I'm such a sap. I had a feeling of great joy when I read this... and then I also wanted to cry (I didn't cry, however). It's amazing how much he loves us. So amazing. I believe you're right. If only one person was here on Earth, if His death could allow him to have eternal life with Him and The Father, then yes. I believe He would die for the sake of that one person.

Hey are you sure you've read all the pages of the bible? Jesus came back to life didn't he?

The Bible mentions Hanukkah and Passover, not Christmas and Easter. Those are both Pagan holidays, thus why the supermajority of Christians don't celebrate it.

And where in the Bible does it say that Easter, is the holiday in which we are supposed to celebrate the rising of the Messiah? Nowhere. It talks about Passover, not Easter. In Acts, it mentions the word Easter once, and that's translated to Thanksgiving. The whole Christianity religion was created due to Jesus, as was the Jewish religion.

Christmas and Easter are both Pagan holidays. Pagans would take the blood of the babies and paint the Easter eggs; the Christmas tree represents a male part

christians are not technically jewish because Jesus was jewish. Christians have the bible and Jews have the Torah. they are different religions. most holidays like christmas and halloween were based off of pagan traditions

You can look anywhere online, and Easter was created by Pagans, not Christians. Christians are technically Jewish, since not only Jesus was Jewish, but the Jewish religion created the branch of Christianity.

Not once does it mention Easter in the Bible. Passover? Yes. But not Easter.

passover is part of Jewish religion. Easter is when Jesus rose from the grave

*sigh* Easter is NOT a Christian holiday! Yes, we celebrate Jesus dying on the cross, but that's called PASSOVER! EASTER is a PAGAN holiday!

I believe that it depends on the kind of person and what their crime is. I would feel a lot safer if a person who was a serial killer wasn't around anymore. Again, the Anders Breivik case is a great example of a country treating a mass murderer like a human being rather than a monster (after all, we are a little bit old to be believing in monsters).  So...after reading up on him, I'm very surprised.  He was the Taliban's Taliban.  But he's twisted. He should not of been deemed sane. He should be spending the rest of his days in Solitary Confinement.  Would locking this man in a small space and letting his mind corrode even further really service anyone? Would you or I actually be better off? Do you think the victims' families will be safer at night knowing we've crushed the psyche of a murderer?  Being in prison is good enough, and he'll stay in prison as long as he's a threat, I see no reason that we need to torture him (and that is exactly what indefinite solitary confinement is), other than to satisfy our primal desires. This is why I consider this such a progressive decision. Treating even mass murderers like human beings who still have potential value is progress.  Crushing his psyche is more humane then killing the man. And at this point, he's not going to be much good to society.  Not every psychopathic murderer can come back to be a good citizen. Should he get a shrink? Of course. But if he's deemed "broken beyond repair" I don't see why we should let him be among others, so that he can either be martyr'd for his beliefs in jail or kill a Muslim who is in the prison, or spread his message to to others.  The compromise is that we need to have a volley of psychological tests to determine if they could be fixed (And yes, i know it's not that simple...but its better then letting EVERY SINGLE PSYCHOPATH in a regular prison) and use those tests to place them either in a regular prison, or have a makeshift Arkham Asylum, or solitary confinement.  I think you're confusing high-security and solitary confinement. There is absolutely no reason to keep anybody in solitary confinement indefinitely. We do not need to kill him, or crush his psyche, we have other options. IF he is still deemed unsafe, they can deal with him as they see fit. Obviously if he presents an active danger to other inmates, he should be kept away, but I seriously question the idea that we should preemptively punish him for things he hasn't actually done yet. I don't disagree that it's a case-by-case basis, obviously not every murderer can be reintegrated into society, but if there's even one, don't you think we should give him that opportunity? I think we should start by assuming that every one can be rehabilitated (which obviously won't happen), and then narrow it down from there, not the other way around. Prison is not about making people uncomfortable, it should be about keeping society safe, and about reintegrating violent criminals into a safe society.
