re Please sign Robinson's petition
- Dear all,
here are some quotes that would fit as comments on this and similar petitions:
"I will ask for the abolition of the death penalty until they show me human
judgement can't fail."
"How can a state which represents the whole of society and whose mission
consists in protecting society place itself on a level with a murderer?"
"To judge a nation, one has to take a look at its prisons from the inside."
The United States is the only Western democracy that still uses the death
penalty. It is one of only two nations in the world to execute juveniles -
Iran is the other. The US also has by far the highest murder rate in the
world. This proves again that the death penalty has no deterrent effect
whatsoever and that instead, the US needs to examine its cultural belief in
The death penalty is racist, economically biased, ineffective, expensive,
Let us find peaceful solutions to the problems of violence.
Love thy neighbor as thyself.
Hate is never conquered by hate. Hate is conquered by love.
Much too many innocents have died on death row, and even the culpable ones
have an unalieanable right to life.
Respect Human Life
What would Jesus do?
Thou shalt not kill.
Judge not lest ye be judged.
To kill a murderer adds another crime to the original one.
The death penalty is state-sanctioned murder, i.e. a fundamental violation
of human rights.
Judgment is mine, says the Lord.
...and mine, hehe
