Possible Grounds For Execution In The Old Testament… How Many Death Penalties Are There? What Is A Literalist?
EXECUTIONS ARE BASED ON OLD TESTAMENT
Do you know how many sins there are in the Bible that are attached to the death penalty? Don’t feel bad.. not many people know that one. This article goes into why America still has a death penalty when no other civilized, democrat country has one. This article also itemizes the sins in the Old Testament Bible where the punishment is death. Finally, it goes into defining a literalist, first one way, then another. Count how many death penalties there are, as you go through this article.
Some people say that they believe in executions or ‘capital punishment’.
Do you support the death penalty and executions?
If so, why? If not, why not?
Think about it for a minute, before reading on…
LITERALIST SCOTT ESK SAYS ALL GAYS DESERVE THE DEATH PENALTY
In the video below, Scott Esk says that all gays should be stoned to death. Why? Because that is what the Old Testament says, and he claims that the death penalty is justified, as he is a literalist. Do you agree with Scott? If gays are going to be executed if Scott becomes President of the USA, then to make it fair to everyone, maybe everyone else that is breaking one of the Old Testament laws that are attached to the death penalty, should also be brought around and executed as well, correct? How would our legal system look, if the US justice system actually followed the Old Testament literally, as many literalist believers like Scott Esk desire?
If someone really wants to follow the Old Testament laws around capital punishment literally, there is going to be a LOT of capital punishment in the form of stonings and burnings, because that is the only ‘approved’ Old Testament way of killing someone…
This article dives and explores just how many things warranted the death penalty in the Old Testament, and potentially still do today. Believe it or not, there are still witches being burned, hung or tortured, around the world today. Do you agree with burning witches, just because they are witches? What if someone is accused of being a witch, but they aren’t one? Can they be tortured until they confess?
Do you believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible? Are you ready to do everything exactly as the Old Testament commands? At the end of this article, there is a surprise ending, so be sure to get to the end, and don’t stop in the middle. There may be more than one kind of literalist… For more on witch burnings, click here….
SCOTT ESK SAYS DEATH PENALTY FOR GAYS WOULD BE CORRECT
What follows are all of the ‘sins’ that are punishable by death in the Old Testament Bible.. Multiple (Islam, Jewish, Christian) religions are based on this Holy Book, so the focus of this article is interfaith and is in no way to be construed as focused on just one religion.
Another question to ponder is; would you consider putting in office anyone who believes in these ‘laws’ and literally making them happen, just the way that they are laid out? Think about these two things as you read through the following ‘sins’ which are punishable by death. Then by all means, vote for someone like Scott who will work to put these laws into place in the state or the US Congress/Senate, or President, if you agree with him, or don’t vote for him, if you disagree with his literalist viewpoint and definition.
EXECUTIONS AROUND BIBLICAL MORAL LAWS
(King Solomon reportedly had 700 wives and 400 concubines, and the Old Testament treated him as one of the wisest, best men who every lived. Adultery is also listed in the Big Ten Commandments. Jesus mentions it over twenty times in the New Testament. He even talks about “adultery of the mind.” 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. and some Christians interpret that as meaning that a man can’t even look at his own wife that way.“) http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Adultery
Self Proclaimed Conservative Christians Who Have Committed Adultery
Garner Ted Armstrong, televangelist
Jim Bakker, televangelist
Paul Barnes, minister who railed against homosexuals
Graham Capill, former leader of the Christian Heritage Party. Serving a 9 year sentence for assault on 2 girls under 15.
Senator Larry Craig (R-ID)
Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House of Representatives (R)
Marvin Gorman, minister
Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York
Ted Haggard, homophobic minister 
Rush Limbaugh, conservative talk radio show host
Senator John McCain (R-AZ), presidential aspirant
Bill O’Reilly, conservative commentator
Ronald Reagan, conservative, president and idol worshiped by many
Richard Mellon Scaife, billionaire bankroller of conservative crusades
Jimmy Swaggart, televangelist
Senator David Vitter (R-LA)
Dinesh D’Souza, Christian apologist 
Let’s continue with some more of ‘Gods sins’, which deserve the death penalty and execution via a vengeful and punishing God..
Men are not addressed at all, so raping a man if you are a woman is ok with God it seems, and men having sex before marriage even if they are engaged to be married, that is still ok. But why would God want to kill a victim of rape? It seems that in Islam they also have this same law, because they also follow the Old Testament. They consider a daughter being raped, to be a dishonor for the family, and they hate this enough to kill their own daughters when and if it happens. Should the US go back to the literal interpretation of this and start stoning all rape victims to death? If you agree, start voting in any politicians who are literalists, like the one above.
And if a male priest does this same thing by force, with a male or female child, it is ok, because the Bible says only men on men doing this with each other by choice is a crime punishable by death. Even if they are in love and married, and they have kids, it is really bad, and worthy of death. Hmmm, does this even make sense at all? What do you think? What do Jews and Islamists think of this? Is this REALLY how God thinks? Is this really how God wants everyone to act ‘literally’?
Did you know Dick Cheney’s daughter is a lesbian, and that Cheney is ok with homosexuals and lesbians?

