[Thread] Wrong, @FrMatthewLC. Your argument is based on the false premise that the primary purpose of the #DeathPenalty is the protection of society from dangerous criminals. That is secondary. The primary purpose is to punish the guilty as an act of retributive justice.
God Himself makes this principle of retributive justice quite clear in Genesis, something He *requires* (not suggests) for upholding the dignity of man: "Whosoever shall shed man's blood, his blood shall be shed: for man was made to the image of God." (Gen. 9:6)
No amount of sophistry can deny the immutable legitimacy of #CapitalPunishment. Scripture and Tradition are clear. Aquinas is clear. The Roman Catechism is clear. *No one*, including @Pontifex, can validly claim that a precept of divine and natural law is now "inadmissible".

Seems common sense to say 'People in #prison are criminals.' Actually, 'People in prison are people.' Shift from 'criminal' to 'person' could begin to undo wreckage & #racism of mass incarceration AND increase public safety.

"Prison itself may exacerbate recidivism" says DOJ.
Thinking of people in prison as criminals turns ACTS into IDENTITY. My classmate #BryanStevenson says we're all more than the worst thing we've done. DOJ research shows even those who commit crime at highest rates naturally age out of criminal behavior beginning at 35. #JustMercy
We should hold people accountable. But long prison sentences make us LESS safe, acc'g to peer-reviewed research, which is the gold standard for life/death decisions in medical care. Why not so in life/death decisions about public safety & incarceration?

தூக்கு தண்டணைக்கு எதிரானது தான் என் நிலைப்பாடு காரணம் நம்ம நி(நீ)திதுறை நடைமுறை.....

நிர்பயா பாலியல் வன்கொடுமை வழக்கு தீர்ப்பை படிக்கும் பொழுது Say No to #CapitalPunishment என்பது பற்றி இன்னும் ஒரு முறை சிந்தித்து பார்க்கவேண்டுமோ என தான் நினைக்க சொல்கிறது!அவ்வளவு கொடூரம்!
அவளின் பிறப்பு உருப்பின் உள்ளே Iron நுழைத்தது.
அவளை கட்டாயப்படுத்தி Oral Sex செய்ய துடித்தது,உடலில் காயத்தை உண்டாக்கியது என சொல்லிக்கொண்டே போகலாம்!
நீதிபதியே பல இடங்களில் இந்த வழக்குக்கு தூக்கு தண்டணை கொடுக்கவில்லை எனில் எந்த வழக்குக்கு கொடுக்க போகிறோம் என கேட்டு உள்ளனர்!
ஒரு முறைக்கூட அவளை பெண்ணாக வேண்டாம் ஒரு உயிராக நினைத்து இருக்கலாம்!

அந்த கடும் குளிரில் ஒட்டு துணி இல்லாமல் தூக்கி வீசிவிட்டு போன உடம்பில் ஓடுவது ரத்தமா இல்லை சாக்கடையா?

Almost a year before the Pope's announced revision of para. 2267 of the Catechism, @EWTN's @worldoverdc featured Profs. Edward #Feser & Joseph #Bessette discussing their book, By Man Shall His Blood Be Shed: A #Catholic Defense of #CapitalPunishment.

At about 9:08 (see above) @RaymondArroyo reads a letter about the death penalty, euthanasia, & abortion, and a discussion begins re guilt & innocence, prudential judgment, & teaching that must be adhered to. #DeathPenalty #Catholic
At about 11:46 (see OP) discussion begins about the Scriptural roots of the #Catholic teaching on #CapitalPunishment. #DeathPenalty
