Connecticut moves to abolish death penalty

After executing just one prisoner in more than 50 years, Connecticut moved Thursday to become the fifth state in five years to do away with the death penalty for good.

But the repeal wouldn't be a lifeline for the state's 11 death row inmates, including two men who killed a woman and two children in a horrifying home invasion supporters touted as a key reason to keep the law on the books. The state Senate debated for hours Thursday about whether the law would reverse those sentences before voting 20-16 to repeal the law. ...

John,
Yes, there is an evident biblical difference between murder and manslaughter. This (and only this) legal distinction is made in Wales. But, that was not my question:
Where is first degree homicide distinguished from second or other degrees of homicide in the Bible?
Is this the sort of thing you have in mind, the effective murder of the unborn child in the womb?

Exodus 21:22
22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.

However, the commandment, "Thou shalt not kill" and its meaning. The depths of this and every commandment, is explained clearly by the Lord, and his judgments are definitely measured.

Matthew 5:21-22
21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

But you hold that the death penalty is ordained by God.
But non-premeditated murders are not deserving of the death penalty?
Show me that from the Bible.

John UK wrote:
If you read through "The Laws" in the OT, you will discover that the current laws on death are very much based on God's laws, and are dependent on how the person was killed. Manslaughter for example, is a lesser charge than first degree homicide. And then there are "Cities of Refuge" for certain situations.
John,

Correct, see Exodus 21:12-14. Interestingly, pagan Hawaii had one too:

My theory is, the Biblical ones were a provision to prevent further evil like lynching or feuding.

It is not in the Bible distinguishing first degree homicide from second or degrees of homicide. But ever since executions have taken place in the United States it has only been for first degree homicide that execution has been ordered.

Why, John Y., Such a Christian attitude about the death penalty.
Gil RughAUTHOR]Jesus’ View on Capital Punishment--

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, " ‘You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above’ " (John 19:11). He did not argue with Pilate about capital punishment or tell him it was wrong. In fact, Jesus recognized Pilate’s power to carry out capital punishment but reminded Pilate that this authority came from God.

excerpt from, Rendering To Caesar---A Biblical Perspective On Government.

However, John, this is how the church you are a member of thinks of the death penalty.

Catholic Free Press wrote:
“The Catholic conference of Connecticut is thrilled with the passage of the repeal of the death penalty,” executive director Michael C. Culhane told Catholic News Service hours after passage.

This is just the latest example of Satan influencing another state legislature to go against the teaching of the Bible. The death penalty is ordained of God. And it is a waste of the tax payers money to keep individuals convicted of first degree homicide alive in prison. And they should just use the electric chair for executions. I could easily throw the switch on the chair. I would turn the juice up full blast and laugh and state fry dirty rotten, animalistic, insane murderer. First degree homicide is the only type of murder where the death penalty should be enacted. Why should the death penalty be enacted for second degree homicide or involuntary manslaugter?