More Possible Grounds For Execution in the Old Testament

If yes, is anyone left without having committed ANY of the ten Commandment sins, who can cast the first stone against someone who is ‘guilty’ of one or more of these, in the groups above?
LET’S PUT IN PLACE ALL DEATH PENTALTIES TODAY: THIS MEANS THAT THE ACCUSER HAS TO CAST THE FIRST STONE OR LIGHT THE FIRE
Few people who believe in capital punishment understand the point that the accuser of the person who is going to get the death penalty, is also required to actually do the execution, either by stoning or burning someone alive.
Raise your hand and bring a big stone or some wood and matches, because you will be the one doing the execution, from beginning to end. The assumption is that you will carry what is left of the sinner that deserved to die, to the grave and bury them too.. Let’s start with those who are saying that the Bible needs to be followed to the letter and all parts are exactly true and must be carried out, EXACTLY the way it describes..
Many people eat meat, but ONLY because they don’t have to kill the animal and butcher it themselves. If they had to do that, they would become vegetarian or vegan, because they can’t kill even an animal, much less a human being. It is easy to SAY you will kill a human, but it is quite another thing when you are looking them in the eyes, up close and personal. Of course, psychopaths or sociopaths have no problem with killing even large numbers of people, and they feel no remorse.
It may pay to make sure you are not following a sociopath or a psychopath who advocates the death penalty for everyone who violates the Old Testament laws… Also ask and find out of they are keeping all of these laws themselves?

Start By Executing List Of People Who Are Guilty Of Adultery Above
If the death penalty is enforced for all sins in the Old Testament, doesn’t this mean that one has to start with executing all of those individuals on the list of people who TEACH this literalist interpretation, and then broke one of the laws, verified and in public? (See list of people above, who broke the adultery law)
These adulterers and false prophets should be the first to suffer due to the breaking of these laws, correct? After all, they are TEACHING these laws. So why not be accountable for what you are teaching? The Old Testament is all about accountability and punishment, so let’s be fair about this.
So to anyone who is still willing to live by this Old Testament law literally and provide a good example for everyone else, please go form a group, and then round up these ‘lawbreakers’ with a posse of literalists, and start with the executions of that group first. Make sure to announce it in the local newspaper and on TV FIRST, so that everyone will be warned that this is GOD who is punishing these evil doers and God will be honored. Maybe, as George Carlin says, this could be a pay per view channel?
After all, God needs to set the example that we are not messing around anymore and God means business, right? Remember the story of Moses not following the command of God EXACTLY? Wouldn’t this be just like the Jihadists executing people by stoning in the public square for adultery, etc? They seem to be doing it ‘right’ when the literalist Christians are actually doing it very ‘wrong’. Hmmm, maybe these fundamental religions like Isis, Al Queda, and Old Testament literalist believers have much more in common than people think?
Where is that posse?
It seems everyone has left the building and gone home… is there anyone left?

