Is any mass murder sane? Is any criminal sane? Does doing something that will inevitably lead to a miserable punishment while not accomplishing any goals towards one's objective count as insanity? Is neo-fascism inherently bent towards insanity?

I think Breivik is not biologically insane, as in schizophrenic. But I do believe his hatred for immigrants and Muslims made him lose all rational and thus his sanity.

Your question, digitize, does make me wonder how we should truly define sanity. I would say Breivik certainly lost his empathy for others as he lost rationale. Does being empathetic equal sanity? If so, we all suffer from insanity to some degree and at one point.

Did anyone read the GQ article, I think it was in last month's issue, with the eyewitness accounts from the survivors? I started it but I couldn't finish it, it was just too much for me to handle.

That's basically the broad question I was thinking about too.

Final? Yes.

Just and moral? I find this to be an absolutely abhorrent view, one that would be almost impossible to justify using the Christian faith or logic and reasoning. Revenge is the only thing driving such a view.

Amazing how they're hardliners when it comes to homosexuality and marriage, but never follow Jesus when it comes to this

But nobody innocent has ever, ever been executed by the state so the death penalty is just and moral.

I think the bible is more than clear about killing in warfare, killing in self-defense or killing via capital punishment versus murder.

What verses do you have on capital punishment? Well besides the those where an innocent Jesus died by the system...
