If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the
voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they
have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
Then shall his father and his mother lay
hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto
the gate of his place;
And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn
and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die:
so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear,
Kill your children if they don't obey instantly!
In my country such people go to prison, but here they are obeying their
loving and merciful God.
