Pat Robertson advises a man to beat his wife.

Pat Robertson should retire. I think he is losing his senses. This is not the age to advise men to beat their wives. That is false doctrine! I really feel embarrassed indeed. In 2010, I wrote against wifebeating, and in 2012 we are still talking about it again. Violence: verbal or physical is the weapon of weak communicators.  We must encourage communication, negotiations, and tolerance to build relationships and not where one partner is the master and the other is the slave to obey acquiescently. 

 I don't think it was only sarcasm. Follow the thread of his conversation. After he finished his sarcasm, he still went back to say that, "something needs to be done." He did the follow up with silence, caesura, or a hiatus. By invoking that moment of silence, caesura or hiatus, he stretches the earlier thought into the present thought. No one should argue that he did not mean it. What was his proposition for remediation if he did not mean it?What should the man do with his wife who is stubborn and uncompromising? 

The man of God should have inquired from the man if they have living parents. He would have said, " you should talk to your parents let both families come together and iron out the differences." If it does not work, they should seek ecclesiastic or general counseling, but beating should not have even been an option.  What if the woman was stronger than the man? Who should beat the other then?  

Until then, " I like not that!"

“Bonyfish beware because the same net that caught the jawless fish, caught the cartilaginous fish” (Hamilton Ayuk). Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).

Southern Cameroons Should Keep Their Schools Closed For Their Own Good.

I hear talks of schools reopening because children can no more stay home. Is it that all those who were arrested have been released, or is...
