Any Catholic who doesn't support the death penalty doesn't know that the Bible sanctions the death penalty. Another reason to support the death penalty is that it is a waste of the tax payers money to keep those convicted of first degree murder alive in prison. I wish the state that I reside in would bring back the death penalty and start using the electric chair. I could easily throw the switch on the chair. I would turn the juice up full blast and state fry murder fry.
Of course unchurched Americans are most resistant to evangelism because they are under the guidance of Satan to believe that life on this side of the grave is the only thing that matters and to believe the lie of Satan that there is no spiritual realm.
Good for that federal judge. At least one federal judge is not insane and not violating the United States Constitution which states that the federal government has no say in the laws that states enact.
The Romish church has always had close ties with criminals. Mother Teresa got much of her money from criminals. Catholics are the only ones to think that their sacraments has any efficacy. gangsters of course may say anything to get the last rites. Only God can determine their sincerity. Receiving them will not stop them from going to purgatory, which doesn't exist, that means they only have one other place to go, forever--hell Besides the close relationship of the Romish church and criminal organizations, the church itself may be declared a criminal organization. Roman Catholic Church Being Deconstructed â€“ Declared Criminal. It's about time! This explains why Satan's emissary want even more leniency for killers. Pope Francis blasts life sentences as â€˜hidden death penaltyâ€™ he wants his criminal priests and other minions out of jail as soon as possible.

How did Jesus view capital punishment? Jesus did not give specific instruction concerning it but his meeting with Pilate in John 19 is insightful. When Pilate told Jesus he had the power to release or crucify Him, Jesus said, " â€˜You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from aboveâ€™ " (John 19:11). He did not argue with Pilate about capital punishment or tell him it was wrong. In fact, Jesus recognized Pilateâ€™s power to carry out capital punishment but reminded Pilate that this authority came from God.
Paulâ€™s View on Capital Punishment
Nothings in Paulâ€™s life or letters suggest he did not agree with the right of the government to execute criminals. When he was under arrest and defending himself before Festus, the Roman governor of Judea, Paul said, "If then I am a wrongdoer, and have committed anything worthy of death, I do not refuse to die" (Acts 25:11). In this situation, Paul acknowledges the right of Festus to carry out capital punishment. No debate occurred whether the death penalty was right or not....

My grandparents were married in the backwoods of Kentucky during the great depression. They were part of a church group who had left their homes in California to start a school in Kentucky. When they decided to marry, they went and got a marriage license. However, after they had gotten it, they realized that they had a limited amount of time to get married and that their pastor - who was enroute to Kentucky - would not arrive before the license expired. My grandparents went to the justice of the peace and got married, but they did not live together as husband and wife until their pastor arrived and they were able to be married in a Christian ceremony. They never celebrated their marriage on the "legal" date, but on the day that the pastor married them.

We have scripture and Man's interpretation thereof. Likewise we have the Constitution and mans interpretation thereof. In other words, the constitution is a sound document but where we are having issues is it's being twisted to meet men's agendas!
Do you know if there is an accurate test? And, shouldn't a disease-causing ebola virus be isolated and proven to exist before trying to test for something not known to even exist? http://images.sa-media.com/images/smilies/confused.gif/bmi_orig_img/confused.gif
