There’s been a lot of debate about Catholicism on Twitter Thursday after Speaker Nancy Pelosi took great offense at the suggestion that she “hated” Donald Trump. She angrily stated that she has no hatred of anyone and prays for the president daily.
And then there’s the debate over the death penalty and the question of how one can be pro-life at the same time. Of course, there’s the obvious argument that an unborn baby is innocent and someone on death row certainly is not. Anti-death penalty activist Sister Helen Prejean, author of “Dead Man Walking” (that was turned into a film starring Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn), kicked things off Thursday with this tweet:
TN plans to execute Lee Hall tonight. Lee is blind — a result of the state’s refusal to treat the glaucoma he developed in prison. A state worker will have to guide Lee into the electric chair due to his disability. Another example of our system’s devolving standards of decency. pic.twitter.com/BSamFEYsU9
