    Okay, I have.

    The reason some people who are pro-life can support the death penalty is because they view it as taking an innocent life as opposed to that of someone who has proved himself unworthy of living due to the life(lives) he has taken.
    Yeah but to me and many others, you can't really prove yourself unworthy of living, that makes no sense. You can prove that you are immoral and a murderer and worthy of being punished though.

    Sure it makes sense if you believe in things like karma, the law of cause and effect, an eye for an eye, and other grounds that people commonly use for making judgements. I assure you that if someone tried to kill me or someone I cared about, and I was in the position to act on that threat, they would be judged guilty and put to death on the spot.

    (serious question) Would you like me to explain more or would you like to read my response to Dav above?

    Neither will be necessary. I already know where you are coming from.

    Okay then all we're doing is playing our own opinions, which makes it pointless.

    So I'll leave.
