Charlie Fuqua an Arkansas legislative candidate endorsed the idea of stoning disobedient children to death. While his view may seem shocking to some, it is completely consistent with biblical law. The Ten Commandments, as delivered by Moses directly from God, are not requests. They’re commandments. The violation of any one of them, including honor thy father and thy mother, are considered by god to be offenses worthy of death. If we are a Judeo-Christian nation, bound by these beliefs, then stoning an unruly child to death should not be considered abhorrent but merely a manifestation of God’s will.
When would-be Senators Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock made their statements concerning rape they too were being consistent. If a mother carries a baby created from rape to term she has no right to kill it because of the way he or she was conceived. If life begins at the moment of conception then there is truly no legitimate reason to kill that life because it was created from a rape.
