Diocese of Southern Ohio objects to reinstatement of death penalty

From Southern Ohio-

The Diocese of Southern Ohio, in partnership with other community faith leaders, and a host of death row exonerees, is urgently encouraging Governor Kasich to reconsider the reinstatement of this punishment given the state’s questionable history of wrongful convictions and botched executions.

“While certain crimes can be difficult to forgive, we must remember that we are all children of God,” Bishop Thomas Breidenthal said. “As Christians, we should respect human life as precious, and not sanction death via our very human, and sometimes flawed, criminal justice system.”

Those looking to learn more or get involved with the movement are encouraged to contact their respective congress person or senator and ask them to halt this process, or by signing the petition via the link below:
