Bishop Loverde issued a joint statement with Bishop DiLorenzo of the Diocese of Richmond on the death penalty which will be published in The Arlington Catholic Herald on May 7 and The Catholic Virginian on May 11. The Bishops write that they want to shift the conversation from who should be executed or how to execute them to why the death penalty is still being applied in a society that has other adequate means to protect itself without taking a human life.
They exhort Catholics to fully embrace the “culture of life,” which affirms the sanctity of the unborn, the poor and vulnerable, immigrants and refugees, and even the “least lovable” members of society, those convicted of committing heinous crimes.
The Bishops’ statement provides timely teaching in the wake of three recent events: failed VA legislation that sought to allow compounding pharmacies to mix execution drugs in secret; last week’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court about Oklahoma’s lethal injection protocol; and a letter issued in March by Pope Francis noting there is no humane way to take a human life and repeating the call to end the use of the death penalty.
