Theologians Call for the Clemency of Execution

Today, March 2nd 2015, Kelly Gissendaner, a theology graduate from Candler School of Theology while in prison, will be executed by the State of Georgia. Mrs. Gissendaner was found guilty for her involvement in her husband’s stabbing death in 1997. In the following seventeen years Mrs. Gissendaner has gone through a remarkable transformation while in prison. Many police officers and clergy speak to this transformation in her application to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles.
