When the History of This Time is Finally WrittenOne of the lasting marks of shame will be that so very many Christians, including Catholics, were willing to prostitute themselves to Leviathan and cheer for torture and war crimes. Here, for instance is born-again Christian Fred Barnes telling us 10 Things Bush Got Right. #2: Torture (under the euphemism “enhanced interrogation” and playing all the usual definitional monkey puzzle trick to try to pretend that water-boarding is not torture while forgetting… Read more
