Today's Good Read

America, Religious Values and the Death Penalty; Or, If it Was Good Enough for Jesus and Socrates...

The United States is still using the logic of vengeance in enforcing the death penalty, and it is the only Western country within its primary coalitions to do so. When did it start? How can it end? What is wrong with us?

We share the death penalty with such notable countries as Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, North Korea, and Myanmar. Isn't that nice? The US is the only western country in NAFTA and NATO that employs the death penalty.
