Clueless Clayton: Putative Theologian!

“In the Bible…it explicitly says, ‘Be stoned if you get divorced.” This morning Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Clayton Morris showed that he is no Biblical scholar. Nor is his co-anchor Tucker Carlson.

In an exchange between Clayton and Tucker about the Kentucky clerk of court who refuses to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples, they pretended to know Scripture: I.e, they both posited that the Bible advocates stoning to death of those who are divorced. Clayton noted that she had been divorced (as he has been) and declared that there was a lot of hypocrisy: He declared, “In the Bible right? It explicitly says, ‘Be stoned if you get divorced–to be stoned to death.”* Chiming in, Tucker, said, “That’s the Old Testament!”

Sorry, Clayton, your spurious assertion is in neither the Old or New Testaments. Stoning to death pertained to an adulterer or an adulteress–not a divorcee. (Deuteronomy 22:22). Clayton and Tucker, please just stick with the facts–and don’t try to wing it!
