Oklahoma Pharmacy Won’t Provide Drugs for Execution

Good for them. The job of medicine is to heal, not kill. Part of the perversion of our culture of death is that we lie to ourselves by surrounding killing with a neat, clean aesthetic. To do that, we take the one profession whose job is to save lives and order it to do our butchery for us. If we are so hell-bent on making people dead in order to keep up with advanced civilizations like North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Red China, and Iran, we should have the courage to take up stones and do it in the public square, spattered with the blood of our victims. It is, after all, about vengeance. So we should do the dirty deed ourselves if we think it’s so vital. Like Jesus did with the adulterous woman.

Meanwhile, this pharmacy did the right thing. The still righter thing would be to abolish the death penalty.
