the pulpit and beaten to within an inch of his life..


Even so, the people that teach unscriptural gobbledegook are certifiably nuts!

These people are no better than the thugs that pose as troublemakers, I mean lawmakers in DC and enact law that is unconstitutional..

Revelation 2

Reminds me of Revelation 2

12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Ooops, someone who wears Kinky Boots

got into the hierarchy.


If I were the woman I would file charges.

I've heard of this

It's rare, one of those things that only exists because we live in a world of billions.

Less rare is the abuse cycle and if you follow the emotions described in the "process", this is a ritualization of the abuse cycle. It's possibly even the packaging of it to introduce into non-abusive marraiges, but I can't see how a marriage would ever allow it in if it wasn't an abusive marriage in the first place.

Do they go it to the erotic nature of spanking and domination?

Does he explain we the erotic stimulation is essential?

Or why it is written that Stockholm syndrome is something you induce in someone you cherish.

Some Christians are perverts first and Christians second.

Free includes debt-free!

Am I the only one

Who sees this as someone looking for a Biblical backing for S&M? Not that I care what they are into, but...

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

I don't doubt that

some are doing that, or considering it a side benefit, or just the man considering it a side benefit, but there really are Christian communities that hold theologies that wouldn't unequivocally lead to this, but it gets you 90% of the way there. A lot of effort, even in more mainstream Christianity, has been put into a theological justification for corporal punishment of children and such things can be re-packaged for a marriage if you also have a theology where the man is responsible for what everyone else does. Also, there are misogynistic threads in some communities where everything that's wrong in a marriage is automatically blamed on the woman for not being submissive enough, even when the husband beats her, so that thinking could justify this drastic measure to increase the mythological level of submissiveness. Add onto that a heaping helping of legalism within a cultish church and these things can happen.

If you ever see a video of Debi Pearl, look into her eyes. I'm not saying that couple practices this, but if you wonder how a marriage gets to the point it would accept this, the answer is in her eyes. I'd post an example link, but I seriously can't stand to see her deceptive, blank smile enough to vet a link for you or to wade through the other creepy stuff the couple says. She's not just masking her own misery, she has let enough of her person-hood die that she can no longer feel misery. And then they use her ability to still plaster on a fake smile to sell misogyny through her book Created to be His Helpmeet.

Defend Liberty!

I guess

it takes all types.
