When I was a child in Sunday School I learned that everyone is made in the image of God. We were taught to recognize God in every human being—even “the least of us.”
I oppose the death penalty because it denies the fact that even those who have done the worst of things are still made in the image of God. While the state has the right to hold people accountable for the harm they do, it should not cross the line and seek to stand in the place of the Creator.
I oppose the death penalty.
