Hey, Salman, It Was a Fatwa, Not a Smackdown

It’s bad enough that the BBC has reported that a compromise bill has been reached in the UK, which will allow parents to “smack their children with moderation.” But apparently Salman Rushdie is one of the people hoping for a total ban on smacking. Rushdie wants to “give children the personal freedom not to be hit.” Rushdie doesn’t seem to have any ideas, however, on how to enforce it.
