The Power of Life and Death? No Thanks
In a post titled "Human Fallibility," that great blogger Kevin Drum on the Washington Monthly website links to this article to explain his opposition to the death penalty. Exactly . . . human fallibility: humility; readiness to repent; willingness to confess error; recognition of our flawed and sinful nature. Doesn't all that sound familiar? It sounds like a Christian perspective to me--or a much better approximation of one than the cocksure demands for judgment and vengeance that pass for Christianity in certain quarters.
