    Sort of depends on how thick the stick is.
    Must not be thicker than your thumb.
    The Thumb Rule.
    Not valid in the advanced state of North Carolina since 1874.

    There was an 1868 case, State v. Rhodes, where a husband was found innocent because, the judge said, "the defendent had a right to whip his wife with a switch no larger than his thumb," and in another case in 1874, State v. Oliver, the judge cited the "old doctrine, that a husband had a right to whip his wife, provided he used a switch no longer than his thumb" but continued on that this was "not law in North Carolina. Indeed, the Courts have advanced from that barbarism...."

    What if you haven't got a thumb?
    Would that mean that you couldn't beat your wife at all?
    How is that fair?

    I live my life by the Sean Connery code of conduct, and he says it is okay to slap women if they provoke you or you've tried everyting else.

    (I am not sure we should judge all Scots by his beliefs, though.)

    Would you ever slap a guy in the face if he did NOTHING phsyically to provoke you?
    If so, why would you think you could slap a man in the face and him not retailiate?

    Why do I have to realize that? I'm protesting it as well.
    I've made a thread about it and some of you women are STILL finding something to bitch at me about. WTF IS YOUR FUCKING PROBLEM BELLS????????????

    Can you have one without the other? I mean, knowing someone you love could physically attack you has to hurt emotionally, too, right?

    that is a good point.

    emotional abuse can be very subjective but physical abuse is NOT.

    Not really but like being emotionally messed with is more mysterious than to be physically hurt because at least you can know what going on. I was kinda looking passed the fact that someone would bring your point up.

    Feminazis have you believing that anytime a woman is hit it is wrong. THey got you good.

    It's okay for a woman to slap a man when he leers at another woman. WELL, the article said,

    Dude,

    Financial infedility is equivalent to sexual infidelity. Don't fall for the woman crap.

    The customs and practices in Islamic nations will change just as they did In the Christian West.

    From a 1868 North Carolina court case:
    "We find that the defendant struck Elizabeth Rhodes, his wife, three licks, with a switch about the size of one of his fingers (but not as large as a man's thumb), without any provocation except some words uttered by her and not recollected by the witness."

    His Honor was of opinion that the defendant had a right to whip his wife with a switch no larger than his thumb, and that upon the facts found in the special verdict he was not guilty in law. Judgment in favor of the defendant was accordingly entered

    And here is something I copied where some Christian Americans are still thinking a bit like sexist Moslem men:

    Question:
    Is it Biblical for a pastor to discipline his wife?


    Answer

    Not only Pastors, but all husbands have the right to discipline their wives, because the scriptures mandated that the husband is the head of the wives
    .

    1 Corinthians 11:3
    But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
    1 Corinthians 14:34-36
    Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
    Ephesians 5:22-24
    Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
    Colossians 3:18
    Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
    1 Timothy 2:11-15
    Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing.
    1 Peter 3:1
    Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands.

    According to the Islamic view, a man does not have the right to beat his wife except in a few cases, the major one being infidelity. The wife can naturally take this to court, and if the man is found to be unjust, then the full strength of the law shall be dealt to him. In the Islamic tradition, a man is only allowed to hit a woman with a small twig (miswak plant), not to beat her but to emotionally show her what she did was wrong. It should not leave any mark. Also, it is quite common for women to beat men also in Islamic societies, there is nothing in Islamic law to discourage this, especially in the case of infidelity.

    Beating for the sake of beating is unacceptable, and punishable by Islamic law.

    As for the OP who started this thread, your personal attack on SAM completely discredited your espousal for 'women's rights.' You should be embarrassed for what you said.

    Hence, the Islamic view does in fact give the right to beat your wife, as you've quite plainly admitted.


    What wonderful traditions Muslims have. Gosh. I want to be a Muslim so I can beat my wife with a twig.

    Really, so the Islamic view is to resort to violence rather than discussion. Why not just say so?

    There is nothing in Islam to discourage violence. Wonderful religion you have there.

    But, beating for any other sake is perfectly acceptable. Ah, the Islamic life...

    You should be ashamed of your religion. I certainly am.

    Lol, this is funny. All of you are fucking useless because none of you can take the lables off people and realize that in this world there are smart people and idiots. You all are idiots because you bring something like that up. It's like saying look America has a black president they are all slaves. (I would not piss on people like that even if they were on fire.)
