Fuqua, who is anti-abortion, points out that the course of action involved in sentencing a child to death is described in the Bible and would involve judicial approval.

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.

3. If he wants to go all OT lets check his closet for poly blends and his diet for shellfish.

 

If he wants to go with Deuteronomy I say let's hold him to Leviticus as well. If he ever laughed at some bald guy like Don Rickles send in the bears!

2. Does he want to burn witches, too?

Maybe children in Arkansas should go trick-or-treating dressed as Charlie Fuqua.

4. Charlie Fuqua is dangerous and should be immediately given the death penalty.

6. Would Mr. Fuqua support abortion if there were a way to tell which children would become rebellious?
