Because christians dont kill

Christianity is based on the the idea that jesus came to save sinners- you can not kill someone.

jesus banned retribution when he said and 'eye for eye; is wrong.

christianity teaches that human life is sarced and god can take it away

if abortion is wrong then the deaht penalty must be wrong

most of the christians churched have condemned capital punishment.
