Catholics Against Capital Punishment. CACP was founded in January 1992 to promote greater awareness of Catholic Church teachings that characterize capital punishment as inappropriate and unacceptable in today's world. It does this in three ways: By communicating such teachings to federal and state lawmakers, especially those who are Catholic, urging them to oppose proposed legislation imposing or extending the use of the death penalty and to work for repeal of such laws currently on the books; By encouraging members of the Catholic hierarchy and clergy in the U. S. to speak out more forcefully against capital punishment; By mobilizing the support of the Catholic laity to achieve the above two goals
