1.03.2007    |    Now that's abuse
It is not hard to know which side the ACLU is on: they're more concerned that jihadi warriors not be offended than we obtain intelligence to prevent further deaths of Americans. What is puzzling, however, are the lengths to which our own government wastes our money investigating such concerns.

For reasons that should by now not need to be stated, any time some douchbag of an Islamist terrorist at Gitmo is "offended", it becomes front-page news in our mainstream media. Today's front-page story in the WaPo is typical. It relates, among other things,
FBI agents witnessed possible mistreatment of the Koran at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, including at least one instance in which an interrogator squatted over Islam's holy text in an apparent attempt to offend a captive, according to bureau documents released yesterday.

In October 2002, a Marine captain allegedly squatted over a copy of the Koran during intensive questioning of a Muslim prisoner, who was "incensed" by the tactic, according to an FBI agent.
So. Here we are, attempting to prevent these terrorists from killing us, from beheading our journalists, from mistreating women, from stoning homosexuals to death, and some of us are concerned that they become "incensed?" Boo. Hoo. They want to kill us; the ACLU doesn't want them to become upset.

As for the tactics using the "holy" Koran, well, that book is full of lies, and features, among other things, the command that infidels be converted or killed. Well, huff the multicultis, so too does the Bible. Look at all that smiting of those who a) don't follow God's commandments, or, b) get in the way of God's chosen people.

Perhaps this is so. But while Christians are told by Jesus to go forth and "baptize all nations," we are also told to pray for our enemies, not kill them. Killing aside, it gets into really foul abuse territory:
Some previously reported tactics mentioned in the new documents include wrapping a prisoner in an Israeli flag, subjecting others to extreme heat and cold, and aggressively using strobe lights on others.
Wrapping a prisoner in an Israeli flag. Oh, the humanity. This is wrong, wrong I say -- It demeans the flag of a staunch ally in the war on terror, and insults Jews.

But the ACLU doesn't give a rat's sphincter about that, now, do they?

About this site and the author

Welcome. My name is John Luke Rich, (very) struggling Christian. The focus here is Christianity in its many varieties, its fussing and feuding, how it impacts our lives and our society, with detours to consider it with other faiths (or lack thereof).

Call this blog my way of evangelizing on the internet.

Putting it differently, we're only here on this earth a short time. It's the rest of eternity that we should be most concerned about. Call it the care and feeding of our souls.

I was born Jewish, and born again in Christ Jesus over thirty years ago. First as a Roman Catholic; now a Calvinist by persuasion and a Baptist by denomination. But I'm hardly a poster boy for doctrinal rigidity.

I believe that Scripture is the rock on which all Christian churches must stand -- or sink if they are not so grounded. I believe that we are saved by faith, but hardly in a vacuum. That faith is a gift from God, through no agency on our part -- although we sometimes turn a deaf ear and choose to ignore God's knocking on the door.

To be Christian is to evangelize. Those who think it not their part to evangelize perhaps haven't truly understood what our Lord told us in Matthew 28. We must preach the Gospel as best we are able. Using words if necessary.

Though my faith waxes and wanes, it never seems to go away. Sometimes I wish it would, to give me some peace of mind. But then, Jesus never said that walking with Him was going to be easy...

Final note: I also blog as Jack Rich on cultural, political and other things over at Wrong Side of the Tracks

Thanks for stopping by.
