ipomea's comment history

I do not understand the desperation...to continue legal killing. Aren't the victims of heinous crimes enough killing to satisfy the morbid reach of even the most hatefull person? State execution is pure vengeance(hate), not justice. And vengeance is not what religious/Christian ethics espouse. Christian derives from Jesus the Christ, and Jesus taught forgiveness and more forgiveness. The perpetrators of horrible crimes, should be locked up, and forced to work for pay which would then be sent to the victims' family ad infinitum. And for those who use the Old Testament when it is convenient, there is no asterisk beside "Thou shalt not kill."
