Taliban Reiterate Vow to Kill Pakistani Girl While US Candidate Advocates Death Penalty for Children

The police said Friday that they had made several arrests in connection with the Taliban’s shooting of Malala Yousafzai, a 14-year-old education activist who was critically injured, but militant commanders in northwestern Pakistan reiterated their intention to kill the schoolgirl or her father.

The headline chills the soul. But it is not much different than the beliefs of someone who considers himself worthy of state office in the United States.

So someone please explain again to me how Christian and Islamic Fundamentalists differ? ~Via

Charlie Fuqua, a candidate for the Arkansas assembly, advocates the death penalty for rebellious children.

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

Oh wow, really, Charlie? ~ed.
