Conservative voices growing louder in opposition to death penalty11 Apr

In this season of celebrating the Resurrection, we are happy to find new voices concerned about ending the death penalty in the U. S. and especially in Kentucky. A recent video posted on YouTube features Michael Janocik, a Kentuckian from the Louisville area who is a member of St. Michael Parish in the Archdiocese.

Since there are several skill-building events scheduled for April 16 and 17 for Catholics who want to learn more about the church’s teaching on the death penalty and how to use it in advocating for repeal of the death penalty, it seems appropriate to post Mike’s comments here.

For more information on the advocacy workshops see our earlier post. You can register for one of the events by clicking here.

To see what other conservatives are saying visit Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. For example, Sen. Rand Paul has this to say:

Even in the United States where we have the best due process probably in the world, we have probably executed people wrongfully for the death penalty, then found out through DNA testing many people on death row are there inaccurately. And even Republicans have pulled back their beliefs some on death penalty.
