Do christian parents spank
No one can fault Jonathan Merritt for lack of audacity. In a recent article he dismisses the majority opinion of evangelical biblical scholarship in one sentence. Well, it is because he, Michael Eric Dyson professor of sociology at Georgetown University , and social scientists say so. Merritt seems to write with the assumption that the witnesses he has assembled should settle the matter for all of us. The short piece reads more like a tantrum than a thoughtful interaction with the issue. Merritt joins much of the media in seizing the indictment of NFL player Adrian Peterson by a Texas grand jury for reckless or negligent injury to a child as an opportunity to denounce any use of corporal discipline on children.
