Good theology. Politicians, as well as every one of us, need to carefully consider our attitudes and positions on life's issues. This is as true for pro-lifers as for Pro-abortionists. How many "pro-lifers," in lockstep with conservative doctrine, staunchly defend capital punishment?
The "Justice" System’s fundamental injustice, including its decisions about who receives the death penalty, never really dawned on me until I heard Paul Harvey deliver a special program clarifying the issue. Research continues to show that capital punishment kills people, irrespective of their guilt.
We conservatives glibly demand capital punishment for the “really bad” people, saying this world will be better without them. Will our enthusiasm for “taking out the trash” continue when we, because of our conservative activism, become the trash?
