Dr. D. James Kennedy once said "We shall be judged by the hanging judge, that is, the Judge who Himself hanged upon a tree to pay the penalty for our offense." He was referring to Jesus, of whom the Bible says took the penelty for sin on the cross (was 'hanged') AND will also be the judge of everyone (will 'hang' others). I was unsure if this would contribute to this article and how to properly cite my sources. Feel free to add this if you think it is revelent. Any comments?

Added "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts reference[edit]

The character was mentioned in the song's article, so I figured it was worthy of mention here. Mellesime 02:20, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Reference flag removal[edit]

The article has had the template complaining of no refernces for over a year. But the article itself is simply a definition and a disambiguation page, so I am removing the flag. Comments anyone? Lou I (talk) 07:13, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

William L. Walsh[edit]

Should be added to this list. he's on the front page of wiki as a hanging judge in the "Did you Know?" section.

Joaquim Barbosa[edit]

I see his description as a 'hanging judge' -- and I see little evidence of unusually-brutal judgment, and few death-penalty cases. So someone dislikes him for political reasons? Tough!

I instead expected Roland Freisler, President of the Nazi-era Volksgerichthof, who sentenced multitudes to death for offenses against the Nazi regime, many of those offenses not qualifying for the death penalty, and almost invariably as travesties of legal process. Most infamous among his victims were those connected to the July 20 plot -- most of whom were hanged on piano wire to maximize the agony of death.

Andrei Vishinsky, Stalin's legal butcher, would qualify except that his victims were usually shot. Pbrower2a (talk) 17:16, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
