So good that the Catholic

So good that the Catholic Church is visibly fighting in to abolish the death penalty. The Texas Catholic bishops are members of many coalitions, including the Texas Moratorium Network to stop the killing. The Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty is doing wonderful work, and you can follow my lead and send a small donation by clicking the “donate” button.
Last Sunday the one-hour Boston Legal episode featured Texas, with James Spader delivering a soul-rending plea to the judges in Texas to not kill. This review of the show gives a good account of the story. Really a wonderful show. It ends with Spader’s and his colleague, Chelina, watching the execution. Horrifying and gripping television that is talking to Texas and helping the Catholic Bishops in their campaign.
