Another Fart in Church

...And this one over a truly serious matter of who and what we are as a country.

From Editor & Publisher:

Most Americans believe that U.S. troops or officials have tortured prisoners in Iraq or other countries, and oppose the practice, even if it helps gain information on possible terrorist attacks, the Gallup Organization announced today in releasing poll results.

The survey found that 74% believe the U.S. has tortured prisoners, with 20% disagreeing--with storng majorities of both Democrats and Republicans holding that view.

Asked if they would be willing to have the U.S. torture suspected terrorists "if they may know details about future terrorist attacks against the U.S.," 56% said no, vs. 38% saying yes. The party gap is bigger here, with only 27% of Democrats signing off on torture in that case, vs. 51% of Republicans.

Gallup pointed out that while President Bush recently said, "We do not torture," most Americans "think otherwise."

There is no logical argument justifying the morality of torture -- especially from an idiot who thinks he is ordained by the "Almighty".

Meanwhile, there is always that paragon of right-wing morality, Newsmax, which has taken the position that since John McCain cracked under torture, it must be alright.
It really is, perhaps, the most loathesome thing I've ever read. So disgusting in fact that no one put their name on it. The fact that McCain's torture caused him to give bullshit responses that were completely worthless or fabricated as a result of torture is completely missed by the author.

No the only point is that torture makes the idiots at NewsMax get a big ol' boner (well, a boner).
