This book advocates corporal punishment in children as young as 6 months old.

Brandt Found a quote from the book from one of the reviews here on goodreads.

"If you want a child who will integrate into the New World Order and wait his turn in line for condoms, a government funded abortion, sexually transmitted disease treatment, psychological evaluation and a mark on the forehead then follow the popular guidelines in education, entertainment and discipline, but if you want a son or daughter of God, you will have to do it God's way.

The anti-spanking campaign is a front for an anti-family agenda, a progressive socialist movement to reengineer society with government the only mentor of children. A few well placed individuals in government, media, and the educational system religiously promote a new world order where the collective state replaces God and the Constitution. They must control the minds of the citizenry if they are to institute their totalitarian policies; and they are well aware from history that mind control must begin with the youth—thus the public school system. But homeschool parents and Christian parents protect their children from corrupt worldviews. The socialists know that the last remaining bulwark against brainwashing children is parental headship—thus their hostility toward the family."

What a freaking psycho you must be to write stuff like that..

On the other hand, i dont think book-banning is the way to go, that seems like something the church would do..
It's the behaviour this book encourages that must be stopped, not the reading about it..

Hazel | 214 comments normally, I don't go in for book banning, but this book takes the biscuit, and it is only on the market in the first place because the author published it himself.

And to be fair, the petition isn't to ban the book, its to ask Amazon not to sell it as it breaks their own rules about content etc.
