Ok, going back on my promise

But I guess this is as economic related as it is socially conservative. A co-ed blogs about the crappiness of her latest hookup, which apparently cost ~$276 for what was supposed to be a OKCupid internet date.

BTW, I'd assume artisanal ginger ale, is the type of thing you might find at a farmer's market in New York City. Just guessing though.

I am impressed by how various companies profited from this young woman's foray into the Valley of the Culture of Death though. I thought Planned Parenthood did STD testing and Plan B for free.

That is sad. I don't condone that kind of behavior for the cost that she lists last - "my dignity".

I believe when a person dies they cease to exist. That is not enough of a punishment. Hard time is a better punishment. Now, if a felon were to face judgment for his life on earth, then the death penalty might make more sense.

And what about those wrongly convicted? As long as he/she is alive, there is a chance for justice to prevail.

This is the result of the sexual revolution, the result of the lies told about contraceptives (and seems at least partially to be the story of a failed contraceptive).

Very sad indeed.

Oddly enough, I'm with you on that one, or perhaps not so odd given that I'm no conservative, I'm a consistent ethic of life Catholic.

If the felon were to face judgement for his life on earth, then the death penalty becomes worse than anything he could have done, save maybe sending his victims to hell ahead of him. Either way, I agree with soon-to-be-Saint Pope John Paul The Great: the primary use of the death penalty should be for the protection of other people in the society; and there's no need to use it if you have the technological ability to prevent escape.

Theodore Seeber said...

It's too severe if he goes to hell and too lenient if he just ceases to exist.

Theodore Seeber said...

Yep, that about sums it up.

A subset of this is the comparison between common execution in the United States and the horrific crimes that lead to it- it's always either too lenient (because it is painless) or too severe (because the perpetrator could not have known the end result of his actions beforehand). It is the punishment that never, ever fits the crime.
