Alone scared mournful and hopeless people on death row feel raw pain as they wait for their sentences to be carried out No one no matter what the crime should suffer the agony of waiting to have their lives taken away Wheatear it be death by electric shock by lethal injection or by cyanide gas the death penalty is dead wrong Christianly wrong morally wrong statistically wrong and in many cases constitutionally wrong The eye for an eye theory has been applied by people who have misinterpreted it to their own advantage Let one without sin cast the first the first stone In the Old Testament murder sticking father or mother kidnapping cursing father or mother harming a pregnant woman knowingly owning a violent ox that kills someone sorcery bestiality working on the Sabbath adultery human sacrifice homosexuality blaspheming the name of the Lord false prophecy worshiping false Gods disobeying a priest disobeying a parent raping a betrothed woman and losing your virginity before marriage were all punishable by death How many of us would still be alive today if this was the method that we followed We live in modern time and should have modern punishments that fit those times Not barbaric and heathen punishments such as the death penalty The death penalty is the ultimate revenge and vengeance is mine saith the Lord How can we honestly communicate the message killing is wrong by killing someone Does the accused not have a family who will mourn their deaths How can society give justice to the family of the executed The answers are simple we cannot be a just society when we send hypocritical messages yes the executed has a family who will grieve and you can never give a family who has lost someone reconciliation not by a smile and a handshake not by an apology and not by killing someone else That person is gone forever why make the bitter cycle
