Here's One The Moslems Got Right
Give credit where credit's due

Some of the article from The Daily Mail;
Paedophile to be beheaded and crucified in Saudi Arabia for string of sex attacks where he left toddler to die in desert

A man in Saudi Arabia is to be beheaded and crucified after he raped five children and left one of them, a three-year-old boy, to die in the desert.
An appeal court in the capital Riyadh approved the death sentence handed down in June by judges in the northwestern oasis city of Hail where the convicted 22-year-old man carried out his crimes.

The rapist - who was not named - was arrested several weeks ago as he tried to seize another boy after offering him a ride home from school.

The seven-year-old - who escaped unharmed - helped identify the culprit. The man’s victims were aged between three and seven. He was said to have lured them into his car as they left school at midday and then drove them to remote desert locations to rape them.

Don't they have this backward? Shouldn't it be crucified and then beheaded?

I wonder if NAMBLA will issue a protest? :-) :( *sarcastic grin*

Behead him first? That was my question as well. Dang muslims can't get anything right.

The Bible is so convenient and reliable to fall on as a resource for quotations, "then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. —Matthew 26:52, King James Version."

Cinn,
I guess you never tire of showing your ignorance.

That particular verse pertains thos who literally "live by the sword". You know... bad people.

Not only is there verse after verse stating that it is correct to defend yourself when applicable (both on the spot, judiciously, and in time of war) even if it means the death of the agggressor... but Holy Mother The Church, for 2,000 years, has authorized the death penalty.

BTW, I couldn't help but notice you use the heretical so-called "King James Version". Why am I not suprised?

Granted that, in the case of pedophiles, reform is unlikely, but repentance is possible. And for this reason, I would prefer not to execute a man who can be kept harmless to others.

As Sister Mary Martha is wont to say, God desires the salvation of absolutely EVERY soul, even the most vile and degenerate, and those who seek to do His will should also desire this.

It is for this reason that I find your satisfaction in the execution of criminals troubling.

You place man-made time constraints on the power of the Holy Ghost.

It is for this reason that I find your satisfaction in the endless delay of well deserved expiation of sin (in the form of a just punishment) troubling.

Jesus said more stuff about swords, and He spoke well of the Centurion, a man of war, a leader of warriors, constantly in battles killing people. He told St Peter that two swords is sufficient for the Apostles. Similarly, a few good Marines is sufficient force given all the insurgents and hostile realms in this world.

Would this man be executed if he merely raped little girls?
