Roger Ebert: God isn’t going to change his mind

—-Roger Ebert.

Roger Ebert: Capital punishment

“The ability of so many people to live comfortably with the idea of capital punishment is perhaps a clue to how so many Europeans were able to live with the idea of the Holocaust: Once you accept the notion that the state has the right to kill someone and the right to define what is a capital crime, aren’t you halfway there?”

—-Roger Ebert, film-critic (18 Jun 1942-2013).
