You take a life...you pay with your own. Only God can take a life...and only He has the power to do so.

I think what you meant to say that only God has the RIGHT to take a life....most of us have the POWER to do so.....

I believe in the death penalty, when the crime is deliberate and premeditated, a hate crime because of race, religion, etc.

The death penalty must stay. Too many bleeding heart liberals out there. The criminal must be made to pay for taking a life.

Some say only GOD has the right to kill or take a life . And some say KILL them all .
Once you kill someone , their punishment is over and they suffer no more .

How many did Jesus kill in God's name ?

There is no deterrent to a crime of passion.

If there is such thing as an "eye for an eye" with God being the ultimate judge, how many of you "believers," in both God and the death penalty, will be subjected to that very same judgement for your lack of compassion ?

How can you have compassion for a person who goes out and kills another person? I am talking about a person who deliberately commits a crime. People need to stand up and say that Enough is Enough. I am for keeping the death penalty.

Nothing about what you or I think or who we should pick or choose.
That is up to him .

I'm against the death penalty but it has nothing to do with the people on death row. When they committed a capital crime they knew what the penalty was. I'm against it because as a society we need to raise ourselves above the level of the people that commit the crime, not lower ourselves to their level.

If you take a life you should be locked in a cell 24/7 365 for the rest of your life. The only thing in that cell should be a tv with one channel showing a loop of every photo ever taken of their victim. Give them something to think about.

if a person is convicted of a crime, beyond any doubt, they should be executed within 30 days, not 30 years (see danny lee hill).
