("With God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26)
The Church defends the death penalty imposed for the punishment of grave crimes.
This is an error in Catholic doctrine. As my wife just pointed out: "That's the Muslim way".
The State is there, he says, to serve God for your benefit"
How's that working out?
Wrong has been done to society by a criminal. The State is divinely authorized to penalize the one who had been tried and found guilty of a serious crime.
How about if I sentence the state to death for commission of grave crimes (i.e. abortion).
