Torah/Bible/An Eye for an Eye
Why would God have Moses write such a thing?
Could it have been the time it was written in
to the people it was written too?

Kill the Killer
Make the Killer think about the Dastardly Deed?
Why would a God have Moses
write these three statements?
Then we have
Hebrew(Jew), Christians and non believers,
what does your
'Killing' one another
why would your god write such a thing?
I would like to thank the author of your 'Good Book'
(God the Creator of All).
what or should I say
who is this
'Word of God'?
"But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life,
eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, (25) burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.…
The rest will hear and be afraid, and will never again do such an evil thing among you. 21"Thus you shall not show pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
'If a man injures his neighbor, just as he has done, so it shall be done to him:
fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; just as he has injured a man, so it shall be inflicted on him.
'Thus the one who kills an animal shall make it good, but the one who kills a man shall be put to death.…
But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Yes, allah is the god of love
A letter to the editor of the Journal
"The death penalty is not a case of justice but vengeance.”
Abolish cruel punishment
I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when reading your March 22 editorial, “State attorney abused her power,” on the decision of State Attorney Aramis Ayala not to pursue the death penalty in capital cases. The statement “the state has been among the leaders in executing prisoners on death row” is disgusting (Visit Florida — the leader in executing prisoners!) Seriously? I have been at a prayer vigil against the death penalty in Starke for every execution since 2009; we pray for victims of violence and for the accused. I have tried to look at the death penalty from every angle; I have met with parents of a murdered child who oppose the death penalty. I cannot find a reason for its continuance. Every industrialized democracy has abolished the death penalty except the United States. We are among the top five countries in the world in executions, with China, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Iraq.

What I have learned is that preventing killing people by killing people makes no sense. The examples you present don't override the fact that here in Florida 26 men have been exonerated off death row vs. the 92 who have been executed. Many times it takes decades to carry out an execution. So people argue for ways to accelerate the killing process, which in Florida would gave resulted in the deaths of legally innocent men. Plus the cost of over $50 million yearly to pursue the death penalty for the accused.
