The Death Penalty for Rape
As far as it makes any sense to judge these things, I think that rape is worse than murder. I'm actually against the death penalty (not for any humanitarian reasons - I just would prefer that murderers suffer a lifetime of solitary confinement interspersed with the occasional beating rather than a quick and painless death), so my take on convicted rapists is that they should all be castrated (seriously). Still, I suppose this ruling is a good first step.
