Mark H. Creech Biography

Title:
Reverand & Executive Director of the Christian Action League of North Carolina, Inc
Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
Reasoning:

“If the death penalty is just retribution, which it is, then it should be administered. If the death penalty can never be administered by a flawless judicial system, which it cannot, then suspending executions to improve its administration will never make it more just.”
