    Hill's vigilante approach was condemnable and unjustifiable: it was murder. As a murderer, his execution was just.

    I pray for the day that abortion is declared illegal and abortionist doctors are prosecuted as murderers, just as Hill was. May it be soon. But in praying for that, God help us not to become as those monstrously wicked that we oppose.

    Today is a sad day...

    Yea I must agree with you guys, I believe Gods word is clear on this subject.I use to work at a building that performed abortions and I would see those women come out after the procedure they would be crying and bent over in pain then at night a vehicle would come by and pick up I guess the remains of the child. I understand the guys anger but still not justified.

    JESUS COME BACK SOON

    I am sorry. But murdering is wrong. Two wrongs do not make a right.

    I will pray for both families.

    I believe it was unjustified for our laws and it was appropriate that he suffer the consequences.
    I do wonder if perhaps his only crime that he would have to answer to God for was disobedience to authorities though. He murdered a murderer, but it wasn't his job to do so, it was the job of the courts to make him responsible.
    I'm a bit suprised to hear he got the death penalty when many murderers don't. People rape babies, stab women to death, don't get the death penalty but a vigilante murder does get the death penalty. It's strange, but to be honest I don't think I heard of this particular case before. If I did I completely forgot about it.

    Although he was wrong in the eyes of the law, I do not feel that the punishment fit the crime in this case.

    Andrea Yates gets life for drowning her five children, but this man gets death for killing a killer. If anything, justice should at least be consistent.

    One person gets life for murdering five innocent children another is put to death for defending countless innocents, what kind of justice system allows that to happen?

    Would this man have recieved the death penalty if he had killed a serial killer?

    In self-defense, obviously not. But in order to maintain a decent legal system, we can't end up assigning value to different people and varying sentences based on how much "merit" the victim has. That's a slippery slope: would it not be more of a "loss" to society if a doctor were murdered than a homeless person? Then give their killers different sentences!

    Obviously nobody would advocate the above scenario. I do believe, however, that Andrea Yates should have got the death penalty.

    "If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye: for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of , but on your part he is glorified.

    BUT let none of you suffer as a murderer , or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busy body in other men's matters.

    Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on his behalf." 1 peter 4

    Sadly this guy was defiant to the end, he did not hang his head in shame but "gloried in his shame" If he was born again and did wake up in glory with the Father like he claimed he would, he will hang his head in shame.

    His punishment was just!

    Paul Hill met his master today. The abortion murderer met the multitudes of wicked demonic men in hell. Paul Hill paid for his act today and the murderer of the innocents is still paying and paying and paying.....Thank God.

    Thanks ------Bart

    We should not have killed Mr. Hill. It doesn't matter what he has done. I do not believe that the government should be involved in any type of capital punishment. Life imprisonment, I have no problem with. Death, no way.

    It is the duty of the
    state (like the State of FLorida) to punish
    evil doers. Florida did the right
    thing. Amen. [​IMG]

    I do not believe in the Death Penalty. It is tempting to say yes in some cases, but the death penalty is not dealt with equally. I believe that the proper punishment would be life in prison, without parole.

    Now as far as the abortion killing, Rev. Hill should have stood against him and if the zeal is correct, within time the baby killer would have shut down, leave town or get right with God. It seems strange that an otherwise decent person, kills someones who kills innocent babies and inturn gets killed by a government who allows the killing of innocent babies. that is why the death penalty is not fair.

    How bizarre is this?

    You are for the display of a large rock (which is not commanded in Scripture), but against the death penalty (of which both Christ and Paul spoke of)?

    Yes. He broke the law. His actions were done knowing full well that someone would likely be killed. The State of Florida has a death penalty for murder I. The penalty was death. If you favor the death penalty, then it was an appropriate sentence. Additionally, he never showed any remorse.

    This is not an arguement about abortion. Assuming that you believe abortion is wrong, then two wrongs don't make a right.

    Gunther you still don't get it. It was never about a rock, it was about the ROCK.

    Under the "law", the Death penalty was practiced equally. Under our modern judicial system it is not. Surely you understand that.

    Let's leave WWF wrestling out of this. OTOH, I thought Sean Connery gave a splendid performance.
    While I don't think that the death penalty is scripturally immoral, I can certainly see Jailminister's point that it is not necessarily appropriate in contemporary society. After all, stoning, hanging, and beheading were once socially acceptible, and today they are considered reprehensible.

    So long as the death penalty is used sparingly, I don't have a personal problem with it. However, I would not be unhappy if the US did away with the death penalty in favor of true life w/o parole.
