What's so interesting about it? I'm presbyterian, go to church every weekend, wear two crosses on my person. Yet I believe in the death penalty... in some cases.
I think he meant that you should all be against the death penalty given what Exodus 20:13 says, I think. Maybe he finds the links interesting?

Interesting....
these people need to read the Bible a little bit further, beacuse in the Bible it say eye for a eye, I don't know how you inturpret that but to me it means if you do somthing then in return that thing must be done to you

you chose to leave out the last bit there i think it's actually an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Anyway i don't see why non christian people (and there's a fair few of them out there) should follow the bible. I don't think religion can be used as an argument

True but I've seen it advocated as a poor excuse to justify the death penalty for supposedly Christian countries. A prime example is the USA. Yet if A stabs B, does B have any right to stab A back? No.

I also think religion cannot be used.

You are right, religion cannot be used. Too many people use it as a reason for opposing sertain things, and for going along with others. Its not a good reason to do anything, no matter HOW devout a worshiper you are.

Injustice.
The death penalty should be abolished because people may be wrongly penalised. In addition the bible says- you should not kill.

Makes me wonder how England could ever have had the death penalty when Christianity took over as the religion from paganism. Which means James I and Henry VIII in particular were idiots

If you believe in the death penalty then you must also believe that the justice system is 100% perfect.

On one hand it would be nice for the various killers who are regularly demonised in the tabloids to meet just as gruesome an end as their victims. However, keeping people such as Huntley et al alive is necessary to prevent the next justice system fu*K taking away an innocent persons life. Which is and always will be the outcome in a justice system that includes the death penalty.

Hear Hear. Our justice system can be improved greatly.

Why? I may be religious, but I never use it as a fallback. I never lean on my religion to get me out of situations that I've gotten myself into, sure I pray and whatnot, but I never say "My religion made me do it." I would not use religion to justify or to not justify the death penalty.

Well in my experience many religious people do the opposite of yourself and not willing to hear arguments which they don't believe in and force their own opinion on to others. I'm quite willing to hear arguments which advocate opinions I'm not in agreement with but others are not like that.

I've come across religious sites tencommandments.org I believe which advocate the execution of homosexuals. Takes all sorts to make a world I guess.
