Common Good Issues - Why We Must Abolish the Death Penalty

Common Good Issues - Why We Must Abolish the Death Penalty

January 14, 2022

Doug Pagitt and Dan Deitrich make the case that the death penalty is morally problematic, racially biased, and counter to the way of Jesus. And beyond that, it's just a bad idea to give the government the power to kill its own citizens - especially when for every nine people executed, one person on death row is exonerated.
