Say what?

Over at Verus Ratio, on the topic of the recent ruling against the death penalty, he states:

But here, the judge has set himself up as a legislature, overruling the expressed will of the vast majority of the American people, who view the death penalty as just and necessary.

If it truly is a majority, and I do not think it is any longer, the majority must be 51% (Yay) to 49% (Nay). More and more states are coming to the conclusion that the death penalty is not a deterrent, it is more costly and innocent people have been convicted. We do not yet know if an innocent person has been executed, but we know they have been convicted.

Personally, I feel it was the right decision, and I applaud the ruling. I know many others feel the same way. Perhaps if Verus Ratio put aside his desire for revenge, and saw the ruling in light of some Christian charity and mercy, he'd see the value in it.
