    This is an excellent video on the use of corporal punishment in Korea which clearly differentiates between acceptable and excessive corporal punishment. Every Irish teacher should watch this.

    This is an excellent video on the use of corporal punishment in Korea which discusses the difference between acceptable and excessive corporal punishment.

    Two things strike me about this clip.

    Firstly, the Koreans have a calm rational approach to the subject of corporal punishment while we descend into Mary Rafter type hysteria every time this topic is discussed especially in the context of the RCC in schools.

    Secondly, those instances of excessive corporal punishment caught on camera are carried out by male teachers in a secular system which gives the lie to the idea that RCC schools were uniquely harsh and that the punishments were exacerbated by the sexual frustration of Christian Brothers. In fact, the incidents of excessive corporal punishment portrayed in the video closely resemble some of the accounts taken from the Ryan Report. Buddist Korea in 2012 is like Catholic Ireland in 1960.

    Try telling that to the liars in the Irish media and the deluded social liberals who want to pin every social evil on the influence of the RCC.

    Have to say the stamps would do John Hind proud.

    Would like to see the name of the country displayed more clearly on it.
    The printing is a bit microscopic.

    Someone in An Post seems to get off on religious commemoration stamps. They have a long record of this sort of ass licking.

    Appropriate that the name of the country for which they were printed is in much larger lettering than the name of the country of issue.

    It's a Vatican stamp not an Irish one.

    Your so anxious to get out of the traps fast to spew anti religious bile that you forgot to put on your spectacles

    The stamps were not issued by an Post and Ireland is not the country of issue.
