Archbishop Coakley shares his story of faithPodcast
by Archbishop Paul Coakley
Archbishop Paul Coakley was raised in a Catholic family. But when he went to college, his life soon went adrift. Last month, our archbishop spoke at a conference in Minnesota, where he told the very personal and compelling story of how the Lord gradually led him back. (It may take a few minutes to load.)

The death penalty is morally obsolete

Archbishop Paul S. Coakley

 In April, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case out of Oklahoma (Glossip v. Gross) that challenges the widely used lethal injection protocol in carrying out the death penalty. This comes a year after the high profile flawed execution of convicted killer Clayton Lockett. At that time, I called for a reexamination of the use of the death penalty in our state and a moratorium that might lead ultimately to its abolition.

 I want to reaffirm my opposition to the use of the death penalty and call upon Catholics, and all people of Oklahoma, to work together toward the abolition of the death penalty in our state. Let us pray together that the court’s review will lead to a recognition that this form of institutionalized violence against persons is not in the best interest of the state, and is ultimately harmful to society because it further erodes respect for the dignity of the human person.

La pena de muerte está moralmente obsoleta

Arzobispo Pablo S. Coakley

  En abril, el Tribunal Supremo de Estados Unidos escuchará argumentos en un caso de Oklahoma (Glossip v. Gross) que pone a prueba el protocolo de inyección letal utilizado ampliamente en la ejecución de la pena de muerte. Esto viene un año después de la ejecución fallida del asesino convicto Clayton Lockett. En ese momento hice un llamado para un nuevo examen de la aplicación de la pena de muerte en nuestro estado y una moratoria que podría conducir en última instancia a su abolición.

 Quiero reafirmar mi oposición al uso de la pena de muerte y el llamamiento a los católicos y a todas las personas de Oklahoma para trabajar juntos hacia la abolición de la pena de muerte en nuestro estado. Oremos juntos para que el examen del Tribunal de lugar a un reconocimiento de que esta forma de violencia institucionalizada contra las personas no está en el mejor interés del Estado, y es en última instancia perjudicial para la sociedad, ya que erosiona aún más el respeto a la dignidad de la persona humana.
