Knock 'em Dead

   The line which drew the loudest applause in last week's Republican debates at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library was a question moderator Brian Williams started to pose for Governor Rick Perry of Texas, noting that under the governor's tenure 234 death row inmates had been executed.

   How odd, I thought, that the vast majority, if not all, of those clapping probably considered themselves not only good Christians, but pro-life, to boot. How do they reconcile their unbridled enthusiasm for capital punishment with the teachings of Christ?

   Boggles the mind, it does.
