Catholics oppose death penalty; Eugene's shot at episcopacy declines further
By Tom Smith

More US Catholics oppose death penalty than ever before.

Which reminds me of a joke (yes, I stole it from Flight of the Phoenix -- but it bears repeating.)

A priest and a rabbi were watching a boxing match. One of the fighters stepped into the ring, swung his arms around to warm up, and then quickly crossed himself. The rabbi turned to the priest and said, "Father, what does that mean?" The priest said, "If he can't box, not a damn thing."
