August 15, 2017 – Faith & Society: Capital Punishment
Season 10, Episode 33
In this regard United States law is consistent with countries like China, Iran, the Sudan, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. This week on Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and the death penalty in America. What does faith have to say about the use of the death penalty in society? Is the death penalty an acceptable form of punishment in certain circumstances? When we hear the phrase “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” as that scriptural advocacy for the death penalty? The Rabbi will have some things to say about that! What do you think, is killing people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong the right direction? The death penalty within our faith traditions, also, a conversation about retributive and restorative justice, what does faith have to say about it? – That conversation on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
