    Then at the very least, we clear them from the gene pool. I'm fine with that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Justice is revenge dressed in a nice suit!

    I do not understand the mentality of someone who advocates life in prison over execution of a criminal. To sentence a person to loss of freedom, to the possibility of being beaten on a regular basis and to the possibility of being raped on a regular basis, is barbaric. To wish to continue to torture a person for life, because that is what it is, is indeed a barbaric mentality. That is cruel punishment. Execution is quick, permanent and solves the problem of the offender ever offending either inside prison or out of it, again.
    If I was sentenced for an horrific crime I committed, then I would demand the death penalty. I would rather die a quick death than suffer in prison for the rest of my life. I don't understand why anyone would seek to hold on to life in that situation.

    and you just condemn almost every victim of rape to death since the rapist has absolutely no reason to keep his victim(s) alive

    I absolutely do not support the death penalty for anything short of premeditated murder, which has been proven beyond any trace of doubt. Pedophiles and child rapists are disgusting, but if they don't kill the child, they do not deserve the death penalty. That being said, if it was me, and my child or grandchild, and I caught him in the act, I would shoot on sight. As a juror, though, and an objective, reasonable, non-involved party to the crime, I can't support the death penalty, because justice implies equal measure.

    It would seem to me then that we need to make prisons safer for prisoners to spend their lives. I fully support working towards those ends. I do not however support the idea that state has a license to kill us.

    Exactly how I feel about it. Some people need wiped from the planet but I don't find it desirable to give the government such authority.

    I think in some cases-like the two who raped and murdered a woman, raped and burned her daughters to death and there was absolutely no doubt of their guilt (CT), the surviving husband/father should be given three hours, a blowtorch, crowbar and a complete pardon for all that transpires in that 3 hours

    Count me in with this, also.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
