Death Penalty and the American Soul

From the “Christian Nation?” Department:

The death penalty has been abolished by 106 nations, 30 countries since 1990. Amnesty International reports that over 1/2 world’s nations have now abolished the death penalty in law or practice. The United States, China, the Congo and Iran are the most prolific executioners in the world.

I do not understand how the United States, especially given that so many of our fellow citizens continue to insist that this is a “Christian” country, can be so blind to this obvious moral, ethical, and spiritual hypocrisy.  Every execution diminishes our national soul.

UPDATE: Troy Davis’ last words, “For those about to take my life, may God have mercy on your souls, may God bless your souls.”

….and may God have mercy on us all.

    Almost all of the things you articulate happens to be supprisingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. Your piece really did turn the light on for me personally as far as this subject matter goes. But at this time there is actually one particular factor I am not really too comfy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your point, allow me see what all the rest of the readers have to point out.Very well done.
