    The punishment should fit the crime!

    “Capital punishment was established by God in the bible and is endorsed for certain crimes.”

    So is taking your unruly children into the town to have them stoned to death. Sometimes biblical literacy creates more quandaries than it solves.

    Death is not a punishment….it’s a freedom from suffering. “Life” should mean life , with hard labour to earn your keep make compensation to your victims.

    Nope. Another fake Christian fallacy.

    “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment. But I tell you that anyone who hates his brother will be subject to judgment.” Matthew 5:21-22

    Did Clayton Lockett read that particular commandment?

    I think the point is that we as a society should strive to be at least morally better than the criminals we are executing.No, we shouldn’t be liberal hippies and let murderers go free like some right wing wackos are suggesting.

    That doesn’t mean we should go around and explode people’s veins in the name of ‘justice’.

    I like the interpretation from that nice, peaceful bible that if your kid doesn’t turn down the TV on command, you turn him over to the mob in the street to stone him to death.

    This is a Commandment that has been interpreted incorrectedly from Day One. “Kill” actually translates as “Murder”—which gives a completely different meaning to this Commandment, Mr. Bennett.

    This strip contributes to the common misunderstanding that the Bible prohibits the execution of certain criminals. The Hebrew language has different verbs for the ending of life, and the better (noncontradictory) translation for the commandment is: Thou shalt not murder.

    No no no… thou shalt not MURDER. If you actually read the Bible (both OT and NT), there is nothing ever said condemning the act of killing. MURDER is always bad but there is a time and place for killing.
