Quote# 33946

You see, people don't understand capital punishment is a great deterrent. Especially if it is public and you take your kids down and you watch someone get stoned [.....] and your kid says, "Daddy, what did they do?." "Oh, he was a bad person. He did this, this, this." You're going to impress on that little kid - he's never going to do that.

Yes, we all know countries with capital punishment has such a lower crime-rate.
It appears you fail at criminology too "doctor".

Move to Iran and shut the hell up.

Mister Spak

So we should execute tax cheats?

I'm assuming he wrote this before his jail term.

Lt. Fred

Really worked for Dickensian England, Kent!

Hmm, I wonder - is Kent Hovind opposed to violence in secular films?

1/22/2008 12:02:13 PM


Barbarism for jesus award?

Also, get stoned, Hovind. And you can take that any way you like.

"get stoned"

Good advice, take it.

@nintendofreakgcn: yes, he is.

Of course, real-life violence is perfectly fine, and a good stoning is wholesome family fun.

Did any of your kids watch you get jailed for tax evasion? I wonder if they learned from that, that tax evasion is bad, or that it's mainly bad 'getting caught'.

If capital punishment was that great a deterrent there would be nobody on death row.

Mattural Selection

I wonder if that would include stoning for not rendering unto Caesar?

1/22/2008 12:38:09 PM


Tax cheats first then unless you want to fall in the "moral relativism" trap and argue about magnitude of sin.

1/22/2008 12:47:53 PM


And then you tell the kid about Thou Shalt Not Kill and Turn the Other Cheek.

1/22/2008 1:08:42 PM

statistics say otherwise. Why?, because people commit crimes for a series of reasons that don't include the possibility of getting stoned. After all, let's asume this kids say, "what did she do daddy?", "she was raped in the town, son"

1/22/2008 1:17:56 PM

Apparently, it didn't work with you.

Sir Michael L. Foley

I love to get stoned and watch others do the same! Thank you for the encouragement, Ken. *calls up some friends*

Why limit it to public executions? Why not public floggings for jaywalking? Or branding with hot irons? That would get your rocks off, wouldn't it? You could sell tickets and televise the whole thing.

And you are an example to my kids of what happens you try to lie to people with a fake diploma and steal from the government.

1/22/2008 2:46:25 PM


A little Ray Charles for the singalong:
Let's go get stoned...

Capital punishment has been around forever. It's never been a deterrent to crime.

Kid: Why are they stoning that man to death?
Adult: Because sweetie he was a bad man
Kid: What did he do?
Adult: He cheated on his taxes. He flaunted disrespect for the government. In addition, he told lies all the time and twisted data to appear to support his position..
Kid: Wow. That's awful. But stoning him to death seems awful harsh. Can't we find another way to punish him?
Adult: Read your bible!
Kid: (reads bible...throws rock)

1/22/2008 3:49:26 PM

Yes, and witnessing horrific violence is never damaging to a child's psyche. God I hope you don't have children, you sociopathic nimrod.

1/22/2008 3:55:07 PM


"Daddy, what did he do?" Son, he cheated on his taxes and lied to the government about it. This is money that could have helped fund the school lunch program that got cancelled. It could have helped a lot of people but this lying, cheating sack of self righteous shit is going to swing from the end of a rope if I have any say about it.

1/22/2008 4:11:55 PM


"Especially if it is public and you take your kids down and you watch someone get stoned..."



Here, hit this...

1/22/2008 4:59:40 PM


Shall we start with Tax Fraud then?
