Founding partner of The Simple Way community and bestselling author of "Executing Grace: Why It is Time to Put the Death Penalty to Death."
Shane Claiborne

"Violence is the disease, not the cure. Killing is the problem, not the solution. We do not rape people who rape, nor should we kill those who kill. When we execute, we legitimate the very violence we are trying to rid the world of. As a Christian, I believe in grace. I believe Jesus came to heal the sick. Much of the Bible was written by murderers who were given a second chance. Moses. David. Saul. The Bible would be much shorter without grace. It is time for Christians to be pro-life and stand against the death penalty."
