Bravo to Dave Armstrong!

Bravo to Dave Armstrong! December 9, 2017

…for coming completely on board with the Church’s position on the death penalty. He now completely rejects it:

My position for as long as I can remember has been against the death penalty, except in the case of mass murderers and terrorists. I was more generally in favor of it in the past (not sure how long ago that was). Thus, in more recent years I have been basically opposed to it, with only relatively rare and extraordinary exceptions to the “rule.”

As a result of wonderful group discussion with Dr. Robert Fastiggi (professor of systematic theology at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit), at my house last night, I have now changed my opinion to being totally against capital punishment.

God bless Dr. Robert Fastiggi!

Well done, Dave Armstrong!
