Current Pope Not Much Better

Once again the pope demonstrates how out of touch with reality and community values he is. Recently the pope announced that it is okay to hit children so long as their “dignity is maintained”.

I quickly Googled the word dignity and here’s the response:

dignityˈdɪɡnɪti/noun
  1. the state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect.
    “the dignity of labour”
  2. a composed or serious manner or style.

The Miriam-Webster dictionary says:

: a way of appearing or behaving that suggests seriousness and self-control

: the quality of being worthy of honor or respect

Somehow I can hit my children so long as I maintain their state of honour or respect or that they are worthy of honour or respect? Okay, I might leave that for you to figure out.

Anyway this seems at odds with the Vatican Commission…

And finally, a little visual for you on smacking children developed for the USA.
