I am not going to adopt a power of God.  Why do liberals that don't
believe in God invoke his name so often?  (Don't get me wrong Joseph,
you might believe it God.  I have no way of knowing.  This is for all
the liberals who don't believe in God....they know who they are.)

Justice is a function of government.  I do not support the death
penalty for vengence.  I support it for justice.  "Thou shalt not
kill" is a poor translation of the meaning of the commandment.  "Thou
shalt not commit murder" is a much better rendition.

Adding to a previous thread (on a different list)...

You might be a liberal....

if you believe unborn babies should be killed, but murderers should
be protected....

if you've ever said that capital punishment is murder.....
