    It's the same point and significance of people having pink flamingos in their yards.

    Hmm, seems a little excessive I think.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing regarding my neighbor's giant inflatable jack-o-lantern, but some people go all out with their Halloween decorations.

    That's what I mean though, what deterrent? So there is a guy's dead body crucified, I don't see that as a deterrent. Now if he were crucified still alive THAT would be a deterrent.

    Yeah...Halloween and outdated, dark ages modes of punishment may be two different things.

    Wait, this crucifixion/beheading thing isn't a Halloween decoration?

    I thought they were going for authenticity.

    I can't get behind this. While I agree with the death penalty, I think that penalty is a misnomer in describing my philosophy about it. The death sentence should only be carried out in a civilized society when there is obviously no hope of rehabilitation for the criminal. The criminal demonstrate no remorse, no repentance, and all signs that he would repeat the offense. It should be reserved for criminals so dangerous that in the improbable event of escape, someone else will surely die. Even a small risk like that is unacceptable. The death penalty should be approached with a heavy heart that a human being is being terminated but with a clinical mentality that a clear and present threat to society is being eliminated.

    All this beheading and crucifying crap is just barbaric and over the top.

    So the Christians, and I use that term lightly, won't feel left out?

    The most liberal of all the Saudi Kings. I wonder what Saudi Papi would do.
