The news is filled with stories about the shooting of a 14-year-old schoolgirl by the Taliban of Pakistan. In the eyes of the Taliban, a child who calls publicly for the education of girls must be killed. They courageously made an example of her by boarding her school bus and machine-gunning her.
Meanwhile, in Arkansas a Republican candidate for Congress, Charlie Fuqua, has courageously endorsed the death penalty for rebellious children. Says Charlie:
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.
I guess I just don't see much difference here.
