Quote# 90031

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[...]

This passage does not give parents blanket authority to kill their children. They must follow the proper procedure in order to have the death penalty executed against their children. I cannot think of one instance in the Scripture where parents had their child put to death. Why is this so? Other than the love Christ has for us, there is no greater love then [sic] that of a parent for their child. The last people who would want to see a child put to death would be the parents of the child. Even so, the Scrpture provides a safe guard to protect children from parents who would wrongly exercise the death penalty against them. Parents are required to bring their children to the gate of the city. The gate of the city was the place where the elders of the city met and made judicial pronouncements. In other words, the parents were required to take their children to a court of law and lay out their case before the proper judicial authority, and let the judicial authority determine if the child should be put to death. I know of many cases of rebellious children, however, I cannot think of one case where I believe that a parent had given up on their child to the point that they would have taken their child to a court of law and asked the court to rule that the child be put to death. Even though this procedure would rarely be used, if it were the law of land, it would give parents authority. Children would know that their parents had authority and it would be a tremendous incentive for children to give proper respect to their parents.

Doubting Thomas

And where did you pull this explanation from?

Regardless, you're still advocating that killing disobedient children is/was a good thing.

10/11/2012 8:35:46 AM


Un-fucking-believable. This creature is an elected politician and he wants to kill bad mannered kids. What idiots elected him?

The Crimson Ghost

Is this ballsack actually suggesting that parents kill their children according to HIS recommendations?

Congratulations Mr. Fuqua-you are now on my list of "people that I think would be better off in a landfill".

10/11/2012 8:47:12 AM


So you're advocating murder. I can't "WTF" this enough!

Also, his surname looks like a funky spelling for "Fucka". How fitting.

What sort of psychopath would vote for Chuck Fucka?!

ARKANSAS...this explains it all (no offense to the few sane Arkansans...both average schmoes & The Clintons)!

Wanna bet this bozo will practice what he preaches & gets tossed in the slammer?

This is as silly as when my grandmother said Gypsies would kidnap me if I misbehaved.

"This passage does not give parents blanket authority to kill their children."

Well thank goodness for that, for a second I thought you were some kind of infanticidal psychopath.

How much do you want to bet that Fucker is "pro-life"?

10/11/2012 8:55:31 AM


Holy fucking FUCK! How does this monster have political power? Why is this country so full of fucked up representatives? It seems to be every other week that I hear about another deranged politician letting loose his verbal bowels. And that's just counting the ones that speak up. How many have the same stone age views and keep them to themselves?

Why can't the GOP be normal?


10/11/2012 9:11:04 AM


Well what about the Prodigal Son then, eh? Dad welcomed him back, didn't he?

10/11/2012 9:23:11 AM


Your mother should have killed you while still in the womb.

10/11/2012 9:23:45 AM


It's taking a lot of restraint for me not to say "Kill him!".

10/11/2012 9:29:27 AM

Doom Nugget

Oh, well as long as you are following the proper procedure then I suppose that makes everything alright. /sarcasm

10/11/2012 9:39:21 AM


Let's be practical here. For this law to have its desired effect, you're going to have to allow the elders to kill a few kids from time to time. Otherwise, the snotheads will just ignore and hate you the way they do now.

Can't wait for the Fuqua kids to write about growing up with this pinhead as a parent, so I can put it on a shelf next to Nate Phelps' book.

Hey, Fuquad, read this:

3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

That's John 8; right from the fucking Bible.

Jephthah - why do these morons not actually know their own holy book

10/11/2012 10:02:00 AM


You think obedience through fear is a good way to bring up children?

Shut the fuqua up. Again.

Hold on... you are a state representitive?


10/11/2012 10:07:36 AM


Party of personal responsibility, all right. Why teach the little bastard some manners when you can just kill him?

Charlies is considered part of their intellectual wing by the Arkansas GOP.

10/11/2012 10:19:49 AM


But no abortions under any circumstances, amirite?

10/11/2012 10:21:48 AM


You know nothing of human psychology, do you? Threatening kids with death will not "give parents authority" so much as make kids hate and fear their parents. I mean, if I thought my folks were planning to have me put to death, I might just protect myself by striking first. The will to live is a powerful thing.

10/11/2012 10:28:56 AM


Is this shit for real?

10/11/2012 10:36:02 AM


At least he acknowledges this is in the Bible. Though it is still fucked up scary. He proves the immorality of the Bible

10/11/2012 10:47:12 AM


and yet they have the gall to call themselves "pro-life"

J. James

Is it just me or is genocide and infanticide starting to become a theme for the GOP? This is bad. For the Republicans, the fringe doesn't stay fringe for long. Before you know it, fascism will have come to America wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.
