According to jesus and god, you must not kill him. Heck, you're not even supposed to be judging him. The RCC has relatively recently turned
pacifist, it was against the iraq war and its against the death penalty.
Not only that,is Islam still based on the whole "tooth for a tooth.Eye for an eye" doctrine?
"Eye for an eye" is from the bible.
"Eye for an eye" means "do not let the punishment be excessive, if a man knocks out your eye, you don't get to kill him, if he steals from you,
you don't get to cut off his hand" etc. Why do you think that islam is 'based' on exodus? Is it in the koran??
Should it surprise us that they are vindictive.
"They"? All muslims are vindictive now? The secyular court that is trying hussein represents all muslims? Why is it 'vindictive' to execute a mass
All part of the coming one world religion.
So, because the pope is following the teachings of jesus, its the coming of an evil one world religion. Interesting.
The people that are accusing him... have they not commited the same types of acts?
The people of iraq? THey are the ones trying him, he is being executed for gassing villages and using genocide to prop up his dictatorial totalitarian
I would forgive him... providing he understood why I was forgiving him.
So in other words, you wouldn't forgive him. He'd recognize your forgiveness as a sign of weakness, and when you forgave him or released him, he'd
come back to repreat his previous horrors.
If he's given the death sentence, after he gave his little speech, he may becom a Martyr for those who follow Extremeist Islam.
Who says he even gets to make a speech? And the muslim radicals in iraq are mostly the shia, they hate him, they're the ones that were dancing in the
streets when they heard he was going to die. He's not going to become a martyr for the religious extremists. At most, he'll be seen as a hero for
the baathists, but anyone not already invovled in the insurgency isn't going to join out of loyalty to hussein.
Better to have him live the rest of his days in a jail cell.
If we leave him alive, and leave iraq, there's a damned good chance that he'll bring himself back to power again. Don't let the humiliation of
having his teeth checked with a penlight trick anyone into thinking that this guy isn't powerful and dangerous. THis is precisely what he's been
waiting for. He 'stood up' to the US in the lead up to the war, knowing, from gulf 1, that it'd be a disaster, he quickly went into hiding, he's
hoping that he's alive when the americans leave because we can't tolerate nasty fighting, its what his entire strategy was based on, the americans
will fight, get tired, leave, and then he'll re-take control. This is a guy that used poison gas to suppress
a populace that he was already
occupying, he'll go a helluva lot more to re-conquer it.
We are supposed to follow the Commandments , not the code of Hammurabi.
Lets stick to sensible civil legislation, not the irrational commands of prehistoric goat herders.
If your whole family was wiped out by this man, save yourself, could you ever forgive this man? Answer honestly,please.
Me? Hell no. But pretty clearly, jesus insists that people do so. Heck jesus insisted that people not even struggle against
guys like hussein.
That is what is prompting the RCC to say 'don't execute him'.
