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.
