So are you For Death or Against It? Pick Only One!

Where are all the pro-lifers and Church leaders when death sentences are handed out by courts and carried out by states? Don’t get me wrong, I am not “totally” opposed to the death penalty. For example if the day comes when Dick Cheney and his PNAC cabal are tried for invading Iraq and for their role in the events of 9/11 I will have no issues with continuing the American tradition of state sponsored killings.

What I do have a problem with is hypocrisy. If life is not to be taken then life is not to be taken. I mean some people are so crazy about their pro-life position that they would rather people suffer horribly through a painful death than take their own life in a painless dignified manner. These same people seem loudly silent however when human life is destroyed by their government. I won’t even get into the abortion or war issues; I will ask you only to look at the hypocrisy where it involves doctor assisted suicide and the death penalty.

Some people actually place the state over their God when it comes to taking life unless it is for a merciful cause. How scary is that? Think about it!

    I don’t understand how Christians can support the death penalty. Abortion is ugly and I don’t believe in it for myself but I am not my brother’s keeper. We play god in this country. We don’t allow nature to take it’s course. We keep people alive in vegative states but then kill someone because they kill someone else. I agree when the w bush administration is held up on war crimes I’ll be watching and throwing a party so I guess I am as bad as them. But something has to be done about the fact that 3000 died on 911, 2127 soldiers are died and probably more, and over 6,000 are missing from 829 that’s over 10,000 people who have died because the w administration stole elections. How many 1000s of inocent Iraqi have to die because 3000 died on 911. How many more of us will die this winter because they are cutting food and help with housing and heat. As Christ said many will come in my name and you will know them by their works. My question is how many Americans need to die before these bastards are impeached?
