I do not think that it is right. If someone is in your house, but does not try to physically harm you in any way, it should count as murder

I will concede that if there is no physically hostile intentions that there is no god-given right to crack the thief's head open. If they show hostile intentions (which is typically the case) there is the right of self defense when a person attacks them. I believe however that you can discourage the person from returning by beating them up slightly (Oh, Officer. It's just his face. He doesn't need it.).

It's the sentiment that counts.

The saying is "an eye for an eye", but what about "an eye for a mere stab wound"?

A person broke into your home with full intentions of stealing your personal possessions. Pretty sure you have the right to kill him.
