Torture – 8 March 2008
Part of this week’s NOW on PBS program was about torture – the
deliberate cruelty imposed on prisoners to force information out of
them. Watching this program made me wonder why any civilized person
would even consider such an option.
Surely, this great country of ours is taking a very serious step
backward that may have devastating repercussions worldwide. I wondered
what kind of an example we set when we stoop to the level of the enemy.
It is this sort of inconsistency in behavior that makes a nation and
those leaders who claim to be “Christians” appear hypocritical, to say
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
