The Oklahoma Department of Corrections botched the execution of convicted killer Clayton Lockett Tuesday night, claiming the execution didn't go as planned because of a blown vein.
It was determined he was sedated approximately seven minutes into the execution," DOC Director Robert Patton said. "At that time we began pushing the second and third drugs in the protocol. There was some concern at that time that the drugs were not having the effect, so the doctor observed the line and determined that the line had blown."The second drug in the protocol was vecuronium bromide, which is a paralytic used to stop Lockett's breathing. The third drug in the protocol was potassium chloride, which was used to stop Lockett's heart.Witnesses described a disturbing chain of events that followed. They said Lockett was not unconscious until 6:33, but at 6:36 they said Lockett became conscious again and was mumbling, his muscles tightened, his mouth opened and he was twitching. At 6:37 witnesses say Lockett said "something is wrong." Lockett continued mumbling and moving, even lifting his head and shoulders until 6:39, when DOC officials closed the blinds to keep witnesses from seeing any more.Using newspaper accounts and a database of all American executions, my collaborators and I recently completed the first comprehensive study of botched executions in the United States and documented the ways that different methods of execution go wrong. We examined every execution from 1890 to 2010 and found that no technology has been able to ensure that capital punishment would not, on occasion, become either a gruesome spectacle of suffering or a messy display of incompetence

Carl Childs' plea on FORGIVENESS. "Forgiveness emulates God's love for humanity, accepted payment of sins and God endorses you to enter Kingdom." Do you think your strength is in not forgiving the person? It is not! You can't hurt the person by refusing to forgive them. "You only block yourself from going into the Kingdom." You can be Saved and Speak in Tongues, having a unforgiving spirit, disqualifies you from entering the Kingdom! According to the Word it is required of all of us to be Forgiven by God, to be able to enter HIS Kingdom. Mark 2:7-11 (Wey) "Why does this man use such words?" they said; "He is blaspheming. Who can pardon sins but One--that is, God?"... Jesus asked them, "Which is easier?--to say to this paralytic, 'Your sins are pardoned,' or to say, 'Rise, take up your mat, and walk?' But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to pardon sins"--He turned to the paralytic, and said, "To you I say, 'Rise, take up your mat and go home. Mat 6:12 (TEB) "Forgive us the wrongs that we have done, as we forgive the wrongs others have done us." Luke 6:37 (NIV) "...Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Mat 6:14-15 (NIV) "For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But, if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Mat 9:1-8 NKJV1 So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own city.2 Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you."3 And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, "This Man blasphemes!"4 But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts?5 For which is easier, to say, '
Wednesdays on Following The Truth are dedicated to "The Signs", the miracles of Jesus. Join Catholic lay evangelist Gary Zimak as he discusses the Healing of the Paralytic Man as presented by Matthew, Mark and Luke. As with all of Our Lord's miracles, this one holds a powerful message for our lives. Want to know what it is? Don't miss this episode of Following The Truth!
Looking at the accounts of Jesus healing people, His compassion, His willingness, even initiating their healing in some cases...makes me want to fall on my knees as so many did before Him, and cry, "Holy". Yes, He is still the Holy Jesus today at this moment in your life. He is The Healing Jesus. Let's continue in Mark today and see Jesus heal the paralytic.
Conservative talk radio from the hub of Western Civilization. The trifecta of scandals plaguing President Obama and his administration will get a lot worse before they get better, casting a paralytic pall over his second term and greatly reducing the likelihood American voters will coronate Hillary Clinton as his successor.
As modern day Catholics, we sometimes fail to believe in miracles. Mistakenly thinking that "stuff like that doesn't happen anymore", we lose hope when faced with difficult situations. On this episode of Following The Truth, Catholic Evangelist Gary Zimak will discuss the Church approved apparition of Our Lady of the Guard. In 15th century Italy, the Blessed Mother appeared to a peasant named Benedict Pareto who ended up receiving a miraculous healing. In addition, Gary will read and discuss the gospel account of the healing of a paralytic, as told by St. Mark. If you are struggling to believe that God can perform miracles in your life, this show is a MUST-LISTEN!
There are two types of vaccine that protect against polio: inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) and oral polio vaccine (OPV). IPV, used in the United States since 2000, is given as an injection in the leg or arm, depending on patient's age. Polio vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines. Most people should get polio vaccine when they are children. Children get 4 doses of IPV, at these ages: 2 months, 4 months, 6-18 months, and booster dose at 4-6 years. OPV has not been used in the United States since 2000 but is still used in many parts of the world.
A person is considered to be fully immunized if he or she has received a primary series of at least three doses of inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV), live oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV), or four doses of any combination of IPV and OPV. Until recently, the benefits of OPV use (i.e. intestinal immunity, secondary spread) outweighed the risk for vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) which occurred in one child out of every 2.4 million OPV doses distributed. To eliminate the risk of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP), as of January 1, 2000, OPV was no longer recommended for routine immunization in the United States. However, OPV continues to be used in the countries where polio is endemic or the risk of importation and transmission is high. OPV is recommended for global polio eradication activities in polio-endemic countries due to its advantages over IPV in providing intestinal immunity and providing secondary spread of the vaccine to unprotected contacts.

Walking in the Kingdom in Bolivia continues in part 2 with stories from Bolivia and how the hand of God moved in the witches market and the Amazon jungle expedition and more. I further examine the passage from Mark 2:1-13 and talk about the four different groups that are present to hear Jesus preach, the paralytic, in need of Jesus; the crowd, in the way blocking a man from getting to Jesus; the religious, criticiing Jesus and the way things are done; and the four friends, who stop&
