Death Penalty ? Yea or Nay?

Americans who favor the death penalty most often cite "an eye for an eye" as the reason they hold their position, with 35% mentioning it according to a recent poll. While a majority of Americans tilt in favor of the death penalty, the one in three Americans who oppose it also have a diversity of views as to why the ultimate penalty should not be used. "Wrong to take a life" has been the top reason for opposing it since 1991.


What’s Your Take? Why do you support or oppose the death penalty?

I oppose the death penalty. Killing a person for killing someone else is not a deterrant

I do not support the death penalty. Too often life or death depends on how much you can spend on a good lawyer.

Nay,I do not believe in anyone taking a life

One cruel and inhumane act does not justify another. How can Christians that oppose abortions support the death penalty?
