In a YouTube clip unearthed by the Friendly Atheist, a Texas pastor is seen exhorting his flock that the best way to control “rebellious ” teens is to take one and stone him or her as a warning to other obstreperous youths.
In the video, Pastor Jonathan Shelley of Pure Words Baptist Church in Houston, rails against teens who refuse to listen before turning to the Bible for advice on how to bring about order.
“[Kids are] going to continue being more rebellious, more mocking, more arrogant, more prideful. You see, it’s never enough,” Shelley lamented. “They just want to keep mocking their parents and disobeying their parents. You’ve got to squash out the rebellion in your child.”
He then made his suggestion to his flock.
“You know how you could squash rebellion in a public school today?” he asked rhetorically. “Take the rebellious one out and stone him. I bet they’d shape up pretty quick. I bet they’d figure out, ‘Maybe I should hearken under the authorities in my life.’ And we see, unfortunately, our society is continually destroying itself, because [all of these] rebellious, arrogant, prideful teenage jerks that just don’t want to hearken to their parents, you know, and God said they should be put to death.”
In particular, Shelley singled out gamer teens.
“The guy that’s the lazy gamer, ‘I don’t want to get a job. I just want to play video games all day and drink alcohol with my buddies,’? That guy should be put to death,” the Christian pastor counseled.

Trump and the GOP stand for ‘blaming others if you’re not happy where you are’: Democratic congressman
Unapologetic about his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color, President Donald Trump stood smugly by at his Wednesday rally in Greenville, South Carolina as his supporters attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) with chants of "Send her back! Send her back!"
In conversation with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) denounced it as just standard operating procedure for this president and the party that elected him.
"I want to talk health care, but ... [Trump] ain't going to campaign on health care," said Cuomo. "He's going to campaign that there's something wrong with the way you look and people like you are a little bit of a danger. And we're a little bit better off when you guys stay where you were before you were here. That's his campaign. He is confident. How do you counter?"
Maddow shows lewd retro video of Trump bragging about planting open-mouth kiss on TV host — and then it gets worse
A new lewd video has been released that shows President Donald Trump admitting to grabbing Faith Daniels, who was married at the time, and planting an open-mouth kiss on her while her husband wasn't looking. Daniels then said it would cost Trump and he would have to do her show.
"Her husband is a handsome devil, but he had his back turned at the time, so we had a good time," Trump told the audience.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow noted that this is the thing women consistently accuse Trump of doing and Trump bragged about doing on the "Access Hollywood" video.
"You are seen in a company of lots of beautiful women," Daniels said.
MSNBC’s Maddow: Trump is freaking out because of what is about to unspool tomorrow morning
President Donald Trump is likely trying to use his recent racist attacks on four Congresswomen of color as a means of distracting from two other significant scandals he's facing this week, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said. Both of the scandals will likely "unspool" Thursday morning in the same New York courthouse.
First, beginning at 10:30 a.m. EST, a judge who has been presiding over the campaign finance case in which Michael Cohen was involved, intends to release information involving who else was named in the case. That investigation is pending, and the judge is releasing the sealed documents that were related to the case.
