Rev Otis Moss Reflects on Troy Davis’ Execution

Over on Facebook, Rev. Otis Moss, of Trinity United Church of Christ, offered these words after hearing of Troy Davis’ execution:

The tragedy of our justice system is the uneven, discriminatory application of the punishment.

The evil of the death penalty is state sponsored death, supported and sponsored by known human imperfection.

The sin of our nation is our hubris in claiming Christianity in one hand and the religion of retaliation in the other.

The ignorance of our americanized faith is that we do not recognize our Savior was a death row inmate, executed unjustly for a crime He did not commit.

Lord Help us,

Then motivate us.

Amen
