I suppose this isn't really an atheist topic but I find myself in a dilemma. As an atheist and a 'liberal' (and an apartheid era South African) I define myself as opposing capital punishment. But now, having lived in Australia for the past 30 years, and thus I suppose having an emotional involvement, I find myself fervently wishing and hoping for the execution of the Bali bombers. These little Islamic rats killed over 200 people for religious reasons. Ironically they are desperately trying to get a stay of execution. I would have thought they would welcome death as a means of attaining paradise and however many virgins this entails.
I love your show.
