On April 14, 2017, members of the New Millennium Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, gathered outside of Arkansas’s Governor’s Mansion to protest capital punishment. The mansion’s resident, Governor Asa Hutchinson, had recently scheduled eight executions for the month of April. Two members of the congregation held signs reading, “Other states are trying to abolish the death penalty[,] mine’s putting it on express lane.” New Millennium Church’s lead minister Wendell Griffen lay on a cot in front of his parishioners to symbolize the use of capital punishment on Jesus Christ.
