    Yes, I do believe all life is sacred and should be preserved if at all possible.

    Sacred stops when you cross the line from innocent to criminal

    lol...There are crimes and actions that merit death as a punishment, or as the result of self defense, war, etc. Do you agree or not?

    I agree with self defense and war. Hence my addition "if at all possible." In order to preserve your life and other's lives you must take another. However, it is not a crime to kill in self defense or in war.

    I disagree.

    The over-religified south cannot be trusted to be fair, honest, or just in their application of the death penalty. Therfore, they CANNOT be allowed to have it. To be fair, the northern states should be barred from the death penalty also.

    Texas specifically should NEVER be allowed to use the death penalty. These are people who fought for the right to execute mentally retarded people.

    2 million dollars is not enough of a settlement. That man spent half his life in prison. THe republicanazi douchebags that put him there need to pay out 500 times that amount.

    And "Life is sacred" does not extend to saying a murderer can't be sentenced to death. Is that ok with you?

    That is not ok with my. Why is the life of a murderer not sacred? Why do we have the right to determine that someone is no longer worthy of living? Is it ok for strict countries to punish people by death for blasphemy against religion, infidelity, or speaking out against the state?

    Whoa there!

    We do not live in a theocracy. The government of the United States (of the People, by the People and for the People) has determined levels of punishment for various crimes. That includes the death penalty.

    Yes, but that does not address my question. Why do those countries have the right to enact the death penalty for crimes they deem are worthy of death? Likewise, what separates us from them? Why do we have the right to say X crime merits the death penalty? If it's because "the government has the right to make laws and enact the death penalty" then so do other world governments for whatever reason they want. You may disagree with other nations having crimes that merit death, but by the same logic they are justified in their sentencing if the logic is simply "government has the right to determine levels of punishment for various crimes."
