Presidential Veto

Colom has vetoed the bill that would have restored the death penalty to Guatemala. Whilst senior figures in the Catholic Church have supported the Guatemalan President's decision, the evangelicals have reacted with some typically befuddled logic: Pastor Jorge H. López of the Christian Brotherhood of Guatemala for instance, notes that "God created us in his image and likeness and, therefore, anyone who destroys His image and likeness deserves the maximum possible punishment."
