Did you know that 95 nations in the world have banned the death penalty.
Not the United States. We seem to love to kill people.
Russia banned the practice of capital punishment on November 19, 2006.
Russia! The U.S.'s old arch enemy. The country of Stalin and gulags.
What's wrong with us, Americans? The most religious country, supposedly, on earth as compared to the atheistic, godless communists? Probably its the belief in the God of the Old Testament who loves killing people. Does it at the drop of a hat. Hey, if it's good enough for God, by golly it's good enough for us.
Unitarian Universalists do not support the death penalty, but we are a small minority in the United States.
Come on people, let's join the civilized world.
