The U.S. Supreme Court is ruling on whether lethal injection is cruel and unusual punishment.
What about killing someone?
Isn’t that cruel and unusual punishment?
The Old Testament guides today's morals more than the New Testament.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche said,
"The last Christian died on the cross."
Perhaps he was right.

“Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal’s deed, however calculated can be compared. For there to be an equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.”
Albert Camus
