Range of capital offenses
favors capital punishment for a range of offenders; including
women who lie about their virginity, blasphemers, nonbelievers, children who curse their parents, male homosexuals, and other
people who commit acts deemed capital offenses in the Old Testament. North also favors capital punishment
for women who have abortions. North stated that the biblical admonition to kill homosexuals in Leviticus
is God's "law and its morally appropriate sanction", arguing that "God is indeed a homophobe" who
"hates the practice [of homosexuality] and those who practice it" and "hates the sin and hates the sinner."
North has said that capital punishment should be carried out
by stoning, because it is the biblically
approved method of execution and it is cheap due to the plentiful and convenient supply of stones.
North said: "We must use the doctrine of religious liberty to gain independence for Christian schools
until we train up a generation of people who know that there is no religious neutrality, no neutral law, no neutral education,
and no neutral civil government. Then they will get busy in constructing a Bible-based social, political and religious order
which finally denies the religious liberty of the enemies of God."
Adam C. English suggests that this quote implies that "religious liberty is a useful tool to Christians
in the present, yet is ultimately to be denied to anyone who is not Christian once the Christians are in power". English argues that although
this may seem inconsistent (advocating religious liberty but denying the reality of the notion), North and his fellow Reconstructionists
understand "liberty" in a theological sense. According to the Reconstructionists, "anyone outside of the Christian
faith is in bondage," and so "government by rigorous theonomy is not oppressive but liberating."
