    The governor of Missouri has issued a stay of execution for a death row inmate and appointed a panel to investigate his conviction. The order came only hours before Marcellus Williams, 48, was due to be put to death for the 1998 murder of Felicia Gayle, a newspaper reporter. "A sentence of death is the ultimate, permanent punishment," Governor Eric Greitens said in a statement. Lawyers for Williams say someone else's DNA is on the murder weapon. "To carry out the death penalty, the people of Missouri must have confidence in the judgment of guilt," wrote Governor Greitens. "In light...

    On Tuesday night, the US state of Missouri is planning to execute Marcellus Williams despite a new report from a DNA expert that his lawyers argue supports his claim to innocence. In 2001, Williams, who is now 48, was convicted of the 1998 killing of Lisha Gayle. But his lawyers say new DNA evidence could exonerate him. The Missouri Supreme Court, however, has refused to review that evidence. Williams' lawyer, Kent Gipson, has described the Supreme Court's decision as "baffling". "We petitioned the court to look at the new evidence on August 14th, and less than 24 hours later they...

    What continues to be left out are the facts that the camera footage was spliced. The blood type of Kendrick Johnson the 15 year old who was missing all the organs out of his body after second autopsy.

    On the Need to Be More Urgent in Preparing for Final Judgment Msgr. Charles Pope • May 1, 2016 • At every funeral I celebrate, I spend a good portion of the sermon urging everyone, including myself, to be more intent on preparing for death and judgement. I remind the assembled of Jesus’ numerous parables on this theme. I remind them that no one loves them more than does Jesus, and yet no one issued more warnings of judgment and Hell than He did. I do this at funerals because the overwhelming majority of people I see there do...
