We send weird messages to our children when we go hard against violence against women, politically packaged as domestic violence, then we say "spare the rod spoil the child" in defense of beating them. I don't care that these words may appear in the Bible. What if the rod the author spoke about was the rod of our intelligence, the rod of common sense, the rod of patience, of prayer, of conversation? What's a rod anyway? Is it something like the gospel plow? I dunno. You know that part of the Bible about slaves obeying masters? We don't take that literally. NOTHING on the McDonald's menu is conducive to treating our bodies like temples. That's in the Bible somewhere right? Btw don't ask me how I know the whole McDonald's menu. What if we took the part about loving our neighbors as ourselves literally?
