over a threeoption ballot measure Mario Cuomo has thrown a and conquer is the governors approach curve ball at Republicans reasons for opposing the death penalty the State trying to Mile consistent are wrong He says that it brutal strike them out over1 the death penalty V Cuomd who has vetoed death penalty legislation for 12 years and is now seeking reelection to a fourth has proposed that the assem bly let voters decide the issue by referendum He wants the ballot to offer three choices Cal Thomas In addition to the death penalty option voters could choose to impose life in prison without the possibility of parole If they v that it does not deter that it is an irre act of and that innocent peo pie can be mistakenly put to death Cuomo believes that life in prison without Sparole is a punishment that fits the crime of mur der It does not It is like taking away someones ice cream as a penalty for stealing a car Depriving someone of liberty even for the rest of his life is y not a sufficient penalty for taking the life of anoth human being To suggest that it is devalues the life that has been taken indeed it sends a message to society that life is cheap or less dear than it

streets and into prison will guarantee fewer idilers But killers are bred not born Removing some of the current bunch does nothing to curtail the making of new ones The death penalty does not brutalize society Murderers brutalize society The death penalty is societys response to this brutalization It is a mat ter of justice It is the way society maintains a high view of human life There are other crimes or series of crimed which can land one in prison for We Capital punishment is a way to set the crime of murder above all other categories and to say that this act is one to which only one penalty is suffi cient Is life in prison Without parole better than the current system Older which some killers are paroled only to loll again It is and if that is all Republicans can get from this Democratic gover nor they should settle for what he proposes Of course there is always die Call election and a Republican could unseat Cuomo But Republicans in the assembly shouldnt wait for the uncertain results of that balloting in hopes of passing a straightforward yesorno death penalty law That would mean settling for the unacceptable status quo just so they can keep a political issue

throughout the cen turies Why ate the very best of us taken away too Soon j v die death oflhese two men has so profoundly dis turbed me that I must write about this existential dilemma to move on Ijhe best material Ive read on this subject is i ffound in the little book The Will of God by Leslie Vt Weatherhead first published in 1944 in an to explain why so many young soldiers dymg in World War II Weatherhead divided f ihewUl of God into three parts 1 The intentional i vWl of God 2 The circumstantial will of God and The ultimate will of G6d Jv will of God is for all of us to V love joy and peace but because God has giv V en us free will and allowed evil to exist in our world and because God has established natural eyes of death daily become inarticulate when con fronted with the question Why do the good die young This question one of the great mysteries of life can be answered theologically Since Im seminarians are quick to poinldbt and because editors threaten pot to print

we react to these circum stances with faith and courage we can fulfill Gods Ultimate will fdrus 7peace in Him s God pours out goodness to us we love care for our children Just as God allows us to ke mistakes we allow our children to stumble when they learn to walk Because we want our children to be independent we dont do everything for them otherwise we would infantilise them Likewise God does not want wants us to choose to love Him This free will allows for rebellion The ultimate rebellious teenager to carry the analogy me distance is the devil When the devil is given freedom by God tragedy is bound to occur v A persons premature death is never Gods will Disease is the product of our inadequate knowl edge of healing and evils influence and should be battled with all our power but sometimesevil wins on this earth We find victory in death when we stand by the bedside and see peace joy and love reflected in the eyes of friends and family and are comforted by hope and fulfillment radiating from the soul of the dying The circumstances of sickness and death can often lead to the expression of good In our response to tragedy our hearts souls and minds can find peace John Walter
