Ray McGovern on torture

ray mcgovern has a thoughtful opinion piece on tompaine via alternet...
The next several days will show whether our Congress has slipped its moral moorings. Seldom have moral lines been so clearly drawn. The issue is whether American armed forces and intelligence personnel should be permitted or forbidden to torture detainees.


Yesterday, the president's own United Methodist Church's Board of Church and Society, in an almost unanimous vote, protested against the "unjust war in Iraq" and appealed for return of our troops. The Board also issued a strong statement against torture, urging Congress to create an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate detention and interrogation practices at Guantanamo, Iraq and Afghanistan.

you would think that a statement coming from his own church, for a self-proclaimed deeply religious man, would have some impact... well, wouldn't you...?
