It is you, Mr. May 26, at In the most serious situations, murder, r ape of a child, and the like, it should be an option available to the jury and judge. Outlawing capital punishment is not unlike a mandatory imposition for certain crimes in that it takes the judgement out of the trial and sentencing.

Either way, Christians will do what they always do May 19, at 4: It is unfortunate that Christians are forced to defend atrocities like state-sponsored slaughter and the killing of animals for pleasure because the bronze-age ignorants who wrote their book projected such human failings on their dim view of the divine.
But the revolutionary evolutionary theological theory of Pandeism supersedes and washes away these debauched remnants, because Pandeism is the true theological model of Peace!!

Joel Tolbert of Georgia May 15, at It is in the bible. So is killing your children for being disobedient. So as soon as he kills one of his children the next time the kid comes home drunk, I'll agree with him. Until then, he's just another hypocrite- choosing only the scriptures that he can use to support his own bias.
He will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard. May 12, at 7: May 11, at 2: I feel quoting the Bible by verse looking for reasons to inflict capital punishment on another is the same as quoting the Koran by verse. I feel it's a fundamentalist, extreme view in order to justify yet more murder, a blood lust to act as God.
Why not leave punishment for intentionally inflicted murder up to God, or better yet, Jesus? There are so many contradictions in the Bible that one forgets what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount "Blessed are the Peacemakers: Inmates convicted of Capital Murder have changed lives in prison even while serving life terms.
We should be seeing the Bible and other Holy Books as paths to redemption—isn't that why Christ was supposed to have come, to offer salvation to anyone who believes in Christ?
If not, then what does the New Testament really mean? Perhaps Christ refuted everything in the old testament, and man got his hands on Christ's word and convoluted it to justify eternal suffering. Finally, what does the author think of the innocent who have been executed I know someone will come in here and say "prove an innocent man has been executed".
Kind of hard when we take Jesus out of the picture and murder murderers ourselves.
Maybe religion can be used to justify the innocent being killed as "collateral damage". May 11, at 7: The rest of your post is silly. We know that man wrote the bible, it was done over the course of many years somewhere around by men who never met one another. We know that there is zero evidence to support that those are anything more than the written word of man.
To clarify, I don't support the death penalty but I do support ensuring punishment is dealt with in the here and now where we can be guaranteed it is jail time til they die works best.On January 12, , a year old Californian wife and mother of three children died from drinking too much water.
Her body was found in her home shortly after she took part in a water-drinking contest that was sponsored by a local radio show.
Since my celebratory post last week on the City of Los Angeles plastic bag ban, this gruesome photo came to my attention.
For those of you out there who still aren’t convinced that banning plastic bags is a good idea, then you must take a really good look at this photo of plastic bags found in a dead sperm whale’s stomach.
I used to be in favor of the death penalty, but no longer. I don't think the imposition of the death penalty deters people from raping and killing others, especially if those criminals are high on drugs or extremely greedy with money.
May 01, · The death penalty was explicitly grounded in the fact that God made every individual human being in his own image, and thus an act of intentional murder is an assault upon human dignity and the very image of God.
