The United States executed its 29th person for the year on Monday.
Great God! What are we to do? I suppose the New Testament will inform us how to kill more people! Oh. I guess not. At least not the copy I use.
Great YHWH! The Hebrew Scriptures have lots of great tips. Yet Israel has judicially executed only one person in all its modern history; Adolph Eichmann.
Great Allah! The Koran's tips apply mostly to unbelievers, but its jurisprudence is the same basic Fertile Crescent eye-for-an-eye model. But it's generally the fundamentalists in that religion, too, that are so focused on vengeance.
Oh no! The United States is suffering from a vengeance gap and a fundamentalism gap!
