A new Christian movement advocates husbands spanking wives when they misbehave.

It’s a new trend called "Christian domestic discipline" which is raising some eyebrows.

It’s part of a 54-page document that encourages spanking and punishing of wives in order to maintain an orderly Christian household.

They describe CDD as a “practice between two consenting life partners in which the head of household takes the necessary measures to achieve a healthy relationship dynamic.”

That translates to all methods of punishment, not exclusive to spanking.
