Being a Christian is one of the most important decisions I have ever made.

I try to live my life in a way that would please God, and accept there are things in the World that displease God. Like the Death Penalty, cruelty, racism, bullying, famine, poverty……this list keeps growing, I pray about these, discuss them and try to get things changed.

I am also a realist and know sometimes things happen that cannot be changed. I am having a discussion with
Doc T about Hollywood and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arni is Governor of California and signed the death warrant for Stanley Williams last month. I will never agree with the Death Penalty (read the blog entry below for my full views on that). As Governor Arni has the power to give a stay of execution, but there has to be a valid reason in law to offer this. He has a full legal team to go over all the case and any new points that have been raised, these are gone over with a fine toothed comb, before a discision is made.He cannot just say give a stay, that would be wrong. He would be able to change any ruling a Judge and Jury made then, what would that lead too? Bribes, corruption and number of opportunities to change rulings for friends and those who can pay to get off?
