"Capital punishment feeds the cycle of violence in society by pandering to a lust for revenge. It brutalizes us,

and deadens our sensitivities to the precious nature of every single human life."
-- Rev. David B. Thompson, Bishop of Charleston, S.C., December 3, 1998

"The abolition of the death penalty is making us a civilized society.

It shows we actually do mean business when we say we have reverence for life." 
- Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
