More on Tookie

Kim du Toit has a link to a post by from the grandstand on his new blog. He recommends it as the best essay he's ever read on the topic of the death penalty, redemption and reformation. Here is the link to the grandstand post. I tend to agree.

Tookie may be redeemed. He may have placed his trust in the Lord Jesus for forgiveness from his sins and a place in heaven may, in fact, be waiting for him. However, this is irrelevant to the issue of whether he should be put to death for his crimes. All that matters to the issue of his execution is his guilt and whether what he did merits death. He is guilty and if multiple cold blooded murders are not worthy of the death penalty then nothing is.
