Does This Mean Death for the Death Penalty?

Pope Francis’ ruling that the death penalty is inadmissible in all circumstances has raised the temperature on this debate in the Catholic Church.

I’ve written on the subject over at my main blog here and on the hierarchy of truth in the Catholic Church here.

My own views? I think it is a good decision from a moral point of view, but am concerned about the philosophical foundations of the decision, and have explained this in my two blog posts.
