Bible quote of the week: "If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son...all the men of his town shall stone him to death."

Bible quote of the week brings you the wit and wisdom of Bronze Age and Iron Age barbarians God's Word. This week:

Deuteronomy 21:18-21
"If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son... all the men of his town shall stone him to death."
18 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, "This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard." 21 Then all the men of his town shall stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid. (NIV)
Or they could go to some sort of family counseling. Just sayin'.
