Kevin Flannery S.J. on capital punishment

I think Father Kevin Flannery's article on capital punishment is well worth reading. Here. He discusses problems with the explantion of the teaching on capital punishment in Evangelium Vitae and in the Catechism. In particular, he explains the errors in discussing capital punishment as analogous to personal self-defense and as resting on the principle of double effect.
