If a Buddhist commits a capital crime should they be frozen for all eternity instead of being executed?

no... because if they commit a capital crime that is obviously very bad karma, which would lead to a crappy next life. also, they wouldnt have enough time to build up enough good karma to let them have a neutral next life...

no, just shoot their asses

well put, tweak. and kinky, again, shut up.

lol... interesting idea, bored. However, tweak is right, their bad karma will lead to a sucky next life and they will never reach nirvana.

But they will just be releasd into a new life to do it all over again.

And they might get sharp teeth and stuff.

In today's world, there is no way to freeze a person without killing him/her. Besides, just because a person believes in reincarnation, doesn't mean that's what actually happens when you die. Or do you just want to deprive him the pleasure of smiling at his executors and saying "Ha Ha, I will be back you bastards. Maybe I will come back as a duck or a snail, but I will be back!!!"

what they had done would eventually get to them if they were frozen, plus we don't have the right to take their life just as they don't have the right to commit a capital crime like murder.

How about that priest who was very happy to be killed?

This goes for a lot of religions. Killing them is what they want.

Clever question.

Whose to say that capital crimes are always bad karma anyway?

i don't think anyone should be executed.

buddhist or not.

Whether you freeze them or not they are still dead.. If anything I would try burning them in hopes that the flames would cleanse their souls.

no, they'll fall down the reincarnation chain.

Uh, could we try not to ask callous questions about religions we don't really understand. If your Buddhist, though, it's OK

It doesn't even make sense, they wouldn't even be buddhist if they commit any sort of crime. You have to know about buddhism, and it just doesn't make sense.

if youre going to "freeze them for all of eternity"...are you just going to keep them cold and expect them to live forever?
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 1/21/04 - 9:17:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
Quite an amusing question. Go you!
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 1/21/04 - 9:23:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
There could be a Buddhist murderer. Just not a very good Buddhist.

The three classes of man, you know?
