Why would anyone ask this question: Is Knoxville’s Billy Ray Irick too impaired to be executed?

The Gannett News Organization and Knox News are asking that question by following those that believe that salvation on Earth is possible……. they have forgotten that salvation is not in their hands and never was. Matthew 19: 21 Jesus said unto him,If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast,and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.  22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had* great possessions.  23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples,Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.  24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.  25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?  26 But Jesus beheld them, […]

I criticize the paper for what they don’t report, but I think that may be a function of being understaffed rather than bias.
