Of course, you can always count on World Nut Daily to explain the illogic of celebrating a victim of capital punishment while supporting its practice:
The reason capital punishment was necessary, God explained, was because human life was so special. There had to be a blood atonement for the death of an innocent man or woman.
There’s a much longer and detailed explanation of the absolute requirement for the death penalty in God’s economy in Numbers 35. That’s where we learn that the land is actually polluted by the unatoned shedding of innocent human blood. There’s more in Deuteronomy 19. Some of today’s queasy Christians might also be surprised to learn how many other sins required the death penalty under their God’s laws.
I would suggest to you the big “take-away” from any biblical study of the death penalty would suggest that it is the very basis of God’s rules for governance on Earth. It’s the very foundation. Take it away and you take away the very underpinning of a Judeo-Christian civilization.
Is that all it will take? I guess we know where to get started then.
