The Holy Bible Says ......

In Proverbs 13:24 The Holy Bible talks about parents who spare the rod also hate the child and the need to punish children diligently. When I think of a rod I am glad a rod was not used to correct my errant ways. Can we compare the Biblical rod compare to a thin switch or a leather belt? Would receiving corrective instruction by a belt or a thin switch be preferrable over a rod? My parents thought so and I am very thankful to both of them for that.

How does someone get "beat" by a thin switch? It is easy to understand a beating by a rod but a beating by a switch just cannot be believed. Yet government authorities are persecuting a man for allegedly "beating" his son with a thin, flexible switch. This man, who only wished to instill discipline in his own son, has been charged for using The Bible as a guide to administer a punishment less severe than The Bible calls for. 

Why is the government so interested in undermining  parental authority that is supported by Biblical reference?
