    I didn't claim that they did.

    The difference between waterboarding and the death penalty is that some people think waterboarding is not torture. Even death penalty proponents don't argue that the death penalty doesn't involve somebody dying.

    Well, it was at a NRA gathering, should we have expected anything less than their undivided attention?

    Also, notice all those smart, well thought out arguments against Palin. LOL! She's not the one that looks like an idiot from those comments.
    So are you volunteering to be waterboarded then? I mean, it's not like it's torture or anything, right?

    Ever heard stories of people being executed who didn't exactly go quietly or according to plan? That's a lot like state sponsored torture, if you ask me.

    Don't expect me to let my political ideology get in the way of a common sense argument simply because you are willing to.

    If you have ever studied Christianity you will understand that one never compares sacraments for the sake of arguments. It is a sin to do so. Baptism is one of the 7 Sacraments.

    Sacrilege is the violation or injurious treatment of a sacred object or person. It can come in the form of irreverence to sacred persons, places, and things. When the sacrilegious offence is verbal, it is called blasphemy. In a less proper sense, any transgression against what is seen as the virtue of religion would be a sacrilege.

    Well, your parsing legal terms here. I have no doubt that waterboarding is "torturous" for anyone exposed to it. Do I believe it is or should be illegal for terrorists plotting to kill untold numbers of innocent people - no!

    A pig is actually a good analogy here--except not for Palin but for the leftists here whining like pigs over ever word she says. I don't particularly care for the woman and she is in no way qualified to be president, but that was a witty comment. Leftist would laugh it up had it been John Stewart who said it, but are morally outraged when Palin says it. Just hypocritical, leftist, partisan, faux outrage, nothing more.

    So what she said offends your religious beliefs? Or are you trying to tell others that they should be offended?
