Caught, and Spanked (Stories of J.G. Knox)

by J. G. Knox

Tne story: Carley is young, inexperienced and in love. She breaks the rules, is about to make love. Interrupted by Officer O’Holleran and a visit to the sheriff’s office, she goes home with her mother. Instead of new exciting feelings on her backside in the back of a pickup truck, she experiences old exciting feelings on her backside at home. A Christian mother, a Christian daughter, one learns the value of virtue; her life is changed by appropriate Christian discipline.

Afterward: The discussion: Corporal punishment is not the sole property of Christianity. Islam is even more specific and both the laws of Islamic states and culture encourage discipline. Is it different in any major world religion?

Secular societies tend to be different. In Russia, in 1917, after the victory of Communist forces over the Czar, corporal punishment was abolished in the schools, and a great experiment was set in motion in which the lives of the people of Russia were greatly changed. No religion, no corporal punishment, did violence decrease in the Communist world? If memory serves me correctly they executed more than 26,000 million people following their revolution. Has it decreased with the extreme decrease in the presence of religion and discipline in America’s public schools, as we moved to a more secular, non-religion based society?

Interestingly, Russia is now using corporal punishment for crimes, and their rate of dope addiction is dropping in those locations where possession of narcotics is punished by paddling, not imprisonment. The rate of violent crime in the Muslim world, where corporal punishment is required by law, ranges from 1 to 10% of what we have in America. Are there any studies based on sound scientific principles which support the elimination of corporal punishment? If there are, I haven’t found one.

Paddling, spanking, corporal punishment is becoming a crime, wrong, evil. Is it? God prescribes it in all the major religions. Is God wrong? Are the statics linking violent crime and lack of corporal punishment all wrong?

What is wrong, is doing it incorrectly. The purpose of this story, and the other books I have written is to show the right way, the non-abusive way to correct—by example. Hurting a child, spanking in anger, using a tool that can cause injury, these are wrong. Spanking with love is not. Causing tears of repentance and correction without harm in order to avert tears of a life irreparably damaged is right, not wrong.

And this is a discussion. No human who feels or has felt pain is completely objective on this subject. However, we need to discuss rationally.

I wrote this book in order to share the experience that we had moving across the country from Ohio to Phoenix. This is a true story of our adventure. Each and every one of us will have a different experience in life, and I wanted to share ours with you. It has been an exciting adventure, filled with drama, beauty, unexpected surprises, and most importantly, it has been educational. I hope you enjoy the book, and I hope you have the courage to take your own journey. A career opportunity took us there, and back again
