Clips From Friday: Rick Santorum on the death penalty; Karen Santorum opens up about the death of their infant son

On Friday Piers Morgan sat down with GOP candidate Rick Santorum and his family for an in-depth interview in South Carolina. Santorum expressed his view on family, marriage and his hard line take on issues such as the death penalty. "When there is certainty, that's the case that capital punishment can be used," Santorum said. "If there is not certainty, under the law, it shouldn't be used."

Later in the interview, Santorum's wife, Karen, and their children joined Piers to talk about the tragic loss of their infant son, Gabriel, and the public criticism they received when they decided to bring their son home to be buried.

Karen said "What I have to say to the people out there who have criticized us with how we dealt with that grief, I pray that they will never know the depth of the pain."

    I do not believe in the death penalty in any case. Man is not God. Man has no right to punish via the death penalty. A guilty man lives with God. I will never vote for any candidate who believes in the death penalty !

      I disagree. I will not vote for a politician who is oppose to the death penalty as he/she will condemn more innocent people to get murdered. Alexander Campbell, a theologian wrote: "Wars are either defensive or aggressive. But, in either point of view they are originated and conducted on the assumption that man has a right, for just cause, to take away the life of a man. For it needs no argument to convince anyone, however obtuse, that man cannot rightfully kill a thousand or a million of persons, if he cannot lawfully kill one!"

        I think you'll find, in comparing the murder rates in countries that had the death penalty vs. those that didn't (this probably needs to be done historically, because so very few First-ranking Nations today have it), that having the death penalty simply does not reduce the murder rate.

    Evidence, if it were needed, that politics should not be sullied with the distorted values propagated by a delusional belief system (of any designation). Those of faith should keep their nonsensical whims lifted from their big books of Fable, Falsehoods and Fairy Tales in the temples and leave the difficult stuff to the grown ups.
