Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)
Good thing so few of us live in Israel.
If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives." (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)
Pretty much took care of that one on our own, can you say AIDS?
Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB)
Kept my sons on the straight and narrow. They do their fighting in bars where it is supposed to be done.
If a man commits adultery with another man's wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

But if this charge is true (that she wasn't a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father's house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)
Well, duh! Obviously you don't want to be bumping nasties with virgins at her Dad's house, tap that action in the back seat of a car, or take her back to your place you cheap bastard! And clean the place up first too, she is giving you her maidenhead, the least you could do is sweep the old pizza boxes under the bed. And go steal a new roll of toilet paper, that would be a thoughtful touch.
The bible would do great as fuel.
