Hispanic Evangelicals Call for Change in Capital Punishment

Reverend Gabriel Salguero published an article in the Huffington Post outlining why he, as an evangelical, is concerned about capital punishment. Salguero discusses how a broad bipartisan coalition is rallying around criminal justice reform and addressing the death penalty’s many problems. He said, The close to 8 million Hispanic evangelicals who are deeply committed to a system of justice that ensures equal treatment for all are asking for a genuine transformation in this system. As the national dialogue around capital punishment continues to take shape our contribution is one framed out of our commitment to equality, justice and above all a Scriptural imperative to “do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly before our God.” This commitment is what compels us to call for a genuine transformation of the imperfect capital punishment system that we have before us.
