Quote of the day

Walter Kaiser makes this comment regarding the death penalty:

“Such action is favoured in scripture, not because men are sovereign or because society and the bereaved are somehow benefited, but because man is so vastly important to God – he is made in the image of God. To kill another person is to kill God in effigy.”

And we all know the fuss that is made whenever a effigy of some world leader is burnt.
