The Star Tribune, along with much of our culture seems to have forgotten thousands of years of history. In an article that reads like an editorial, Chuck Haga says, that "South Dakota executes a tricky life-death dance," by enforcing the death penalty and outlawing abortion.
Haga presumes his moral convictions upon his reader by drawing parallels between abortion and the death penalty. He clearly believes that those with a pro-life agenda concerning abortion are hypocrites for enforcing the death penalty.
Yet this is the history of our nation--which is rooted in Judeo-Christian morality. We all too quickly abandon the principles upon which this nation was founded.
