Death Row

Clemency for Quin

On September 19 in the book I published Daybook of My Personal Faith, the subject matter is the death penalty and the reasons I believe it should be abolished.

Last night at 10:30pm I wrote a letter to Governor Greg Abbott of Texas asking him to commute the sentence of Quintin Phillipe Jones who is currently set to be executed on May 19th.

This is an instance where the person to be executed admits that he did what he was charged with, and has deep regrets about that action, but he has turned himself around. Now he is asking to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Two things from the September 19 entry ring clear to me in this case: 1) the crime which he committed happened in 1999 and he is now a different person. 2) change is always possible and once the person has been executed society ends that possibility. In my belief system, God never gives up on anyone and asks me to do the same–not give up on that person’s ability to change.

There have been others who served out their life within prison walls and did good things with that time. I hope this man will get that opportunity.

Quintin Phillipe Jones will continue to be in my prayers. And I’ll spread the word urging people who feel as I do to write Governor Abbott. If you agree, I urge you to do the same.
