sanctity of life
The Missionary Diocese of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, stands firmly for the sanctity of life. Therefore, the diocese will like to ask the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles that they show clemency towards Kelly Gissendaner (and towards all those who are on death row). While she committed a heinous act against her former husband, and while we are aware that she has caused tremendous grief towards his and her family, the Missionary Diocese of the Sacred Heart of Jesus believes that only God has the authority to give and take away life. For that reason, the diocese is in strong opposition to the death penalty and considers its practice to be equal to the crime Kelly Gissendaner committed.
