    The question about spanking is laced with humor and is quite hilarious.

      Yes, I was highly amused by it.

      I wonder who did the search.

      (I know a woman in her fifties who gets spanked by her husband. But that is mostly in fun.)

    In addition, I would like to state that after some deliberation and unfortunate events (e.g. locked by police, stayed in hospital) that I have decided to become a Catholic Christian while travelling the European continent. May the blessed virgin Mary, mother of God, be with both of us forevermore.

      That is good news.

      I hope you are happy as a Catholic. I am after all these years and everything that has happened.

        Why all these emphasis on Mary. Sounds gynocentric to me.

        Mary complied with God’s call for her to be the mother of God.

        She obeyed her husband St Joseph as the head of the Holy Family.

        Mary is the Queen of Heaven, who always points to her son the redeemer.

        So Mary’s job is to glorify Christ not herself then, yes?

        Yes.

        The technical term for the level of respect ordinary people owe Mary is hyperdulia.
