after reflection It is true that IN OLD TESTAMENT times, God did. Christ fulfilled all the old Law, so people will be dealt with in the day of judgement. Having said that, separation of Church and state decrees that religion shall not be used in the issuance of government business. Basically it is not considered legal to use religious doctrine for the purpose of Judicial actions, if you need proof take the most recent unpleasantness with the supreme court, they certainly though Religion out the door with that one, didn't they?

Actually God clearly supported Death penalty. As do I. It IS NOT that the death penalty is wrong, rather it is corrupted. The ONLY people who should ever BE allowed to be charged WITH the death penalty is in the cases where there is Clear, physical, scientific (DNA) and other scientific data, available where the preponderance of Scientific evidence is all but irrefutable. Eyewitness testimony should not be enough for invoking of death penalty as peoples perceptions certainly can be flawed. Also, executions should be completed within 1 year of sentencing, NOT 10, 15, 30 years later. I also think pedophiles, rapist and Life offenders should be in this category, but I don't have any biblical sources for that stand, I just think housing, feeding, guarding people for the remainder of their lives is counter-productive, clearly tHAVE shown they are a threat to society .... haven't they?
