Pope Francis stated that the death penalty was wrong. The Pope said that executions were wrong in all cases.
As a law abiding American, I am so glad to receive advice from the Pope. This is the same Roman Catholic Church that protected pedophile priests from criminal prosecution for decades. This is the same Church that encouraged Cardinal Eugene Tisserant and Cardinal Antonio Caggiano to assist and aid Nazi War Criminals. These two Cardinals helped a number of Nazi War Criminals evade justice after World War II.
Once again, I believe that the Pope is wrong. On April 15,2013, two bombs were detonated 12 seconds and 210 yards apart at the Boston Marathon. 264 totally innocent people were injured and 14 people required amputations. This act of mindless terrorism was committed by the Tsarnev brothers in behalf of Islamic terrorism.
Today Dzhokhar Tsarnev remains in jail after being convicted of this horrible act. He was sentenced to death by a court of law. I take no pleasure in the execution of Tsarnev. However, I am certain that it is the right thing to do. Every day this terrorist lives in jail at taxpayer expense other terrorists throughout the world are emboldened by America’s failure to execute him. Since President Trump is head of the Executive branch of the U.S. government, I hope that President Trump directs the Attorney General to expedite the court’s order to execute this terrorist.
Lastly, I believe that execution by firing squad is the most humane form of execution. The Catholic Church use to burn heretics at the stake after torturing them.

Editor’s Note 2- Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican’s chief exorcist for 26 years stated: ” … Some Cardinals do not believe in Jesus and Bishops are linked to the Demon,,,,, the Devil is at work in the Vatican.”
