The 'spanking' issue is not as important as other issues, but it is indicative of the mindset of the 'concerned secular' bunch.
1. If you spank your child and there is a mark, you get charged. If you rip your baby's head off ... (just before the baby is born) you get federal protection and the government will pay for it.
2. The same people who want to outlaw spanking (Canadian Foundation for Children, Youth and the Law) also want to remove the criminal law that disallows anal sex with a minor: See: 'Spanking is not sex' National Post - December 15, 1999
3. From Proverbs: If you spank a child he will not die, but you will save his soul from death.
