    I think it says somewhere,“Thou Shalt NOT Kill”.

    I wonder who said that?

    For me it was when Bush mocked a death row inmate when a reporter asked him what she said to him.

    There are several points here, both civil and religious. A) our constitution forbids cruel and unusual punishment. What is supposed to set us apart from the criminals is that we do NOT stoop to their level, and that includes how (or if, since often mistakes are made) we execute the condemned. To say “They did terrible things, so we should do equally terrible things to them” is to make yourself like them. B) please use scripture in context. The eye for an eye bit was taken from the Code of Hammurabi and was designed to MODERATE revenge since prior revenge often included killing the entire family. But also note – at least the Christians here – that Jesus said: “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.”

    America applies the death penalty to black people more than to white people, for identical crimes. (Florida has NEVER executed a white person for murdering a black person, for instance.) And recent studies estimate that about 4% of people are wrongly convicted. We should not be killing people if we cannot be sure we always apply the law equally, and if we cannot be sure that we always get it right. And getting it right is just too expensive.

    Have I chewed on it when I say: I do not quite understand the drift of your post? Would that mean (as some would say on here) that we should then just execute all of those prisoners, after all, it would save a whole lot of money for our always complaining ultra conservative taxpayers. I have seen numerous posts where the quote would be, “Bullets are far cheaper!” Would that then make us (the US which claims to be) a truly Christian nation that follows the teachings of Jesus?

    Our interpretation of the commandment; translated properly, the word is ‘murder’,not ‘kill’.

    ^and folks actually READING what others ACTUALLY SAY, and UNDERSTANDING what they said could also improve some folks’ critics of others?
