Misplaced Mercy In Arizona Execution Drama

“When justice is delayed, it is denied, and that is the only tragedy worth discussing.” The fact is that we don’t sentence people to painful deaths because; Bill of Rights. Failure to abide by the Constitution IS worth discussing and IS a tragedy when we can’t guarantee that something as serious as death-by-State will be conducted in accordance with our most basic laws. Regarding these drugs: let’s pay more. Paying ten times the amount for a dose of the guaranteed stuff would save money in the long run. Also, why not buy local? Assuming these drugs aren’t so much secret as patented, pay the money to manufacture them at home. McCain, who I would have thought knew a thing or two about torture, is wrong about Wood. Torture requires intent. But if we’re really worried about that, why isn’t there an armed officer of the law standing by to finish these guys off when things go wrong?
1) no one has been defamed. If you actually feel someone has, by all means make an actual court case over it. 2) There isn't a KKK Bible. They didn't feel the need to rewrite it, just the need to not follow it in whole. 3) 'The Bible has either been perverted to abuse all kinds of people throughout the centuries' or it hasn't. du2's religion or lack or religion has no bearing on the accuracy of his statement.

Nice.
That's kind of where I am with this. I don't think he has a case. That doesn't mean the owners aren't gutless.

Gays can already write up contracts for mutual support. What they WANT is the extra rights and privileges that marriages confer through the build-up of court decisions and tradition. They also want 'legitimacy'. But an ill-gotten title produces legitimacy like ill-gotten money produces class.

I hope you're wrong about that one. I'd like to think that most judges would throw that one out; it's not only a religious institution, it's an actual church with a literal sanctity. Moreover I'd like to believe that when the gays finally manage to shop a hateful judge that the big churches will kick in. Hell, the Vatican can kick in.

SWAT gear is not the uniform of policemen; it is the uniform of the terrorist, of the executioner, of the lynch mob. There are occasions when government has no choice but to use grenades and fully automatic weapons against citizens who are engaged in heinous crimes that could result in innocents being killed, or are obviously armed and planning to shoot. Absent these situations police should not dress up as ninjas and break down people's doors.

I can't agree that gay marriage - in and of itself - harms Christians. Sins becoming legal is nothing new. Christians know not to sin. Nor does gay marriage harm original marriage. Keeping a vow is an internal, not external matter. When Christians are compelled by law to aid gay marriage...that is an entirely other matter. Such laws are bigoted and unConstitutional. That gays cheer when this happens is especially despicable. They know what it's like to be on the outside and their eagerness to see it happen to Christians is moral bankruptcy, As far as the courts ruling that gays may marry gays...that's a foul. We have legislatures for making and changing laws.
