Actually, the Church's official
position on the death penalty is consistent with most U.S. law.
Only in the most extreme circumstances, only when others cannot be protected in any other way. Which makes sense.
It is not an absolute opposition. Some clerics are completely opposed, but the Church is not.

I wasn't very clear, was I? It seems that the Church does, however, get a lot of publicity when they oppose an execution. I am a new Catholic, so I am not quite up to snuff on everything, yet.
