    I don't know if it's a he or she, it hasn't been entered, but I agree. It makes me wonder what planet some people are from, it certainly isn't from anywhere around here.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I feel that he/she is unaware about a large number of things. Frankly, I smell hosiery.

    I think we'll probably see the end of the death penalty in the US...before a new international government takes over and reinstates it.

    I think rapists, human traffickers and people who intentionally inflict permanant disabilities on others should be eligible for the death penalty even if nobody died. One of my biggest problems with it its it takes so long to be carried out.

    With all of the time and caution we take, all of the appeals, we still **** up and kill innocent men far too often. I can't support taking those precautions away.

    Me too. The stench of legwear is strong with this one.

    I get that and for a long time I was a proponent of capital punishment. However, I have since changed my mind. I keep coming back to the old saying that it's better to let 10 guilty people go then to incarcerate 1 innocent one. The same should apply to the death penalty. Killing one innocent should be enough to scrap the system. Also, I now feel that decades in a tiny cell does more pain to the inmate than the easy way out.

    I would support the death penalty for the rape of a child under the age of ten years old. I would myself be willing to pull the switch and do so with a smile upon my face.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
