You can’t spank your children… but the government can

Last Friday, on the 26th, a married couple with three children was sentenced to nine months in prison for gross violation of integrity, a crime that has a maximum sentence of six years, for having spanked their children as part of their upbringing them. The district prosecutor had called for a year in prison each and is considering appealing the verdict. For the story in English, see http://www.thelocal.se/30466/20101127/.

No evidence of the children having suffered any physical or psychological harm was presented, and the court states that “Nothing else has become evident than that the parents – apart from the actions addressed in the case – have had a loving and caring relationship to their children.” The parents had intentionally used spanking as a way of raising their children, as the third option after having discussed transgressions with their children.

The Swedish Apartheid

In most of the world, at least the industrialized parts of it, Jim Crow laws and Apartheid are things of the past. Though people may at some point have faced segregation and discrimination during historic times, this is not true in today’s world. Sweden differs tremendously in this regard, in that people without medical examination or very much evidence pointing to any actual disability are given stigmatizing psychiatric labels that set them apart from the rest of society. Even if psychiatry is highly active in all of the western world in diagnosing children with disorders, no other country to this writer’s knowledge changes the legal status of these individuals based on the labels they receive.

LGBT madness in Sweden

The new Swedish parliamentary session brings more insanity than ever before.. In the last two weeks, Swedish members of parliament have filed no less than 17 bills addressing gay rights, bringing the total filed the last eight years to 96 – at least that’s the number with the term “LGBT” in the title.

The Domenic Johansson custody case

It’s astonishing what a complete media blackout there is in Sweden on this matter. Though a large number of major international media players have covered the story, including independent news site WorldNetDaily, the Christian Broadcasting Network, the Alliance Defense Fund and the Home School Legal Defense Association, along with countless bloggers on the net, not a single newspaper in Sweden has done so. I just now performed a search on the Swedish search engine Mediearkivet, which includes just about everything printed in Sweden, and the only hits for either “Dominic Johansson” or “Domenic Johansson” were from a couple of blogs, apart from somewhat renegade Christian news site varldenidag.se, owned by the Swedish church Livets Ord and considered fringe media in this society. Not a single printed newspaper, and no other online news site than this one.
