    If you strive to be like Jesus how could you possibly justify torture?

    Nice dodge JMAC. Here's a great idea with a Christian flavor--don't answer the rhetorical question. That shows your intellectual honesty here in public dialogue. Rationalize in your mind why Jesus would be neutral and silent about humans being tortured.

    Yeah, THAT'S the ticket!!

    I think that living by example is the best way to reach an atheist. But the believer sure doesn't when the believer adopts the devil's tactics as his own. That's not a catch phrase, nor slogan, nor dishonest. I think it's very important to anyone who claims to be Christian.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    By your posts here you condone torture, you rationalize it. And you dodge any honest discussion of the rhetorical WWJD. You defend the practice, following the lead of Cheney, Bush and Yoo and others.

    you think they are the enemy....Oh, and if Jesus was against any kind of defense, then tell us oh biblical scholar, why were at least some of his apostles armed?

    Keep dodging JMAC. It fits right in with your chosen position on the question of torture.

    Can't answer that simple question can you Henry? Seems you are not the biblical scholar you think yourself to be...Or i it that you saw an opening to use WWJD in a snarky little manner, and didn't think how you would look if pressed on it....My advice...Stick to Conspiracies....That's your forte.
