An article from Sojourners

Jim Wallis interviews Richard Viguerie, who “has been involved from the radical edges of the Right in every Republican campaign from Goldwater to Romney; he’s been called the “funding father of the conservative movement.” He helped start hundreds of entities from Conservative Digest to Gun Owners of America, from the National Conservative Political Action Committee to the Moral Majority—spanning the political spectrum from Right to Far Right.”

Frodo adds, “He deserves death.” Gandalf replies, “Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. I have not much hope that Gollum can be cured before he dies, but there is a chance of it.”
