Why Don Opposes Capital Rape

I disagree that castration would not deter raping again. The loss of testosterone greatly reduces aggressiveness. I certainly see less aggression in castrated animals. Also it is tragic that while the rapist is in prison the victim's tax dollars are supporting him.

Good point. Castration for those convicted of "second degree" rape, then.
However one defines "second degree", and assuming there are degrees of rape lesser still.

Don is angry with me. He cannot understand why I support punishing rapists with death while simultaneously defending the rights of the unborn. He accuses me of applying double standards, promoting hypocrisy, and of being "inconsistent." But I am perfectly consistent in my beliefs. And, truth be known, so is Don.

The reason so many people are unfairly labeled as "inconsistent" is because the term "double standard" is applied in such a haphazard fashion. People are actually guilty of applying a double standard when they treat two identical things differently. On the other hand, they are not applying a double standard...
