State Senator Lynn Hutchings defense of the death penalty:
The greatest man who ever lived died via the death penalty for you and me. I’m grateful to him for our future hope because of this. Governments were instituted to execute justice. If it wasn’t for Jesus dying via the death penalty, we would all have no hope.
Yes. And Jews were involved, on a corner, in the execution of Christ, and because of that, Christianity has always been afflicted by raging antisemitism that culminated (we hope) in the terror regime of Nazi Germany.
So, if American executions would happen to produce a future religion, that religion would then treat Americans like Nazis treated Jews?
I have a proposal:
Fucking stop it! Now!
