We all know the ethereal punishment for the sins we commit. But what about Corporal Punishment for the sins we commit.
I was reading a post on Curt Jester, when I read a comment which suggested that the Wall street Protestors are guilty of covetousness and therefore should be punished by “39 lashes each followed by a cold shower from a fire hose with lots of lye.”
I responded to the commenter by querying what corporal punishment would be mete for someone committing the sin of arrogant pride.
Covetousnes is a sin, but it isn't illegal, so if this commentor is right that sinners should receive corporal punishments well, ....that lead me to think what corporal punishments would be appropriate for the following sins.
I will note that committing murder, and stealing lying under oath whe testifying are criminal acts and therfore punishable by law, the punishments are not corporal, except for murder in states (nations) that steal have the death penalty, and Arab states that will detach a hand of theft and whipping for adultery.
So put your suggestions in the commbox
Scripture to keep in mind
Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth:  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.  My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
