Adhering to our views that the death penalty is in all circumstances cruel and unusual punishment prohibited by the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments, Gregg v. Georgia, 428 U.S. 153, 227 (1976) (BRENNAN, J., dissenting); id., at 231 (MARSHALL, J., dissenting), we would grant petitioner's application for a stay of his execution.
