public execution targets a creature

can shielded passage prevent it?
no, destruction is not damage

Faith's Shield would help, since Protection stops targetting

Faith's Shield (and any effect that causes relevant-protection, hexproof, shroud, or causes the targetted creature to blink out or otherwise not be there at resolution time) would cause the spell to be countered on resolution - it wouldn't do anything at all.  Your other creatures would not get -2/-0 - the entire spell was countered by the game rules for losing all of its targets (all one of them).

 If the creature is instead made Indestructible, or made to regenerate... either one of those will save your creature.  But the spell did resolve, and all your other creatures do get -2/-0.
