    So if you personally were going to write laws out of the bible, it would only be the New Testament. Thanks for answering.

    Let me take a real look at this.
    What does he mean by child--- anyone under 18.. under 30? What age?
    I am pro-death penalty for violent crimes like murder, rape, and child abuse. Depending on the crime and his definition of rebellious I could be pro-death penalty for a "child".
    IE a serial killer at 18.. 17.. 16.. I would say yes. 15 under would be harder.. the younger you go the more blurry the lines for accountability get.. Like a 5 year old playing with another 5yo'd privates is way different than a 30 yo messing around with a 5yo.

    Wait, are you trying to say that the Bible isn't specific enough for us to know exactly what was meant?

    One of the first obstacles one would have is deciding which version or interpretation would be used. Then there are some who interpret it one way and others who interpret it another. Some people follow all of the Bible and some portions. I am not saying anything negative but if laws were to be written then these things would have to be decided somehow. Most likely the answer would be what it has always been in history - who ever is most in power decides what the bible should say and how it should be carried forth. Then, when that person's term is finished, the next in power would decide the same according to his thinking.

    I do not think anyone's religion supports the death penalty for rebellious behavior. I do see lots of people who apparently are insane and commit heinous acts - all of the place. We can sit here and make a list of crimes all over.

    This man whoever he is, is a nutjob who somehow got stuck in another era and needs to wake up and realize we are a place of freedom, or at least trying to progress that way. We are a nation which has a large number of Christians but we are NOT a Christian nation.

I can't help but believe that he is being hidden by an Islamic community that agrees with what he did.

    Ummmm..what? Blame the messenger?

    I won't even touch the Muslim comment. There are plenty of Muslims who do not feel that this is appropriate.

    That actually wouldn't be a Christian point of view ... but a Jewish one. Christians don't believe we have to follow the laws in the old testament. But if we use the term the same way as Obama does about Muslim countries... we are a MAJORITY Christian nation.

    So you probably wouldn't like it if the government started enforcing the OT, huh?

    well, this isn't true at all Gloria. There are PLENTY of Christians who do follow the Old Testament. But it doesn't matter if we are a majority Christian nation - we don't make laws here according to religion for the masses to follow. We have laws which do fall in line with many, many religious values of ALL sorts of religions and even secular beliefs. Said person probably needs to reconsider his own feelings towards this country because they are not in line with the values we have.

    I don't really think that would work out. Muslim countries are still enforcing those kinds of laws just like the Taliban is trying to do in Afghanistan. That is why they are stoning gay people and trying to kill teenage girls that want to go to school. The laws enforced out of the New Testament are not only good for Christians they are good for society.
