On the subject of beating women, I would recommend that you read the book in this link:
Start reading from page 46. After reading, you will be convinced that some women actually like being beaten (in all cultures), and that beating them (lightly) is a cure rather than an infliction. Please read it, you will be greatly astonished!
OK women lets do the same to men, lets beat them if they don't obey. As far as I know God means man and woman, so it means both.
To be honest any beating is wrong man, woman, child or animal. The God I know and believe in is a kind loving and caring God. I no longe believe in any one kind of religion, but I love God and care about his world. As Jesus says the people in the churches are hypocrites!! Linda Critchley
