An even darker level of moral depravity

Digby writes:

I have written quite a bit about the Cameron Todd Willingham horror, mostly because the idea of executing an innocent man is so horrifying. I’m hardcore anti-death penalty in any case, but this one is particularly awful because there’s a ton of evidence that the state knew he was innocent and executed him anyway. It’s an even darker level of moral depravity than most. And it’s entirely possible that the buck stops with a man who could be the next president of the United States.

Church growth thought of the day: maybe evangelicals should scrap the colorful bulletins and billboards, and the coffeehouses inside the church buildings, and focus on loving as Jesus loved. If we promote a presidential candidate so far from Christian orthodoxy that he defines “pro-life” as “using state power to murder innocent people,” we shouldn’t be surprised to watch people walking past our doors.
