What Every Catholic Should Know about the Death Penalty

The Catholic Mobilizing Network to End Use of the Death Penalty (CMN) has done a great service by creating this two page resource for the faith community.

It gives a concise overview of Scripture and church teaching on the death penalty.  The resource also includes key facts and arguments against capital punishment.  It closes with several suggestions for Catholics to pray, learn, educate, and advocate against the death penalty.

This basic educational tool is a must for any serious abolitionist working with faith communities.
