Back in May, legislators in Nebraska did something incredible: they voted to repeal the death penalty in the state. (They had just enough votes to override Governor Pete Ricketts‘ veto.)

I’m going to skip over the facts of the case and focus on how it was argued. Cox defended his push for the death penalty by quoting the Bible in court, as if we’re guided by the Christian holy book in this country instead of the Constitution:
