NEW: State Council of Churches Supports Chafee’s Decision to Appeal Pleau Ruling
Monday, May 14, 2012
Rev. Dr. Don Anderson released the following statement:
"We remain strongly opposed to the death penalty as a matter of moral principle. We believe it to be an affront to God and dehumanizing for society as whole. … Our opposition to the death penalty is intended as an affirmation of the sacredness of human life and as an appeal to all for greater individual and societal efforts for a more humane and just society."
Chafee announced his plans to appeal the decision last week.
