At first glance, Christian Domestic Discipline might seem like Jesus-approved BDSM, but it is actually much, much worse… because it is not for erotic purposes. Where’s the fun in that? Also: WTF. According to ChristianDomesticDiscipline.net:

A Christian Domestic Discipline marriage is set up according to the guidelines set forth in the Holy Bible, meaning the husband has authority over his wife within the bounds of God’s Word and enforces that authority, if need be, through discipline including but not limited to spanking. He uses his authority to keep peace and order in his home, protect his marriage, and help his wife mature in her Christian walk.

Right. Got it. Another zinger:

That a patient, yet firm, across the knees bare bottom spanking (hand or paddle) or whipping (switch or strap) is personal, humiliating, and painful is well known. “It’s supposed to [hurt].” That is precisely why, if the practice is not abused, it can be a very effective consequence or discipline! As a few husbands have discovered, once he has thoroughly prevailed, even an implied threat of another may be sufficient to straighten out marital difficulties for some time to come.

God help us.
