Pontiff Lauds Efforts to End Death Penalty: Notes Human Dignity of Prisoners

Despite the horrific things some of the people who have been given death sentences have done, I remain pro-life, and to me that means these people too. I certainly don't have the right to take their lives from them, nor should a government or anyone else...

Here is the only man God picked to return right before Christ does...killing 450 prophets of Baal:

1Ki 18:40  And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

Within the Christian times, God sent an angel to execute Herod in Acts 12 and with Peter, God executed Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 12. Romans 13:4 says that states execute God's wrath with the sword. You are neglecting scripture too much and following two Popes who did next to nothing to protect boys under their care. Catholicism's real core is not about Popes....it's about Christ and His revelation in Scripture.

Acts 5 is Ananias not Acts 12.
