11.11.2009 Sniper John Allen Muhammad executed

CNN and all US American news channels have brought it almost live and in colour: the story of the execution of John A Muhammad. And it amazes me and saddens me again and again how people can celebrate the killing of another person and call it justice. It is so stupid and insane. Killing a human being is simply wrong and no argument of this world can make it right. Those in politics who support the death penalty are as sick as those who go on a killing spree, maybe even more as they kill after a long process of consideration covering years. Revenge is no criteria for the procedure within the criminal code or the justice system of a country.

Humanity has a lot to learn.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
