torture-1You can rack the word anyway you want, torture is wrong.

And mean, vicious, inhumane techniques like forced enemas, confining a person with biting bugs, water boarding, and driving nails into a man’s hands and feet are torture.

If an enemy of our country commits torture against our forces or our allies that is a crime.

If we commit torture against our enemies, that is a crime.

Politicians and pundits will argue from now until the end of time about whether the torture we imposed on a few of the enemy combatants at Guantanamo resulted in any useful information. No one will win the argument.

I’ll stick with Jesus. What does it profit a man to gain the whole world if he loses his soul?
