Again, the co-leader of the Maori party deems it necessary to blame the colonialists and Christians. This time they are being blamed for introducing smacking as a form of discipline for children.
Turia forgot to mention that up until colonial times Maori practiced the ritual of Taiki which was done to remove the spiritual nature of a fetus so that infanticide could be performed 'safely' after the child was born.
Nice! I think I would rather be smacked thanks.
