The Christmas Conspiracy!
Federal Issues
Capital Punishment

The 108th Congress should:

  • eliminate capital punishment from all federal crimes.

Members of The Christmas Conspiracy oppose any further shedding of blood. "Capital punishment" in western civilization is historically derived from Biblical passages which demanded that the blood of capital criminals be shed:

Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.
Genesis 9:6

Smaller sins could be atoned for through the temple sacrifices: lambs, turtledoves, etc., but some crimes were so serious that atonement could not be made in any other way than by the shedding of the blood of the criminal himself:

So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.
Numbers 35:33

In cases of unsolved homicide, where the murderer could not be found, Deuteronomy 21 required the town elders to shed the blood of a heifer  in order to atone for the shedding of innocent blood:

{7} "Then they shall answer and say, 'Our hands have not shed this blood, nor have our eyes seen it.
{8} 'Provide atonement, O LORD, for Your people Israel, whom You have redeemed, and do not lay innocent blood to the charge of Your people Israel.' And atonement shall be provided on their behalf for the blood.
{9} "So you shall put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you when you do what is right in the sight of the LORD.

Christian theologians for 2000 years have rightly concluded that in our day only the blood of Christ can provide such atonement in cases where the murderer cannot be found, and the shedding of the heifer's blood is not called for. (It would in fact be blasphemous.) Yet they persist in requiring the shedding of the criminal's blood when the murderer is found..
