Last night, as you may have heard, the state of Florida executed a man who had killed two children (we were supposed to be there, but got kind of screwed out of witnessing the execution â?¦ long story). Anyway, this man was black and had converted to Islam in prison. So, what do the Sentinel commenters have to say?
Yes but the thing is he will not be asking god to forgive him, he will have to ask the DEVIL, because he is one of his disciple's.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. I hope those two little girls are resting in piece.
This man converted to Islam while in prison. Islam has absolutely no provision for the forgiveness of sin, except for a vague promisless hope that a far-off and remote Alah will be gracious to them in eternity... and Alah who would be more likely to forgive sins if hey had turned themselves into a human bomb. This man is certainly burning in an eternal hell. And it's just the beginning. Eternity has once been described in this way... there's a block of granite 1,000 miles wide, 1,000 miles deep and 1,000 miles high. Only once every 1,000 years a humming bird comes by to sharpen his beak on that block of granite. The amount of time it will take to wear that block of granite down to nothing is not even one day in eternity. And even that description has a limit while eternity has none. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life." No one comes to the Father, but by Me."
He converted to be a Muslem while in jail. Stupid boy made bad decisions all the way to the end.
He won't kill any one else, who said the death penality is not a deterant. Was he any kin to Obamy, both muslim's.
Good bye Chicken Coop. You will not be remembered. Lethal injection is simply just too easy. A POS like this truely needed to feel a little pain for what he did. Let's go back to hanging. It sure would be a lot cheaper and would bother the thugs quite a bit waiting to get their neck snapped, eyes and ears still working, knowing they are dead before they are really dead.
