Charlie Fuqua, a former Arkansas Department of Human Services attorney and Republican candidate for Arkansas State Representative, believes that God's law's as set out in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible should be adopted as the law of the land in the United States of America.
Incredibly, this is the same insane goal shared by many ultra-right-wing religiously oriented politicians and their mad followers in America today; they just aren't as vociferous about the plan as Mr. Fuqua. His candidacy is being bankrolled by established Republicans in the state, including the party itself and the House Republican Leadership PAC.
If they ever have their way little American children would be stoned to death without the benefit of a trial or any due process for the "crime" of sassing their mommies and daddy's.
Imagine that – a Department of Human Services attorney running for state office who endorses the death penalty for naughty boys and girls. That’s his idea of government enforced human services in the twenty-first century.
Homosexuals, adulterers, and the like; well you can also imagine what he thinks should happen to them. “Stone ‘em; throw ‘em into the fire; kill ‘em all.”
In his book “God’s Law: The Only Political Solution,” Charlie explains that he supports killing wayward kids because that’s what the Bible provides. “The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline,” he writes.
“Therefore,” he concludes, “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,” explains Fuqua,”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.”
Not to be taken lightly? Would be rarely used? Maybe Charlie ought to read the scripture again before he introduces this bill in the state legislature:
Deuteronomy 21:18-21 (King James Version)
18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
20 And they shall say unto 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.
21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
It appears from the broad language of this law that there is no age limit; it would still be applicable when the child is 40 years old, indeed, right up until the death of the parents, as I don’t know of many little kids who are also gluttons and drunkards.
Fuqua has another hair up his ass about the “Muslim problem.” He thinks that it could be solved by expelling all the Muslims from America. He explains on his website that liberals and Muslims have formed a “strange alliance” around their links to the “antichrist,” because, “they both deny that Jesus is God in the flesh of man, and the savior of mankind.”
Oh, yes, and prisoners who cannot be “rehabilitated” within two years should just be executed to save money according to Charlie.
It’s all part of what many Republicans want for America:
God’s law: Kill ‘em all.
