It is neither justice nor is it right because murder and rape are never just nor right. They are evil acts.
As a Christian, I believe in redemption, restoration, justice. I can't help believe that, even if I weren't a Christian, I would see the deep hole that retributive "justice" leads us down.
Ergo, I'm against the death penalty, against war, against using violence as any sort of means to an end.
I cannot, in good conscience, not speak my mind about such issues.
But I also know and understand how we'd all like to see some sort of payback for the horrible crap that Sandusky, for instance, put his victims through. So... enjoy.
