    Murder is just another word for killing. The only difference is its legal. So executions are legal murder.

    only if you choose to ignore reality and facts LMAO
    but if you wish to be honest then there is no such thing as "legal" murder

    that would be like "consented rape" no such thing

    That's false. All murder is killing, but not all killing is murder. Murder is a subgroup of killing.

    No, a blessing to those inhumane scum who would otherwise rot in prison for the rest of their life under horrible conditions and brutal work, but this blessing called the death penalty saves them from decades of hard work and horrible conditions that they deserve

    No, it's not just another word for killing. It's a word for a specific kind of killing.

    All murder involves killing

    Not all killings are murders

    They are similar, they are not the same thing.

    Executions are legal killings. The fact they are legal makes them unable to be murder as murder requires the killing to be illegal.

    Reality regarding the definition of the word just doesn't match what you're saying

    You know how all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares?

    You're doing the equivalent of trying to say that a rectangle is a square, it's just an uneven sided square (which by definition would make it NOT a square)

    How about if we get off the tomato/tomatoe routine? It is getting tedious.

    Time for a new thread.

    well the issue here would be that tomato/tomatoe can both be rationally debated and supported with facts on either pronunciation. Calling the death penalty murder cant be, is just wrong and silly.

    Re: Is the Death Penalty Murder?

    Murder Definition:
    Intentional homicide (the taking of another personís life), without legal justification or provocation

    The 2000 edition of Archbold's Criminal Pleading, Evidence and Practice:
    "Subject to three exceptions ( provocation, diminished responsibility and action in pursuance of a suicide pact), the crime of murder is committed where a person of sound mind and discretion unlawfully kills any reasonable creature in being and under the Queen's peace with intent to kill or cause grievous bodily harm."

    The US Code, at Title 18, defines murder as:
    "Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought."


    Murder Definition

    So no... the DP is not "Murder".

    Apparently you've never seen a dictionary. Words have meanings for a reason.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
