Dear Friend of America's Survival,
On Thursday, the state of Florida executed gay prostitute Gary Ray Bowles (above) for killing six other homosexuals. Murderpedia lists Bowles' method of murder as blunt force injury, strangulation, and/or shooting. After he killed his victims, he would stuff toilet paper or sex toys down their throats.
Article 2267 of the Catholic catechism, an authoritative compendium of church teaching, once said that the church “does not exclude recourse to the death penalty, if this is the only possible way of effectively defending human lives” against criminals. Marxist Pope Francis changed it, saying Catholics should not support the death penalty under any circumstances.
Bowles' attorneys argued that he was "intellectually disabled" and should not be put to death.
This is another reason why Catholics should not put one cent into the collection plates on Sunday.
The death penalty is not immoral and support for it has been part of Christian and Catholic tradition in the old and new testaments.
The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops asked Gov. Ron DeSantis to stop the execution, saying, "He [Bowles] is a human being who survived many years of childhood abuse and, after escaping his stepfather’s violence as a young teenager, endured years of homelessness and child prostitution... Killing him will only further erode the sense of the sacredness of human life and implicate us all – the citizens of the State of Florida – in his death."
Clinton-appointed Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg once voted to delay the execution of a convicted killer on the ground that the jury that gave him the death sentence failed to take into consideration charges that he was drunk at the time he committed the murder and had a troubled childhood.
The intervention of Pope Francis and he Catholic Bishops constitute nothing less than an attempt to impose what has been called a “new global legal order” on the United States. It’s an insidious campaign to replace U.S. law with “international law” and United Nations treaties. In a 1999 case, Knight v. Florida, Clinton-appointed U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer voted to give a stay of execution to a convicted killer scheduled for execution on death row in Virginia. He cited several foreign court rulings as justification for his decision.
A Supreme Court justice takes an oath swearing allegiance to the U.S. Constitution. So why aren’t Breyer’s views grounds for removal from office?
That oath is:
“I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
