The Heathens are More Christian
I happened across several entries on this, and all happened to be in favour of him dying (and all happened to be from Americans). One guy, on the day leading up to the execution, said "the families of his victims will get closure tonight." What closure? And who is this blog-ninny-yahoo to know what the families of may-or-may-not-be his victims anyway will get tonight, or what they'll feel or what it's like to be them.
It never ceases to amaze me how quickly people put judgement on other people in vulnerable situations. Death Row is a vulnerable situation. The family of a murder victim is in a vulnerable situation. How quickly we the people of priviledge pass judgement. Particularly, and strangely I find, people who call themselves Christians.
But Christians they ain't, in fact Jesus would be ashamed of the association. What would Jesus do? Most likely he'd bust that dude's ass outta jail, take him to a whorehouse (but just for dinner), and write a letter to Arnie telling him he can get to heaven when he gives all his ill-gotten millions to Hurricane Carter.
