This is considered bad by the correct thinkers everywhere, but is in fact a great check and balance on the judicial system of the state.
Wow I actually understood that.

I too think that Allen West is on the right track, but agree with others here that there is much more at play here. There is something that seems to make individual lives less precious to some cultures. I would say much of it hinges on the breakdown of the traditional family, except that when we look around the world, we see many family focused cultures that also hold life cheap. Maybe it is the white Protestant culture that is the aberration.

Might be, although the practical differences between Protestant and Catholic are rather negligible in this respect. The big "other's bodies piling up do not concern us overmuch" is drawn at the Pro/Cath vs. Orthodox borders in Europe. Given that plenty of other cultural stuff sees a huge discontinuity, I'm disinclined to write this on the semi-religious account.

I mean, most of black America is nominally protestant too.
