    Who are bloodthirsty assholes. While religion causes plenty of crap policy, I'm not sure we can pin the death penalty on them - China kills more folk than any other nation in the world.

      It's no accident that the States that have gotten rid of the death penalty in the last decade have

      1. A very high rate of "No Religion" (which isn't the same as 'Atheist', although they overlap)

      and/or

      1. Lots of Catholics

      Demographically, that's how you get there, in the US.
