Why do some many people from the USA think capital punishment is a good idea? I'll never understand why so-called Christian folk think it's right for the state to kill a person.

My opinion is that the society we live in is responsible for the idea of capital punishment more as a counter effect to its own doings .Just to take your example of the capital punishment in the US it has a lot to also do with the nature of crimes being committed and the frequency of them. Capital punishment is also provided for as a detterent, so that other people may not repeat it. From a moral point of view it is wrong to take the life of people whether it us as individuals or if it is the sate.

hi jakesmum capital punishment should never be the human way of dealing with the things. the punishment should be where the criminal suffers and not get liberated. here you are giving him the opportunity to get liberated..
