    He should not beat her like he would beat an animal or a child -- slapping them right and left.
    Ah yes beating the kids nice and good is ok though. And I can't punch a dog in the face now, dang.

    At least it is teaching them a nice way of beating their wives.

    Re: Article on How to beat your wife - Saudi style

    I saw a Kuwaiti man beat his wife. I'm talking blood spatter, here. To this day, every time I see an Arabic male, I think of that. And a couple things that aren't for polite company.

    Well, first, wife-beating has NEVER been advocated by any major Christian religion. And second, WTF does "100 years ago" have to do with it? Yer talking out of your hind-end, sir.

    I understand, though that sometimes you have to "reach" in order to be an anti-Christian Bigot.

    Sorry for the way I phrased that earlier. What I meant to bring out was, their belief about women is of the same mentality as one other major faith was a few years back.

    I would strongly disagree there. True, spousal abuse may have been more common 100 years ago, and kept hidden and maybe even more socially acceptable, but I do not ever remember hearing where it was anything actively promoted by the church.

    Okay, I'll accept that.

    One of the many problems with Islam is the tribal nature of its adherants, and the confusion of "tradition" versus "religion".

    But, still, the Islamic faith is much more friendly to spousal abuse, violence and war. The problem is going to be moving these guys out of the 11th Century before they obtain nuclear weapons.

    Re: Article on How to beat your wife - Saudi style

    Well, I have to take some issue here (and partly because I am a theologian by trade).

    There is a big difference in the "oppression of women" in Christianity, even 400 years ago and Islam today. Beating has never been advocated in an widely accepted form (in other words it is not a part of mainstream Christianity - if you talk to someone like Fred Phelps, who knows). The type of oppression that most people speak of in Christianity is that of control or power in church, and somewhat in the home. While some may not like this, it is a far cry from "let 'er rip" on your wife.

    I agree completely. The christian church may never have advocated the beating of women, but it did promote that wifes should be submissive to their husbands. Now, to me, it seems like that could be interpreted as allowing beatings, or just that women are "inferior" in stature to men. The mentality is similar, if not the same, and it's affects can be the same.
