Capital Punishment and Social Sin

Today's thought: who serves a role in the execution of a prisoner?

You, I, and everyone else that votes or has a voice: The law is made by people whom we elect. If we elect people that think it is okay to execute prisoners, then we are in effect making it possible for them to be executed.

It's like everything else - if there is a social problem and the resources exist to fix it (the government, in the case of criminal justice), but nothing is being done.... that is a social sin that rests upon the souls of every eligible voter.

Needless to say, we all need to vote and, more importantly, get other people to realize just how much voting means.

I agree we all need to vote. The sad fact is that many who are voting are voting for those who will execute. Execution is not seen as a sin, but as a deterrent to crime. Until a voter holds ALL human life as sacred they will continue to vote for politicians who want to lower crime rates by executing criminals.
