I know that in this world there are murdered victims’ families against the death penalty; they are only notable and rare. I respect their decision to oppose capital punishment but I strongly denounce their attempts to ask for a worldwide abolition of it.
Although I agree with them in being able to forgive their loved ones’ killers, which is the right thing to do, I disagree when they say that the death penalty is nothing but revenge. Those Christian murdered victims’ families who claim that the death penalty is against mercy of God are making a fatal error, they should not mix up the mercy and justice of God together. There are many other Christian theologians or writers will disagree with them for sure.
They should not be misled by other abolitionists who want to make the world a paradise for criminals. Just take a look at what happen to Illinois when they abolished the death penalty.
When I hear them giving speeches against the death penalty, I wonder why not get those murdered victims’ families who support executions to speak too. I know that those against executions are only 20% but those who support are 80%. Do not allow yourself to be use by the abolitionists for their anti-death penalty (criminal rights) propaganda, many other murdered victims’ families want to see their loved ones’ killers put to death, they want justice and not revenge. The more you give those testimony of yours, the more you grieve the other victims’ families.

From the Pro Death Penalty Quotes website:
Ask the following people what they have gone through:
1. Family members of Holly Carol Washa
5. Family members of Dawn Marie Garvin
8. Parents of Jennifer Cardy
9. Officer Hector Garza’s family
10. Fumiko Isogai
11. Davida Brown
12. Family members of Jamie Bulger and and Moosa Mukhtiar Ahmed
I suspect those abolitionists will not campaign against the Black Vultures of Iran and Adolf Eichmann as their crimes are so heinous.
