Good Christian morality entails biblical encouragement to beat one's
child with a rod, I see.

Please, may I be spared encounters with good Christians.

Let's end right now the insidious doctrine that beating a person –

contradicts anyone's good Christian morality, then good Christian
morality is dead wrong and needs to be rejected.
