I've never understood why the death penalty is right but killing is wrong. Aren't they both killing? How is murdering to revenge murder supposed to be a good thing? I hate the idea of my money (from taxes) being used to pay for a murderer's life sentence in prison, but I still prefer that idea to killing him.

If he had murdered someone you love, would you still feel the same?

Even if he had murdered a person one loves.... we blame him for murdering and do exactly the same thing on him... an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.... I thought, we would know better for 2000 years.

Even though he killed someone who I love, I can not kill him myself. In my point of view, killing a human is not a human's job. According to the holy bible, human can not take other's lives.

Well put.

I'm not a Christian myself but in this instance I agree with it. "Thou Shalt not kill", right? It's unfortunate that U.S. President Bush, who claims to be a Christian, doesn't agree. He is the former govenor of Texas where there are more executions than any other state.

government and laws are indeed beastial. I thought as humans we have "humanity", setting us apart frommals. At the least I've always found capital punishment barbaric.
