A lot of people give the LDS church a ration of shit. People say it’s a cult. Some people don’t consider the LDSers Christians, and it’s just plain creepy that they run the entire state of Utah. Well, the Mormons and other Beehive Staters proved them all correct yesterday when the government-cheese executed convicted killer Ronnie Lee Gardner.

While I may be a progressive in some aspects, when it comes to the death penalty, I’m almost always for it’s swift use. The exception is any black man living below the Mason-Dixon Line…you Klansmen out there know what I’m talkin’ ‘bout. But I have a real problem in this case.

The problem isn’t with the execution itself…the problem I have is that it was done in Utah. You see, if the state of Utah is run by the Mormon Church and the Mormon Church believes itself to be Christian, WTF are they doing executing anyone? Hell, the Utah Attorney General even TWEETED from the death chamber. HOW THE FUCK IS THAT CHRISTIAN? From what I’ve read in the Christian Bible, there are a million places where JZeus and His Dad talk about how killing is wrong. They talk about forgiveness and mercy. Do the Mormons follow those tenets of their Holy Book? No. But they sure have their magic underwear in a bunch over gay marriage…something that isn’t even mentioned in the Bible.

As long as the State of Utah has the death penalty as an option…no matter how heinous the crime, they’re not Christians. Hell, they’re no better than the perp they’re poppin’ caps at. Hypocrites? Yes. Men and women of God? No way in Hell.

Have you ever actually OPENED the Bible, PJ? Since you haven't yet burst into flames I can only conclude the answer is no. Jesus and his Dad were anti-murder, not anti-capital punishment.

Genesis 9:6

"Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man."

The following is a list of crimes the Bible deems punishable by death.
1)Murder (Gen 9:6, Ex 21:12, Numb 35:16-21).
2)Abuse of father or mother (Ex 21:15).
3)Speaking a curse over parents (Ex 21:17).
4)Blasphemy against God (Lev 24:14-16,23).
5)Breaking the Sabbath (Ex 31:14, Numb 15:32-36).
6)Practicing magic (Ex 22:18).
7)Fortune telling and practicing sorcery (Lev 20:27).
8)Religious people who mislead others to fall away (Deut 13:1-5, 18:20).
9)Adultery and fornication (Lev 20:10-12, Deut 22:22).
10)If a woman has intercourse before marriage (Deut 22:20-21).
11)If two people have intercourse when one of them is engaged. (Deut 22:23-24).
12)The daughter of a priest practicing prostitution (Lev 21:9).
13)Rape of someone who is engaged (Deut 22:25).
14)Having intercourse with animals (Ex 22:19).
15)Worshipping idols (Ex 22:20, Lev 20:1-5, Deut 17:2-7).
16)Incest (Lev 20:11-12, 14, 19-21).
17)Homosexuality (Lev 20:13).
18)Kidnapping (Ex 21:16).
19)To bear false testimony at a trial (Deut 19:16, 19).

20)Contempt of court (Deut 17:8-13).

The manner of execution in the Old Testament could be stoning, burning, using a sword, spear or arrow (Lev 20:27, 21:9, Ex 19:13, 32:27, Numb 25:7-8).

And out of the mouth of Jesus himeslf - Matthew 26:52

Then saith Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
