“What your husband reads online can get you beaten to death when pregnant!”
Our lives now have recently started revolving around links; those our friends share with us, those we come across on Twitter, Facebook, Mixx, Stumble Upon, Digg and so on and links that we find and share! It is safe to say that, due to social media, links play a very important role in shaping the way we think, what we believe and what we do as well!
As a result of this deduction, it is very important for us to pay attention to what we share online. We now have a responsibility towards those people we interact with online; they depend on the information we share and we must always try to validate the information, when possible, in order not to cause or promote chaos, aggression, violence and drama!
The following is an example of something that happened with me a few days ago: I was going through my Mixx shares and I came across an article entitled:
8 Reasons Why God Hates Denmark [we decided to remove links]. I am a curious girl so I clicked on the link and read the post, which in my opinion, was not that impressive. However, I then saw a disturbing title of an article: Start hitting your child with a rod 16 weeks before birth! [link removed] Written by a man who calls himself a “True Christian” who is promoting violence against pregnant women in efforts to educate their unborn children!
Here’s a part of the annoying and insulting article:
“All loving parents know that you have to hit a child with a rod to properly raise it.”
God is very clear about that:
* Proverbs 23:13-14 “Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.”
* Proverbs 13:24 “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.”
Less clear is the perfect age to start doing this. Fortunately True Christian™ science has now finally solved that mystery.
Using advanced ultrasound scans of a fetus, True Christian™ researchers have found that connections in the fetal brain are not fully formed before 24 weeks. In practical terms this means the best time to start hitting the child with a rod is about 16 weeks before it is born. Usually this is also a period in which your wife starts neglecting her duties so you can hit two birds with one stone by hitting hard with a rod on the belly of the pregnant woman. Make sure to be forceful enough, otherwise the child will not notice!“
Finally, I’m looking forward to your thought and insights about this topic: Do you think it is a serious issue? Have you ever came across such links?
