    Bad people do bad things and there are consequences...


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    Only two countries on the list are largely christian.

    And if you look at it in terms of % of inhabitants executed, Alabama comes in 8th and Mississippi 10th in 2010 stats.

    Texas, with 17 executions in 2010, would be tied with Syria at #8 on the "hit" parade.

    I look forward to the day when the Pro-life crowd is ALSO anti-capital punishment.

    And vociferously defends the taking of life at both ends of the spectrum.

    Of course, I also look forward to the day that people who are anti-capital punishment see the value of defending innocent human life at the beginning of the spectrum in addition to the generally evil human beings they are defending at the other end of the spectrum.

    In any event, your point is well-taken. People should consistently defend the sanctity of life in all its forms, and should abhor the taking of human life whenever it occurs. Which is why I am both pro-life on abortion and anti-capital punishment.

    Completely consistent position that I can support and respect.

    I think the nation could collectively arrive at a pretty good compromise that would put both issues to bed if not for politicians needing the wedge issues.

    That's so true of many issues in this country.

    Seems like that sentiment applies to a little bit more than just abortion and the death penalty.

    And by "a little bit", I mean every issue ever.

    yes just like that


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.
