The current state of the law regarding capital punishment is that each state is allowed to create its own death penalty statutes and implement the death penalty basically as it chooses. The Supreme Court in Coker v. Georgia did limit the implementation of the death penalty to only apply to the crime of murder and not any other offense such as rape. Currently, 15 American states have partially or completely outlawed the death penalty including Michigan, Alaska, Hawaii, Wisconsin, Maine, California
Martin Luther, born in 1483, grew up in a devout Roman Catholic household, where the church stood at the center of his world. However, he suffered at the hand of his parents’ harsh criticism. His father had emerged from the feudal system into the new middle class as a successful Coppersmith. His desire was for his son to also climb the social ladder. To assist with his son’s success, Luther’s father was a fierce judge of the character of his son, and often punished him severely for his failures.
