    Could you possibly in more insulting or ignorant of Christians?


    What I find most fascinating, is that those most likely to protest "torture" also tend to support abortion and are against the Death Penalty. Hang on, I'm making a point here.

    WARNGING the following contain: General rule here folks, if it doesn't apply to you personally, good for you.

    Which makes you wonder really, where the true face of evil is here.

    On one side, you have pro-life, pro-enhanced interrogation, pro-death penalty religious folks who believe innocent life trumps all.

    And the other side of the coin, those who believe that innocent life is expendable. Yeah, "it's just a lump of cells". Sure. "We cannot put him to death, what if he is innocent??" 2.21 recidivism rate of killers means 2.1 people will die. "we cannot torture people to get information that saves lives. That's immoral! It's better we do not torture and people die, at least our values will be intact!"


    All of you lefties that have your panties in a wad because W used some enhanced techniques to save possibly, yes even your life, innocent peoples lives... You people scare me. I mean that. You berate religious folks for supporting "torture" yet you ignore the reality of the world around you.

    You people claim you are better because you don't believe in religion, yet you cannot face the reality there are some REALLY nasty people out that WOULD saw your head off if they got their hands on you.

    And who dies to save your asses? Conservative religious folks tend to populate the Armed Forces. Didn't meet too many atheist while I served.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    What is more Christ-like then torture? Honestly come on now. Christ would be the one filling up a bucket of water and setting up the ironing board.

    You made more sense in one sentence than all the leftists combined on this thread.

    I actually knew a couple in my platoon the first week in boot camp. Strangely enough, after climbing Mount Motherf****r, they started reading the Bible and talking about getting baptized.

    It ticks me off when they go hop on their High Horses because "we, unlike you sky fairy, bible thumping, intolerant ignorant fools, believe that people have a right not to be tortured. See where religion leaves you now?"

    While they completely ignore the fact that there are really nasty SOB's out there that have one goal, convert us, or kill us. There is no other way, no third option.

    Yeah, KSM got water poured over his face 183 times. I bet he would have rather not gone through such. I bet it was damned scary, uncomfortable, and really unpleseant. To hear these lefties rant about the situation, you'd have thought we plucked this guy off the street, and he woke up being water boarded till he admitted what W and Co. wanted to hear.

    They ignore the fact that the enhanced interrogation was done under probably the most supervised, regulated and limited scope of any "torture" in the history of mankind.

    But that isn't good enough for them. Had Algore been President, and this occurred, they'd be lauding the "Gore, sadly necessary strenuous extraction of information done in the most humane manner ever in the history of man."

    But no, it's W, the "evil" President. So emotionally, they are incapable of stopping for even a moment and being honest. Is it lamentable that we had to do these things? Yeah. But it's not our fault, it's those that take up the mantle of "terrorist" and wish harm upon us that to blame.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Religious tend to support torture more often

    The analysis is based on a Pew Research Center survey of 742 American adults conducted April 14-21.
    It did not include analysis of groups other than white evangelicals
    742 is not representative nor accurate.
    This is BS.

    Religious, atheist, Communist, Capitalist, Catholic, Protestant, Islamist, barbarian, civilized....

    Have nothing to do with supporting torture. Supporting torture has more to do with the dark side of human nature itself.

    And, we can now add extreme religious bigotry to your profile. Very nice.
