Counseling Murder

Let’s say you placed a classified ad that said Everyone, let’s gather at 1234 Main Street, the home of John Smith Thursday evening at 9 PM. We will drag him from his house, and beat him to death so that his head is just a pulp.. You likely would get a visit from the police. However, if you were a Christian who put out millions of books calling for stoning any gay person or non-virgin bride to death, you would get away with this. I don’t think you should be allowed to get away with counseling murder, especially since thousands of people every year take these fatwas literally. Christians should have to repudiate these illegal commandments in their bibles. They could leave them for historical interest, but they should make it clear the church no longer recommends murder. If they refuse, the church should be disbanded and the clergy imprisoned.