What should be the punishment for those who covet their neighbors wife, house, or money? What punishment should there be for stealing, as in bankers charging interest, thus they are all guilty of usury? What should be the penalty for the military industrial complex that is killing millions of people all around the world? What should be the penalty for those who worship money and power ahead of God? What should be the penalty for those who swear and do not honor their mothers or fathers?

GEORGE CARLIN ON THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
In the video above, George Carlin has some ideas about the Ten Commandments, and updates them to present day. See what you think of them..
All deaths by executions are based on the Old Testament deadly sins list. But if we are going to base capital punishment on the list above, why aren’t we executing people for all of those ‘sins’? Just picking one at random and letting everyone else serve time in prison or even letting them go do whatever they want does not seem fair, right?
Obviously, AGRP is not condoning or supporting violence or murder, but when it comes to killing someone for murdering someone else, where is the justification, other than revenge? Life in jail for murder seems appropriate, and just. But is killing someone, just to prove that killing someone is a sin against God, really ok? Really?
If killing someone for a crime is just, then all of the crimes above should also have a death penalty attached to them, correct? We have to be fair, and carry out God’s instructions to the letter, remember…
What happens to the nuclear promoters who are responsible for millions of deaths, due to invisible radiation? Don’t they all deserve the death penalty as well?

Doesn’t it seem a little odd that the US ranks right up there with Iraq, China and Russia when it comes to executions, ahead of all of the other civilized countries in Europe, Africa and Asia for example?

WHY DO AMERICANS SUPPORT TORTURE AND DEATH PENALTY?
The Salem witch trials were all about torture. Anyone who thinks torture works, would be well served to go and watch the documentary movies that explore the roots of torture in the Salem witch trial days. How well did torture work back then? Was it effective in finding witches and getting them to confess to their sins? If not, why not? Once witches were found by accusation and then torture to get a ‘confession’, Old Testament laws were used to punish them with the death penalty. Of course, the accusers got all of the witches money and possessions, and that is one of the benefits of the Capitalist system, transferring wealth from the ‘sinners’ to the literalist ‘believers’.

If torture works, (justified by torturing witches until they confessed), then by all means, why not torture all potential criminals until they confess? If torture is ok for terrorists and it works there according to Dick Cheney and President Bush, why isn’t it also ok to do this to all criminals and undesirables like potential witches?
Is it time to set up witch trials and find not only the terrorists, but also the witches in our communities? Either torture works, or it doesn’t. If torture is legal, then bring back the rack, and all of the other torture equipment and give people degrees in torturing others, out in the open, not in secret CIA prisons. Either torture and the death penalty works and makes sense or it doesn’t and it should be abolished.

See if you can get the town to agree with you on this by announcing the mass torture and then execution of all of these people who deserve the death penalty by stoning or burning in the newspaper and on TV channels. Maybe a political party like the Republicans can announce this as a part of their campaign, with a goal of bringing God back into American government, the way it SHOULD BE… like in the good literalist old days.. and list the sins and death penalties as this article has on their website, plus ask for volunteers to do the executions. Put the Pope back in power and get rid of the ‘evil’ government. What do you think of this idea? (Check the 10 Commandments above) (sarcasm)
DO LITERALISTS BELIEVE IN SLAVERY, OR NOT?
Since slavery is ok in the Old Testament, maybe that needs to be brought back too? (sarcasm) What is a literalist anyway? How many literalists believe in slavery and how many don’t?

Maybe there is less that divides different religions and belief systems than some people like to believe. Maybe this death penalty and punishment by execution for homosexuals, witches and people who sell drugs, (but not priests who molest male children) is not really a division point at all, and it is just being used to distract people from the REAL issues.. . such as modern day slavery. Slavery still exists, but now it has taken on a different form.
