Capital Punishment And Religion Essay Research Paper

Capital Punishment And Religion Essay, Research Paper

Capital Punishment Electrocution . . . gas chamber . . . lethal injection . . .

field shooting . . . all are forms of the death penalty used across the United

States. Some believe that when one person takes the life of another, that

person?s life should be taken as well. They should pay for what they did. But

honestly . . . is capital punishment used to make the murderer pay for what he

did? Or is it simply revenge? Capital punishment is wrong. In my opinion, it is

barbaric. It is revenge, and it teaches revenge as well. Do two wrongs make a

right? Do two murders instead of one make everything okay? We need to

distinguish the difference between our emotions and what is right. I will

admit?if someone killed someone I loved, I would probably want that person to

die. But I would be irrationally thinking, too blinded by grief and emotion to

tell the difference between right and wrong. The death penalty gives criminals a

way out. If the punishment for murder was life imprisonment, I would think that

most criminals would rather die than face the rest of their lives in jail. I

think all murderers should sit and rot in jail where they can think about what

they?ve done, and know that Hell is in their future. I think God will find his

avenge, and who are we to decide when a person should die whether guilty or

innocent? That?s not our decision. Plus, exactly how long does a prisoner wait

on death row? Moning 2 Some people wait more than 20 years! Some experts say

Congress would have eliminated the death penalty long ago, had there been more

cases. As it is, they feel that going through the entire ?law-removal?

process would be a waste of time. Capital punishment conflicts with the 8th

amendment: ?No cruel and unusual punishment.? It is cruel to murder! Whether

it is a punishment or not, it is cruel! It also clearly clashes with the 5th

commandment in the bible, ?Thou shalt not kill.? It does not say, ?Thou

shalt not kill unless you are given permission? . . . ?unless you?re

getting revenge,? etc. There is always that nagging little fact that we may

never be sure whether or not a ?criminal? is guilty. In over one hundred

cases it was found that the ?murderer was innocent, after their punishment was

taken out! The death penalty is a very controversial issue, one which nearly

everyone has an opinion. The one question everyone needs to answer for

themselves is ?Is it revenge? or is it a punishment?? There is a thin line

between one?s emotions and what?s right. Maybe there is no correct answer to

whether the death penalty is justice or murder, but it continues to be an issue

that is widely disputed.
