Republican Candidate In Arkansas Says Parents Should Seek Death Penalty Against ‘Rebellious Children’

By Judd Legum on Oct 8, 2012 at 6:50 pm

A candidate for the Arkansas legislature, Charlie Fuqua, says children who don’t demonstrate “respect for parents” should be put to death, the Arkansas Times reports.Fuqua is a former member of the Arkansas legislature and has received support from the Arkansas Republican Party and two sitting members of Congress.
Here’s the key passage from Fuqua’s 2012 book, “God’s Law: The Only Political Solution“:


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 rebellious 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:

Fuqua helpfully notes that “This passage does not give parents blanket authority to kill their children.” Rather, parents would have to “follow the proper procedure in order to have the death penalty executed against their children.” Fuqua assures the reader that, in his view, the procedure would “rarely be used.” The threat of death would, however, “be a tremendous incentive for children to give proper respect to their parents.’
Fuqua, reached by the Huffington Post on the issue, declined to comment.
Fuqua’s book previously came under scrutiny for advocating expelling all Muslims from the United States. In response, Fuqua said he believe his view on Mulims were “fairly well-accepted by most people.”

Death penalty for kids who don't listen to their parents....HA

I for one believe death penalty should only be reserved for serious crimes...

He also believes all muslims should be removed from the US and called black slavery a blessing in disguise.

Scary that these types of people actually get elected. Glad I don't live in those areas.

This guy SURELY never had a kid...

kids are designed to disrespect/disobew their parents, my nephew with 1 year and 3 months runs around the house destroying everything, trying to climb the stairs, turning on and off the lights, trying to open the closet and destroy his mommy clothes, trying to destroy his mommy cellphone, tries to destroy my cellphone and my computer, pointing for everything, tries to understand who the clock works (he says "tic-tac" everytime he sees a clock :) )

and the only one with energy enought to follow him it´s me! the Uncle Rodrigo :)

It's

Thou shalt honour thy mother and thy father.

Not

Thou shalt kill thy children if they freakin' act up.


Why are these god people always so keen on misinterpretation?

He's not talking about the 10 commandments. He's referring to verses like these:

Deuteronomy 21: 18-21

If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they discipline him, will not listen to them, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives, and they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This our son is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones. So you shall purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear.


Leviticus 20:9

For anyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death; he has cursed his father or his mother; his blood is upon him.

Can we not associate all religious people with the people who take it to the extreme. That is all I have to say.

Unfortunately in the US of A such religious whack jobs seems to have great deal of power in the Republican Party. If they were only a fringe element then perhaps your caution would be noteworthy.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Never try to teach a pig to sing - it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

So let me see if I have this right... do not kill the "unborn" but wait until they are born.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Heard about this weeks ago.

He should off himself then because he was a little bastard at one point too. He's been on death row for the last 50 years.
