Governor Kasich of Ohio

Commute the death sentence of Donald Palmer

    1. Petition by

      Julie Przybysz

      Cincinnati, OH

Donald Palmer is scheduled to be executed by the State of Ohio on September 20th, 2012.

We deeply sympathize with the family and friends of Charles Sponhaltz and Steven Vargo but respectfully offer that another death will neither heal nor resolve this tragedy.

We petition Governor Kasich to commute Mr. Palmer's death sentence to life without parole.

      Why is tCorporate Stance on Capital Punishment

      United States Province

      Because we Adorers of the Blood of Christ believe that

       all life is sacred,

       capital punishment is an affront to the sacredness of life,

       capital punishment does not serve as a deterrent to criminal behavior,

       capital punishment does not heal the pain caused to the victim’s family, friends and others,

       capital punishment perpetuates the cycle of violence, and conversion is as possible through God’s goodness for the perpetrator of the crime as for any person,

      we endorse the abolishment of capital punishment in the States in which we live, the United States, and in the world and we commit ourselves to engage in activities that will seek to end the death penalty in those States where it is in effect and to work toward the goal of ending everywhere the option of the death penalty for criminal behavior.

      one death does not make up for another... it heals nothing, changes nothing, and if, sadly, it makes the family of the victim feel better, then there needs to be some healing there. the family will find out that there is hollow satisfaction in this action. the true punishment for taking a life is holding the other's life in suspension, captivity if you will, to give him a chance to repent and to use his remaining life to upleft others and to be life giving.

      taking another life will not change what has already happened. Choose life over death in all decisions.
