    So your God wishes us to share love of Christ by torturing people?

    No, but he wants us to share the love of Christ by protecting the innocent and punishing the wicked. I don't believe God would want the innocent to die because we aren't willing to make a wicked terrorist uncomfortable to the point of giving life saving information.

    Right, like I said to begin with, its the Christian thing to do. God will be pleased!

    I thought you were making reference to what the "Christian" militant group was doing. My bad.

    However, I believe God would be more pleased if the captured terrorist repented and gave the information freely instead of having it forced out of him.

    But if they don't, God would want us to torture them? Yes, I think I remember reading that.

    Torture has always been a crime. Waterboarding is torture. That is untill Dick Chaney decided he ant his fellow republicans were above the law. Let a democrat try breaking the law like republicans do and see how long they git by with it. And the republicans call themselves the "moral christian party". I thought Christians were supposed to believe we were all brothers, not just US citizens. Did Got make foreign terrorists so republican "Christians" would have someone to torture and hate?

    No, I don't think they should be waterboarded. Studies have shown that trying to coerce answers out of people rarely results in useful information.
