Smacking Ban Challenge Rejected
 
We had the cane or long handle clothes brush (flat paddle) and cane. Some boys were beaten on bare buttocks (1950’s 1960’s) and all the rest, that one does not (want to) write about – More4 Chosen ! Given a ‘free hand’ they would be no better now! We also had compulsory religion, which of course, made everything done to us – quite all right and normal! (normalization of the appalling and obscene – Biblical (fundamentalist) teachings) More4 Chosen http://www.channel4.com/more4/documentaries/doc-feature.jsp?id=224

Independent Christian Schools have had their attempt to overturn a ban on smacking pupils rejected by Law Lords
 
Teachers and parents had claimed the ban infringed their religious freedom to provide a Bible – based education.
Led by Philip Williamson, head teacher of the Christian Fellowship School in Liverpool, they said families should be able to delegate the right to smack.  But Lord Nicholls of Birkenhead said overturning the ban would not be in children’s “best interests”.
 
‘Encouraged to pray’
The claimants had said Corporal punishment of boys would take the form of administering a thin, broad flat paddle to both buttocks simultaneously in a firm controlled manner.
 
Girls could be strapped on the hand and then comforted by a member of staff and encouraged to pray.
 
Both the High Court and the Court of Appeal had already thrown out their argument.
 
During earlier court challenges, lawyers representing the teachers and parents cited passages from the Bible, including Proverbs Chapter 23:13-14: “Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die".
Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death.”
 
They also repeated Chapter 13: 24:
 
“He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.”

 
Since 1987, school teachers in state or publicly funded schools in England have had no right to smack pupils. This was extended to all types of schools in 1998.
 
In January this year, parents in England and Wales were banned from inflicting corporal punishment which causes visible bruising, grazes, scratches, minor swellings or cuts can face action.
 
The schools involved in the proceedings were the Christian Fellowship School at Edge Hill, Liverpool; Bradford Christian School at Idle, Bradford; Cornerstone School at Epsom, Surrey, and Kings School at Eastleigh, Hampshire.

Ref, sedentism or sedentary Human (Homonid) perpetuation of violence – perpetrate (an illegal, immoral or harmful action). Actions that are much ‘firmer’ in ‘modern sedentary society’; individually or on a cultural level – the ‘instinct to undertake the formation of religions or ethos-es’. Keeping the tribe together or an ongoing gang culture (and thus, ‘eat lunch tomorrow’). Complex long term ‘justifications’ for violence, relationship of self-harming and religion, which is of a – sophistical and philodoxical – nature: abounding in the modern superstitious, Education Departments and their Schools. Spotlight on Anthropology http://www.aqr.org.uk/inbrief/document.shtml?doc=simon.roberts.01-03-2005.anthropology

Hundreds of girls heavily sedated in UK care homes during the 1970s and 1980s may be at risk of having children with birth defects, the BBC has found. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7985912.stm

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting.

Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
