Also my opinion -- abortion is not murder, most of the time when people disagree with me about abortion it has to do with the beginning of life. I will discuss that in the appropriate thread. This is a death penalty thread.
    And I gave and example of the hypocrites anti death people people are.......

    More then LA and NY combined....... Liberals like you have compassion for rapists and murderers.. but none for the baby in the womb. I wonder if you would feel the same if God Forbid your mother, sister or someone else close to you was raped and murdered............Would you still have the same compassion for that scum of the earth?

    I definitely have my faults, But I do remember the sermon on the mount where Jesus said and I paraphrase " Render to Cesar what is Cesars and render to God what is Gods",.........The death penalty is legal law.

    I have compassion for all things that suffer. Since you appear to be a god fearing man, what ever happened to forgiveness? or this a tenent of religion that is not as important as retribution and sin?

But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    Perhaps we are using legitimize a bit differently. What they don't do is make it illegal. Therefore it's not murder. I believe it's unjust....but then I believe several legal things are unjust.
