Pope Says It’s OK to Spank Children

By Melanie Batley

Pope Francis says that spanking is justified as long as it preserves the dignity of the child and is not done in the face, USA Today reported.

“One time, I heard a father say, ‘at times I have to hit my children a bit, but never in the face so as not to humiliate them,'” the Pope said during comments Wednesday at his general audience in St. Peter’s Square.

“That’s great,” Francis continued. “He had a sense of dignity. He should punish, do the right thing, and then move on.”

And a huge question is pushing itself out through tears:

Is it also OK to rape children if you are sure that you are not humiliating them?

Do children have the right have to say if their dignity is preserved, if humiliation occurs, if the right thing was done, if they can move on?

VATICAN CITY — Members of Pope Francis’ sex abuse commission have criticized his remarks that it’s OK for parents to spank their children, saying there is no place for physical discipline and that the panel would make recommendations to him about protecting kids from corporal punishment.
