Rick Santorum:

Unlike Islam, where the higher law and the civil law are the same, in our case, we have civil laws. But our civil laws have to comport with the higher law.

Absolutely! We need to start getting serious with our children:

He that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death. (Exodus 21:15)

He that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death. (Exodus 21:17)

The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it. (Proverbs 30:17)

Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. (Psalm 137:9)

Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. (Proverbs 22:15)

And, of course, women:

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. (Ephesians 5:22-24)

Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. (Corinthians 14:34-36)

(Since Michele Bachmann has "Biblical worldview", she'd no doubt be strongly in favor of these new civil laws regarding women.)

Can't forget those filthy, filthy queers:

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13)

And on, and on, and on, and on...

Of course, Christian nuts will claim this is all taken out of context. But the only context that would make it acceptable would be to preface each excerpt with "You'd have to be a bloody moron to believe that..."
