DATELINE MAY 11, 2017, THE FRANCISPHERE
Yeah, in your face. It's official.
The death penalty is a mortal sin. Yep. No ifs and or buts. Oh, did I mention the death penalty was a mortal sin? So knock off that murderous bunk and get over it.
Right here in "America," the official magazine of the smartest Churchmen in the world - our POPE is a Jesuit, after all - it says this:
"Pope Francis: the death penalty is a 'mortal sin' and 'inadmissible.'"
It's not even just a mortal sin but it's legally inadmissible!
Guess Bear was right all along huh? Because POPE FRANCIS said it. Infallibility baby.
Sit on a death penalty jury and vote for the death penalty? Going to Hell. Or you would be, if there was a Hell to go to that people actually went to.
Warden? You're definitely going to Hell.
Guys who push the buttons that that start the lethal injection process? Hell.
Legislators who vote for the death penalty? Hell. Voters who voted for them? Hell.
Judge? Hell. Bailiff? Hell. Court reporter? Maybe Hell - can't be sure.
You know who's not going to Hell? The guys all the people who are going to Hell executed!
Bear? Death Penalty Defense. NOT going to Hell. Prosecutors? You are so going to Hell. Deepest pit.
This will be the argument from now on. "Ladies and gentlemen, if you vote to send my client to the death chamber, you're sentencing yourself to Hell. It's official. But get this. First of all, you're for slavery. So that's strike number one. Then you're committing the mortal sin of death penalty which is so Hell.
"Oh, what was that? Objection, Hell Boy? Judge, did you really sustain that? A Higher Court just sentenced you to Hell. Contempt? Me? That's Hell, too. Sorry, Don't say I didn't tell you. Lucky LaRue the Ice Pick Nursery Killer and I are going to be eating pizza in Heaven, laughing at every last one of you in Hell. And it's going to be deep dish pizza, Chicago, style. As much as we want.
"What are you going to be eating? Hot gravel and washing it down with battery acid. Not as good as pizza, huh? That's why they call it Hell. Mortal sin."
