We have also allowed those with mental health issues to roam free, given a pocketful of medication and the hope that they'll actually take it instead of institutionalizing those who need it.

Our society has become untenable. Parents, teachers, academics, and progressives in general are to blame. If many of the teachings laid out in the Bible were followed, there would be a great deal less crime.

Or more?

Exodus 31:15
'For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, holy to the LORD; whoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death.

Do you cheery pick what you follow in the Bible or to follow all of what is written?

Not in the least, since I outlined just one reason why they don't respect them. Try and keep up.

The problem is that kids do not:

So that is the problem. In the same paragraph and in the next one you state very clearly WHY they should NOT respect them.

So if they should not respect them why is not respecting them a problem?

Matt 2:27 "The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath."
Understanding the relationship between the Old and New Testament (Covenant) as it pertains to Christians is key to understanding the Scripture, not "cheery" picking.
