That "Old Time Religion" as public policy sure is cruel, ain't it. Electrocution, Firing Squad, Hanging, Drug Overdose, Decapitation. "Thou shalt not kill." "Judge not, lest thee be judged."

Well said Mark,

All murder is wrong, any state execution as much as any other.

May we all learn and heal the world

love and blessings
