The catholic Left hangs on every word that the Pope has, might, could utter about global warning and redistribution of wealth. They can’t wait to see the next airplane presser or daily off the cuff fervorino, which they hold to have virtually magisterial authority. When he says something about not talking about abortion or not judging a homosexual, he can’t possibly be wrong. Pope Francis! The first Pope ever to smile or kiss a baby, the first Pope ever to preach mercy can’t possibly be wrong about anything… except perhaps anytime he mentions anything about women… but I digress.
Una volta ho sentito in una riunione di matrimonio un papà dire: “Io alcune volte devo picchiare un po’ i figli … ma mai in faccia per non avvilirli”. Che bello! Ha senso della dignità. Deve punire, lo fa in modo giusto, e va avanti…. Once during a marriage meeting I heard a father say: “Sometimes I have to beat the children a little… but never in the face, so as not to humiliate them.” How beautiful! He has an understanding of dignity. He has to punish, but he does in the right way, and he goes forward.
I look forward to discussions among the catholic Left about the proper way to beat children. Should fathers use a stick? A belt? Just the hand? How about mothers and a wooden spoon? Just make sure to avoid hitting them in the face and you are good to go, and maybe watch your strength. Right?
I am confident we will learn a great deal from their unhesitating support for Pope Francis’ comments today about beating children.
