Retired English Teacher
Good evening everybody!
I've just found this sentence in a U.S.A website article.. and I really don't understand...:
"He's already had a God-smack and he's going to try to get another one again."...
Thanks to you in advance.. to explain to me what is the meaning of "God-smack"
Some Bible-thumper actually said that. If you click here, you can find the above mentioned phrase highlighted.
Incidentally, Godsmack is an American rock band.
(Source: Wikipedia)Sully Erna stated in a 1999 interview that "I was making fun of somebody who had a cold sore on his lip and the next day I had one myself and somebody said, It looks like God just smacked you in the face for making fun."
I hope this helps.

I guess a God-smacking is less severe than a God-smiting.
Don't worry about learning this "word." You'll never need it again.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
.OK, ~Mav~, I think now that it could mean roughly "god-punishment".. is'nt it?
.Dear Barb_D...I don't worry! I just try to.... understand as exactly as possible!
Thanks ++ and a very pleasant day..to you !
