The last month has seen a lot of Catholic commentary on the question of capital punishment, including by CatholicVote’s own Tom Hoopes (see here). For those who are interested, here is a round-up of some of the statements that have been made, divided by the position taken on the question.
Against capital punishment:
- Joint editorial of America, National Catholic Register, National Catholic Reporter, and Our Sunday Visitor.
- Editorial at Patheos

In defense of capital punishment:
- Blog post by canon lawyer Ed Peters.
- Blog post by philosopher Ed Feser (including Feser’s own round-up of links to other articles).
