    So wouldn't that mean the executors deserve to die?

    I take it we are supposed to believe you value life with a position like that.

    It's the difference between justice being served, as opposed to the taking of an innocent life. The murderer takes the life of someone who has done nothing to deserve it. The executor provides the means of justice being served when that innocent life has been taken.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."

    Yes, I'm sure that is what he meant. That is to say I respect the distinction.

    I do, but not for those who have proven to not value others.
