Liberal Logic

At least one liberal “gets it”:

I have never understood the standard Democratic combo of support for abortion and yet opposition to the death penalty. Surely it is the guilty rather than the innocent who deserve execution? Camille Paglia

Hat tip: The humble Amy Scott.

Just to be clear, the Scriptures oppose abortion and support the death penalty. The death penalty is one of three governmental punishments the Scriptures actually advocate — the other two being corporal punishment and restitution — and it is emphasized that the government’s authority to punish the wicked is divinely ordained.

The Scriptures also teach that when punishment is slow to come (if it comes at all), the wicked will just continue to wax worse. Is a lifetime in jail getting free room and board really a punishment for heinous sins?
