One of the reasons that I like Texas so much is their death penalty laws. Of course it's mischaracterized by the liberal brainwashing factories (ie: network and cable news stations) but it's done a lot to deter crime and make Texas a safer place to live.
And I agree with Crisco and Miss Foxy about our religious beliefs. If we don't use them in EVERY aspect of our lives, then they're meaningless. Thus, a true person of faith will use his/her religious views to make ALL decisions in their life.
Saying, "that's what terrorists do" is just ridiculously ignorant and deceitful.
