Re: “Search begins for lethal drugs to resume executions

I am an evangelical and a former minister. What has always troubled me is the selective interpretation of many Christians who want to be selectively "Pro-Life." Obviously I am aware of the Levitical mandate "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." (Ex 21.24) It was Jesus who said a new command I offer you..."turn the other cheek.." Jesus taught a life of mercy and forgiveness not retribution...

Jesus also taught that all human life was sacred. We extend sanctity of life to the unborn yet after gestation is completed the respect and dignity for human life ends. Be pro-life but be consistently pro-life from the womb to the tomb.

Not to mention that fiscal reports and studies reveal that the death penalty does not deter crime, is not fiscally responsible, and by no means is racially biased. Dear Christian there are so many holes in your gospel. I am dumbfounded by the attempts by those in the Christian camp's attempt to politicize morality when it is only convenient. It is selective interpretation and dreadfully inconsistent!
