Angela Hommell is a heroine, to go on living after what she endured.

|| From Florida here,"Surviving serial killer's victim asks officials to stop his Thursday execution ||
"Angela Hommell, 56, a German native who lives in Colorado Springs, Colo., calls herself a rape survivor."

"What she believed was a friendly ride to work nearly turned deadly, she said, after the men took turns raping her while pointing a gun at her head, court documents state."

"Gore also pleaded guilty to murdering two woman and three girls in Indian River County between 1981 and 1983."

"I don't believe in the death penalty. I'm Roman Catholic and in Germany we think the death penalty is barbaric."

……I was "executioner of the Papal States between 1796 and 1865".

……I "carried out 516 executions".

……Ambrose, Augustine, Aquinas, Duns Scotus, The Holy See's Inquisition, The Roman Catechism, The Lateran Treaty of 1929 (-1969) &ct., &ct., &ct., all support my work. (just for a few examples).

……Oh yeah, and the Popes, e.g. Innocent III: "secular power can, without mortal sin, exercise judgement of blood"; Pius XII (-1958): "by his crime, he has already dispossessed himself of his right to life."

'"After I pulled out the gun, he was keeping the game going, that's when I told him 'Fred let's don't play anymore. Let's go ahead and do what we're going to do,' " Gore recalled during an October 1984 deposition.'

'"I believe if they (Gore and Waterfield) would have been prosecuted for the rape against me
they would have gone to jail and not be able to go on the *killing spree that they did."
[*Barbara Ann Byer and Angelica LaVallee, both 14.]'

And I believe that JFK is alive, the brain-damaged President being guarded in a mountain hideaway.
