…they climb back in bed with all the torture apologists of the past decade since Trump *loves* torture and wants to do it even if it is worthless. That is what conservative “prolife” folk heroes like Fr. Peter West and Paul Ryan now stand for because Trump is who they now stand with. And, like it or not, prolifers always dance to the tune of the GOP, not the GOP to theirs. They will give this guy everything and he will them *nothing* in return.
Every attempt to excuse torture or pretend that certain forms of torture aren’t really torture is bunk. And the Church tells us that over and over.
