Republican candidate Fuqua endorses death penalty for rebellious children

Submitted without comment.

Oh, hell, I gotta…

This is another reason that fundamentalists and other bible-thumpers should be prohibited from being around children:

The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline. Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents. The death penalty for rebellioius children is not something to be taken lightly. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21

Let’s break this apart:

  1. The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline.” This has an unsupported premise. And, “The maintenance of civil order in society” is an awful weight to lay on both parents and children. The reason that the economy in Greece is in a shambles is because not enough parents killed their children, I guess. We should also blame bad kids for the movie theater shootings in Colorado. Which children, I wonder? Are we restricted to only those children already in state custody, or can we go into the neighborhoods to find children we believe do not demonstrate our particular brand of “civil order”? Also, wives (or the feminine relationship actor) must also be interrogated and persecuted for their contribution to the discipline problems of the children. Of course, the wives are also expected to toe the line or be disciplined themselves. I think we subject the moms of troubled kids to the first scene from “Big Booty Stars“. Maybe the daughters, too, as a reminder of their role. Just remember to put it on video and post it. For posterity.
  2. Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents.” Of course, there is no other way to demonstrate the importance of respecting parents. Nothing except modeling good behaviors, having positive role models, or, I don’t know, acting out the best parts of the bible.
  3. The death penalty for rebellioius children is not something to be taken lightly.” This is true. I can’t think of a single case where it would be an acceptable punishment.
  4. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21” Yes, in the same section and book as lessons on holding and treating your slaves, treatment of victims of rape, and eating shellfish.

if you live in Arkansas, please do your best to make sure that former Republican legislator Charlie Fuqua stays former.
