Catholic Governor of Nebraska Will Ignore Papal Opinion on Capital Punishment
Edit: canon law 915 will be invoked in 1 ...2....3... It’s doubtful the local ordinary will do anything about this, but maybe the pope will get involved. Remember all that concern about episcopal jurisdiction?
Anyway, if you don’t enforce a law, what good is it?
[Kearney Hub] Ten days before the State of Nebraska is set to hold an execution — its first in 21 years — protesters took their message to the Omaha church where Gov. Pete Ricketts worships.
About 40 people gathered Sunday morning outside St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church. With its 6116 Dodge St. address, the midtown church also offered protesters high visibility.
Protesters waved signs that said “No Executions” and “Who Would Jesus Kill?” and questioned the governor’s Catholic faith. One waved a picture of Pope Francis above the words “I SAID NO!” in reference to the Vatican’s recent announcement that the death penalty is now completely unacceptable.
