Professor Emeritus at Ave Maria School of Law at the University of Notre Dame
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
"The only situations in which anyone ever has the moral right intentionally to kill anyone are the just war, capital punishment and a justified rebellion. But no one ever has the right intentionally to kill the innocent. The just war and capital punishment are decreed by the state, which derives its authority from God... The right to kill intentionally, therefore, can properly be asserted only by those responsible for the common good..."
"Showdown in Texas, The Pope vs. The Culture of Death," Catholic.net, Sep./Oct. 1998
