|lcd, do you believe it is moral and required to murder children who do not listen to their parents, under biblical law?|
You mean those children who do not listen and then rob, kill, steal from and worse? I do not have a problem with Capital Punishment. Indeed, I think it is used too sparingly in the US.
You're speaking of this passage:
Deuteronomy 21:18-21 KJV
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 is easily seen that this is not a run of the mill misbehaving kid. This is one who has done much wrong. So to kill a child is not really an issue. The person is a drunkard, so they are not small, and they are breaking many laws.
So killing a child who sasses? No. Using Capitol Punishment on your offspring who is committing serious offenses such as murder, yes.
Obviously an adult, then.
Because minimum age drinking laws existed a few thousand years ago.
And, sorry, "strubborn and rebellious" describes 99% of teenagers. It doesn't say murderer.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
