Joint Editorial on the Death Penalty
I'm glad to see I'm not alone in insisting that something important is lost if the death penalty is not, at least in principle, a possibility. There doesn't seem to be much more that needs to be said in addition to what I have already said and what is in those two links. On the other hand, I feel very disappointed in the National Catholic Register, which has, at least in some of its blogs and columns, been rightly critical in the past of what is called "chronological snobbery" and "consequentialism", yet here the Register is guilty of both faults.
