Hot Blogs/Hot Posts

 I never, for one moment, thought I would take a look at any of the Saddam Hussein hanging videos.  

 Well, tonight I did. I was very nervous,  but the video I saw was shaky and not as explicit as I imagined it to be. At the time I was thinking  “He deserves this.”  Billions of people will be thinking the same.

  But, after I’d  watched that, I went back to the main WordPress page and saw another post… Dying Mans Daily Journal

What can I say?

    he did kill thousands of people.. and he may not have deserved to die.. but they could’ve let him rot in prison for the rest of his life.. with no parole ever… But the people he murdered didn’t deserve to die the way they did either..Some might say “eye for an eye”

    Mmm… The comparison with him and The Dying Man, though. So unfair.

    An eye for an eye and the world goes blind.

    Think I might have started a debate here. The point I’m making is, that Hussein killed many innocent people and should have suffered/died, whatever. My friend the Dying Man, hurt no-one….

    The dying man hasn’t killed anyone .. and yes it is unfair… There is no comparison..ones a murdering sob.. and the other is a guy trying to get through a horrible illness .. and trying to appreciate his life.. I read some of his blog.. and it is so sad…

    Well said Pocket. I love that quote.

    For Christians who quote “an eye for an eye”, they must look up what Jesus actually said about that Old Testament law. He actually abolished it and taught his followers a new ethos.

    There is no comparison between the two men and of course Saddams crimes were atrocious and we should never let them happen again. But we don’t (or shouldn’t) get to say who lives and who dies. And we really need to get ourselves away from this dreadful global culture of killing. If Saddam was a barbaric man (which he was) then the killing of Saddam was state barbarism too. Do we really want to see that sort of *democracy* or do we want to hold ourselves higher than that?

    Capital punishment sends out the message that killing solves problems.
