If you are against the death penalty does that mean you condone murder?
I was recently asked that question and it seemed totally absurd to me.
How could it mean that?
I am against the death penalty for one reason only.
I am against the death penalty because there are to many ways it can be wrong. To many way for it to go wrong. To many ways to regret it later.
I am not against punishment for the guilty.
If you are a proponent of the death penalty - aren't you condoning murder?
