    They will have to investigate the current admin as he reserves the right to use the same methods.

    So be it. I don't have a problem with that. And while they're at it they can investigate our government's involvement.

    But the democrat involvement means there won't be any investigation. Christians wouldn't let one side off the hook, and demand justice for the other side.

    Did you notice the people who signed this document and the organizations represented? It speaks volumes as to the nature and intent of these "Chrisitians."

    I guess we can all relax now because surely those nice Muslim people would not torture us just because we follow Jesus, would they??

    :rolleyes: :eek:

    Christians should be governed by Muslim morality?

    Is sleep deprivation torture? Is water boarding (that makes you feel like you are drowning) torture?

    To me, Torture is the dentist chair especially if you are not numb yet.

    Torture is achieved when you leave the victim maimed and crippled. Putting a person under pressure to get information is not in and of itself torture.

    Now if I were king of the world and I was the one to have to deal with these Muslim types, I would be giving them the Gospel message 24/7. Once conversion was seen, the new convert would have repented of his false religion and spill his/her guts (open his/her heart) and confess all that was happening or about to happen. That is if I were king. :rolleyes:

    No, let's level the 'playing field'. An "eye for an eye", and all that.

    Yes, He really went around using that 'literal' sword during His earthly ministry, didn't He? I have a sword in my bedside drawer. It's called the Holy Bible, and none of the Gospel accounts therein have the Story of Jesus Running People Through with a Sword.
