A thought on the Death Penalty

Sr. Prejean is most famous for her book made into a movie, “Dead Man Walking.”  This video here is when she gave a sermon at Holy Family Church, Pasadena, CA October 7, 2012.

The video is about 20 minutes, and in summary she points out:

  • If Catholics are pro-life, can they really decide not to stand up against the death penalty?
  • Does not the death penalty make violence a solution, therefore validating it?
  • All churches need to do much more for victims of violence, and not only promote an elimination of the death penalty.  Otherwise, it would be missing the point!

Proposition 34 is worth your vote if you do believe in redemption and forgiveness.
