Jerry, I'm sorry, but you're way off base with that interpretation. Please don't tell me you're one of these Islamaphobes who are convinced that the U.S. is about to be taken over by Sharia Law. Seriously, while we still have the death penalty in this country, there's no legitimate criticism to be levied in that direction by us.
Steve As some states do have the death penalty.
But the US does not stone woman for adultery nor do we put anyone to death for blasphemy - there is a big difference
Do you always take everything so literally? You're a pilot, fer chrissake — take a look at the issue from 10,000 feet. As long as the U.S. has just one state with the death penalty, we are in no position to criticize any other culture that also kills people punitively. One method may be more barbaric than another. One judicial system may be comparatively out of whack. But dead is dead. And it's been proven time and time again that the death penalty does not reduce crime. It may do one's sense of vengence good, but not much more than that.
Stoning, pressing, hanging, firing squad... lethal injection. Dead is dead. <--- Capice?
