Sizing Up The Presidential Candidates (Part 3)

The Death Penalty/Punishment
• The Church teaches that the death penalty is acceptable
in principle but should be avoided in practice.
• The responsibility of elected officials is to ensure that penal

upon the strength of the penal system and the commensurateness
of the sentencing procedures.
