"If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it" - Loy Mauch, State Representative, Arkansas

"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.


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."

"God's Law: The Only Political Solution" by Charlie Fuqua, candidate for the Arkansas House of Representatives

One Christian politician defending slavery, justifying his position in part on the Bible, saying it couldn't be all that bad if Jesus and Paul did not denounce it. Another Christian politician suggesting that it should be made legal for parents to request unruly children be executed, again using the Bible as justification. And these aren't Christian politicians from a century or two ago. These are Christian politicians from the present running for office this very year.

If there is anything that destroys any claim the Bible has to be the foundation of morality, it is the type of thinking shown by these two Christians. They both substantiate their moral depravity - their profoundly evil way of thinking - using the Bible.

And based on the Bible alone - the supposed infallible word of God - both these Christian degenerates are correct in their thinking.

And every thinking person with an understanding of morality knows all three are wrong. The two Christian politicians are morally wrong; and the Bible is morally wrong in the guidance it provides them.
