FLORIDA BISHOPS URGE LEGISLATORS TO REJECT DEATH PENALTY
    MIAMI, 31 (NE) The bishops of Florida, among them Archbishop John Favalora of Miami, have recently exhorted the legislators from this state to oppose the proposals of legal changes that search to accelerate the process previous to the capital punishment. The governor of Florida and other legislative leaders will present these changes in the first days of January, at a special session of the Senate to handle the theme of death penalty. The bishops of Florida sent their letters to each of the senators and representatives, explaining their objections to these proposals and reiterating their opposition to death penalty itself. "It is a frightening prospect that we would wrongfully kill an innocent person because an expedited appeal precluded critical information from being considered," stated the Bishops regarding the proposal of the acceleration of the process.
