A church minister has been arrested over claims he spanked. worshippers. Rev Howard Curtis, 72, allegedly persuaded worshipers to undress for him in the office of Coulsdon Christian Fellowship, in Croydon, South London,
The claims are believed to be centred around a movement known as ‘Christian Domestic Discipline’, which involves men asserting authority over women through physical punishment, usually spanking, the Telegraph reports
Three people have lodged assault. allegations against Mr Curtis a senior minister, who is believed to have been involved with the church for at least two decades.
The website of Christian Domestic Discipline says the practice is ‘intended to be a haven for married couples who practice safe and consensual’ discipline.
What in God’s name is ‘safe and consensual’ discipline, for crying out loud?????? And why on earth would you want to touch married women in their sensitive parts, all in the name of this ‘spanking’??
