Full Gospel churches want death penalty for rapists
THE Jamaica Association of Full Gospel Churches (JAFGC) has joined in the condemnation of the actions of the men responsible for the rape of five females last week. President for the group, Bishop Rohan Edwards, has called on the Government to implement the death penalty for those who rape.
"If the men are wicked, they must not be around to keep destroying people," Bishop Edwards told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.
The JAFGC, which represents over 50 denominations in the island, said in a press statement: "As a nation, we must take a stand against such cruelty and we believe the perpetrators, when caught, should face the full consequence of the law for their actions. A strong message must be sent to all who would seek to disrupt the lives of our people."
The organisation reminded the nation that evil could only triumph when good men do nothing, and commended the various action groups who had expressed their outrage over the actions of the perpetrators.
