Chronical - Crisis of the Church: Capital Punishment Now Against the Faith
Not certain how this will get fixed but it is definitely one for the Chronicle.

Of course, this will create significant issues for modern Catholics who are trying to adhere to the truths of the Faith.
Let's list the problems with this perspective:
- Doctrine does not equate with 'modern necessity'.
- This is a natural progression.
Dr. Kwasniewski and Mr. Ferrara offer some interesting insights to this latest step in the crisis.
Here is the key component of the new 'teaching':
Consequently, the Church teaches, in the light of the Gospel, that “the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person,” and she works with determination for its abolition worldwide.The inviolability and dignity of the person is now the supreme rule of the Catholic Church.
This makes sense, it follows from the human centric Novus Ordo, that took its cue from the protestants.
I hope that some people will draw the proper conclusions that this is simply yet one of many such milestones of this crisis - such as the approval of altar girls etc.
