None of the quotes you posted say anything about the death penalty. Every single one of them is about personal behavior and has nothing to do with the government. You've got to read verses in context.

If you think that these verses do apply to the way the government handles criminials, then what you are saying is that

(1)Criminals can't be judged by the government, because everyone sins

and

(2)The government must forgive criminals (and of course if they forgive them, they must set them free)

No, Christ never spoke about the death penalty. His Father however, did speak about it and even commanded it.

As for me, I am against the death penalty, but only because innocent people have been and will be executed. However, for Saddam, I'll make an exception - there is no chance he is innocent.

My mother told me she saw the execution on the news (I never watch TV). I definitely do not think it should have been shown in public. What have we become, that we think public execution is entertainment? Even if you support capital punishment, don't you think there's something sick about enjoying watching a death?
This was actually aired!!! I really don't get it.

I think they only aired up to the part when they were fixing the noose around the neck.

Oh, really? Too few of them to make things change...

What a nice NY present for the whole free world!
Please tell me you're joking. He was never the main threat. There's this little group called Al-Quaida out there, and last I checked, Osama bin Laden was still alive.

Sheesh.

so stalin was right.

when 1 man dies it's a tragedy, when a million die, it's a statistic.

Once upon a time, it was a long time ago

I posted a photo of George W. Bush

It was a collage made with photos of dead American soldiers

My thread was immediately closed


But that one! People! That one is sooo fresh! Sooo witty! It is sooo nice to be able to discuss calmy without any irony. That's wonderful. I love you all.

I'm against the death penalty, but I'm not exactly shedding tears for Saddam. I certainly don't feel like dancing on his grave, either. I hope I never reach the point where I rejoice at the death of another human being, however evil they may be.

I watched the news this morning and a tape showing Saddam was shown, it was him having material tied around his neck and then the noose. The people speaking to him were masked, and then it cut to him in a body bag, to prove that he actually was dead.... Maybe this is just me, but just ending a person's life is such an unnatural thing and I don't think his death should have been under such circumstances.

I am not in any way saying that he deserved better, because he truely was an evil man... I don't know what I'm trying to say, maybe it would have been better to let him live out the rest of his life in prison

The whole thing just made me feel a bit

Maybe we should start posting pictures and videos of all the terrors Saddam caused and see how people feel. Saddam was pure evil and he deserved to pay the absolute highest price for his crimes. I pray that I never live in a country where the murderer and torturer of millions of innocent lives is treated just as lightly as the murderer of one.
