The Debt Thing Turns Out to be Talibangelical

You hear a lot of screaming from the right about scary Muslims implementing Shari'a Law, but screaming about scary Talibangelicals implementing Mosaic Law? Not so much, though it's way more scary.

This enforcement of the Mosaic Law will involve the application of the death penalty for such capital crimes as murder, rape, kidnapping, bestiality, incest, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, idolatry, witchcraft, the offering of human sacrifice, unchangeable rebellion in adolescent children, flagrant negligence resulting in the death of another person, blasphemy, apostasy, the spreading of false doctrines, and perhaps Sabbath breaking.

The reconstructed society will regard dissenters and heretics as treasonous criminals at war with the law and society.

The reconstructed society will also be characterized by the rights of private property, a free market economy bordering on libertarianism, tight limitations on debt, the abolition of 30-year mortgages, a monetary system based on the gold standard, the tithe rather than public taxes financing most social welfare, restitution of wrong rather the imprisonment for many criminals, and voluntary slavery for purposes such as the restitution of a wrong or the desire for financial security.

No wonder they seem so crazy.

Saw an article in the Boston Globe this AM militating against 30-year mortgages (see above).
