It been almost 50 years since Canadians realized that murder is murder, whether committed by an individual or by the state. The taking of a life is inherently wrong. For those Christian Fundamentalists who inhabit the far right (And not all Christians are Right wing Btw, nor is it just Christians who inhabit the Extreme right), and would see a return to this state sanctioned blood-shed, please refer to the 6th commandment, "Thou shalt not kill/murder". Perhaps these good Christians are then assuming that the State is above God's law? I pray to which ever God will hear me that our country does not once again, fall back into the dark ages where human life has so little meaning, that we can so easily applaud the taking of one. This is where we are heading and the decline has commenced.
