The National Black Church Initiative said churchgoers are "morally outraged" at the "brutal" execution of convicted Ohio murderer Dennis McGuire, who last week choked for 10 minutes before dying following the injection of an untested combination of chemicals.
"The manner in which Ohio chose to experiment on this human being speaks to the baseless ethical character of Governor Kasich and his administration. The State of Ohio has committed murder without mercy. The universal Christian church loves all of God's children and believes wholeheartedly in mercy and forgiveness," said the Rev. Anothony Evans, president of NBCI, in a statement on Monday. NBCI says that it represents 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African-American churchgoers.
"Evil is the only appropriate word to describe the agonizing death of Mr. McGuire. We will not have any part of the State of Ohio brutally murdering God's children, though they will in the end have to answer to God." more >>
