Not surprised that 10% of pole voters are Christians. They don't "sit in Moses' seat" ("An eye for an eye"). They "sit with Him (Jesus) in heavenly places".It is the "narrow road". They'll always be looked upon with disdain by the minds of the worldly.

God SAID "Thou shalt not kill"...Jesse did indeed kill someone so he sould pay the price. I take no joy in voting for the death penalty...and I'm sure no jury will either but he deserves it.

God would forgive Jesse if he confessed and asked for forgiveness (from God) but will he? Will he turn to Jesus Christ?...will he reform himself and others and seek God's love and forgiveness?

Sadly, I don't think so...He wasn't raised by Christian parents and probably never saw the inside of a church. The Evil One is jumping for joy over Jesse Mathews, his parents and sister.

He will die in prison from old age or the needle. May he NEVER breathe freedom again.
