Today, published on its website a 12-page synopsis of the Catholic position regarding the death penalty, and in doing so provides readers with a solid, easy read on why the Catholic Church is vehemously opposed to Capital Punishment.

I highly recommend that those interested in this issue take the time to read through this article, as well as the links it provides. It’s not easy to take such a complicated issue and hone it down into a concise presentation such as this, and my hat’s off to writers Laura Dobson and Denise O’Toole Kelly for their efforts.
