Death Penalty in Christianity in USA
The death penalty remains a source of contentious public debate in the United States. Nonetheless, public opinion polls in the US have shown that support for the death penalty has been as high as 80% and hardly ever as low as fifty percent, though for a brief moment in the 1960s it fell below the fiftieth percentile. Presently, public opinion polls show that 67% of the American citizens support the death penalty, although that figure drops to 53% when the alternative of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole is presented as an alternative (Gudorf, 2013, Pp 101).
Generally, Christian viewpoint reflects the New Testament idea that Christ’s message was one of grace, deliverance, and pardon. Accordingly, these works explain the historical changes in the Christian perspective (Christian churches have not always been as opposed to the death penalty as they currently are, although even now not all Christian churches stand opposed) as well as the reasons why the death penalty is inconsistent with Christianity. Death punishment is still legal in 38 states and in the Christian religion since individuals do not realize all of these facts when they think about carrying out a criminal. Most death sentence opponents suppose that if America reintroduces public execution capital punishment would be put to an end shortly after. The most important difference between the Christian argument for capital punishment and the Christian argument against it is that the current stand of most branches of Christianity is that the death punishment is immoral and this follows several examples from the Bible.
Death Penalty in Islam in Middle East
The Middle East has a system of criminal justice that is founded on a strict and factual form of Sharia law reflecting a specific state-sanctioned understanding of Islam. Sharia governs most democracies in the Middle East and the death penalty is highly protected and upheld by the same sharia. All the Islamic countries in the Middle East consider death sentence according to the ideologies that are personified in their religious book, Koran. The Islamic law performs on the belief that all individuals have a right to life except the direction of Islamic law decides otherwise (DiPuccio, 2015).
The death sentence can be carried out for a series of offences for instance rape, sacrilege, infidelity, armed robbery, false prophesy, apostasy, sorcery and murder. The execution can be executed through beheading using a blade, firing squad, and at times by stoning. Apostasy for instance will call for death penalty from Sunnah perspective but ahadith argue that punishment will be the act of Allah on the Day of Judgment (O’Sullivan, 2001, Pp 63). The Islam nation’s judiciary can compel the death sentence based on the three groups of criminal offence in the Sharia law:
• Hudud: rigid Quranic sentence for a particular crime and crimes that can lead to the death punishment comprise sodomy, apostasy, and adultery.
• Qisas: this is an eye-for-an-eye castigatory punishment and comprises murder.
• Tazir: A universal group, comprises crimes defined by national regulations, several of which can be disciplined by death, for instance drug trafficking.
Discrimination in Christianity in USA
Attending church evidently influences individuals to value Christianity more, and to embrace a lower attitude of other religions in US. Christianity opposes capital penalty since they believe it is unfair. In US, the Christian faith is against discrimination and states that every human being is equal before God and that were all formed in the God’s image. It should be well known that much of the proof for discrimination is incidental in the US. The government of US has formulated a policy that eliminates discrimination either in form of race, gender, and religion but there are some significant levels of discrimination (Gudorf, 2013, Pp 104).
Additionally, one must admit that a number of discrimination takes place in the structures of criminal justice but is against the Christian faiths in the US. Discrimination takes place not only based on race, but also based on wealth and this is not the same within the Christian doctrine. Rich defendants can employ a cream of legal expert to defend themselves, while the deprived defendants must rely on a court- appointed public attorney hence leading to discrimination and unfair judgment. Even if we acknowledge that there is some evidence of discrimination in the criminal justice system, does it likewise hold that there is discrimination with regard to capital punishment?
Discrimination in Islam in Middle East
The Middle East is dominated immensely by the Islamic religion govern by sharia. The law is categorically clears that every member of the community are equal and should be treated equally though in reality this is not so. The Qur’an became obvious that the chaste Islam religion itself is not in opposition to gender parity and it even provided lots of spaces to women. It is evident that most of the current practices in Muslim world are not because of the religion, but because of colonial, historical, and economic factors (Religious tolerance, 2015).
On top of that, throughout the past, male scholars have interpreted every verse of Qur’an and so everything was decided in favor of men. As a result, it can boldly be argued that gender parity is possible in Islamic countries. The UAE government is against the discrimination of its citizen in terms of ethnicity or race. The criminal justice in the Middle East is not influenced by discrimination since Sharia law is very strict against discrimination.
