“Heinous Crimes Deserve the Death Penalty”
Did she really say that? Yes.
It is the first question asked by the interviewer.
Someone ought to inform the bishops and priests of her shocking admission.
Here is what she said verbatim: click image to watch on YouTube.
In 2011, Sister Prejean was caught in a rare moment of uncharacteristic candor in a one-on-one interview caught on video.
HOST: “In your view could there ever be any crime that are so heinous enough to deserve death?”
PREJEAN: “Maybe there are crimes that are deserving of death. But the big moral question we have is who deserves to kill the person who did the crime?”
I can guarantee you that Sister Prejean has never admitted this at any of her thousands – yes, thousands – of public appearances advocating to abolish the death penalty over the last 3 decades. Someone ought to inform the bishops and priests of her shocking admission.
We are Catholics who support the death penalty.
