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.

6th commandment, bitch! Suck on that, Fuqua (funny how his name sounds so much like what he is)
@ Filin De Blanc: More money than I will EVER make-even if I find a cure for cancer (plus an arm, a leg, a lung, a kidney, an eyeball and an intestine)!!!
I propose a "Life Is Sacred Until Birth" award for Mr. Fuquad...does anyone second it?

I would like to present this article as evidence that Mr. Fuqa is not to be allowed near children.

Just do a "faith healing" the next time little Timmy acts up, no need to clog up the courts.

America, please stop voting psychopaths into office. It will not end well when batshit-insane things like this are uttered by those in power.

"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."

Well, doesn't that tell you something? You are advocating something no parent would ever do.

Just out of interest, what was the content of your last election manifesto?

Of course many politicians are pretty loathesome individuals, but now they seem to be having some sort of contest to see who can say the most hateful, idiotic bullshit (with a biblical basis).

I'm quite surprised that publicly promoting infanticide isn't illegal. He would find himself in a bit of trouble here in the UK.

I bet Osama bin Laden's parents raised him the way Fuquit here advocates

How does this maniac have political power?

@Papabear et al.: The understanding of love such ones have doesn't seem to be all that much more than obsequiousness. Well, obsequiousness from the "lower" part of the lovebond. For the "higher" part, it's paternalization/condescension. Because they're so steeped in hierarchy being the foundation of reality itself, they auto-reject the usual understanding of "mutual respect" as self-contradictory.

Essentially, hierarchy isn't a means to an end such as goal efficiency, in their understanding. The hierarchy IS the end. One doesn't seek a high echelon to get things done so much as to attain the glory one allegedly deserves.

Hi sinner 2309520502750257205702412041ß248ß148 AKA Charlie Fuqua,

you are our hero down here. As everybody who defies what HIS son said e.g. Mk 10,14.
Be assured that you will receive a very special treatment....

CU soon

10/12/2012 9:02:55 AM


I was always of the belief respect must earned. Your idiotic attitude isn't earning any with me. Any parent who would use the threat of the death penalty to get their kids to behave deserves to have their kids taken away and have their asses thrown in jail for a very long time.
You are one sick bastard.

10/12/2012 7:21:25 PM


Um. Yeah. You are a fucking scary individual, Charlie.

Newly Enlightened

As an Arkansan, I look at people like the Clintons and say, "We produced some pretty good people, didn't we?"

Then I look at all the assholes like Fuqua. On behalf of all sane Arkansans, I apologize.

10/13/2012 6:10:06 PM


I did not think it possible to feel this kind of murderous hatred for another human being. If I simply cease to think of you as human, which isn't hard, then it is still impossible to imagine hating a rabid animal so much as I hate you.

America you have permitted this... thing... a position in life where it may well be able to enact such horror into law. It is your duty to your children to bitch-slap it into oblivion before it can harm them or anyone else you love.

Judges 11 is the story of a man murdering his obedient child. Is that why it doesn't count as the death penalty?

The fact that this man is a senator is extremely disturbing. Anyone who espouses such beliefs should never hold public office.

10/20/2012 7:29:37 PM





It does not matter how you dress it up, what florid euphemisms you use to soften the blow, at the end, you are advocating the killing of children for speaking their mind. And you think it's okay. Fuck you very much.

1/29/2013 6:01:57 PM


This is how they want to treat our children.

How the fuck does anyone with a brain side with these bloodthirsty freaks?

1/30/2013 5:48:12 PM


He wants to kill children. You know, "pro"-life.

After all, everybody knows that life begins at conception and ends at birth!

Crimson Lizard

No parent would do this, eh? You obviously never met my mother. She would happily have dragged my ass to the police station and had me killed. She's not unique, either... there are millions of horrible parents out there. Do you really want to give them all carte blanche to murder their kids?

Oh right, I forgot, you don't give a flying fuck! More power for you, that's all you care about, and if saying such horrible things will get you more power from the imbeciles you so ably represent, then all the better!
