The United States has voted against a resolution in the UN Human Rights Council condemning the death penalty for "same-sex relations." 
 
Every country on the UN Council from Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the “Western Europe and others group,” voted for the measure except Cuba, which abstained – and the U.S., led by Nikki Haley, which voted no.
 
Our society’s acceptance of the death penalty is the taproot of our racist, error-prone, and expensive criminal justice system at large. America’s faith communities need to speak loud and clear that the death penalty has no place in a society grounded in seeking restoration and healing.
