DeathLaw - Religion

1) Two men wait to see if a Sharia court declares them gay and orders them stoned to death.

2) In Australia, Catholics are urged to take up their faith and oppose the death penalty because "opposition to the death penalty is a part of the Christian witness to the Gospel of life."

3) From Rome, the Catholic Community of Sant'Egidio is organizing and coordinating opposition to the death penalty in 320 cities: "Whoever wants to be there will try to think of how it is possible now to have a higher level of justice, justice without revenge and a restorative justice than never denies life."
