Benedict on Capital Punishment

Benedict on Capital Punishment December 1, 2011

Read the whole (very brief) address or watch the (very long) video.

I express my hope that your deliberations will encourage the political and legislative initiatives being promoted in a growing number of countries to eliminate the death penalty and to continue the substantive progress made in conforming penal law both to the human dignity of prisoners and the effective maintenance of public order.

(Hat-tip to K. Estrada, president of Franciscan University of Steubenville’s “Students for a Fair Society”)
