How does the Coptic Orthodox Church view Capital Punishment?
In your following answer on capital punishment http://www.suscopts.org/q&a/index.php?qid=32&catid=61 you stated that our Church isn't against capital punishment and mainly quoted the Old Testament in support of this. If the case is so, then what prevents us from using the other old testament punishments such as stoning the people who don't obey their parents (Deut 21:18-21), stoning adulterers (Deut 22:22), stoning people who have served other gods or things (Deut 17:2-5)? What about the other punishments in the Old Testament, why don't we follow them too?
Is it wrong as a Christian to support capital punishment?
