To listen to the news as of late, you would think civilization itself hinges on whether or not we should waterboard terrorist detainees at Guantanamo Bay. It is THE dominant theme in American politics right now and virtually every liberal media outlet is being employed to help bring the practice to an end.
“Why must it be stopped?” you ask. According to the thinking of some of our more open-minded friends, waterboarding is a brutal form of Nazi-like torture. It is, so we’re told, a heinous act against our fellow man, and not only does irreversible harm to the mind and body, but it also enrages those who embrace the extremist Muslim viewpoint.
Ironically, many of the very people who want waterboarding brought to an end, endorse and promote the slaughter of innocent unborn children. It doesn’t take an Einstein to see the incredible inconsistency of this kind of carnal thinking.
Waterboarding causes temporary discomfort at the very worst. It causes no long-term, life-threatening health effects. It is simply an effective means of elicting vital security information from those who would destroy our nation.
Abortion, on the other hand, causes excruciating pain and actually kills the unborn child! Do a simple Google search on your home computer and read, if you can, how untold millions of babies are mutilated and butchered within their mother’s womb under the guise of “choice.” Study the documentation and look carefully at those atrocious photographs. Those are PEOPLE being burnt, and ravaged, and dismembered–all in the name of freedom and so-called “human rights.” Torture is an understatement!
How in the name of common sense can we say waterboarding a terrorist in prison is torture, but literally executing an unborn child is not (Proverbs 6:15-17)?! My college Greek professor used to have a word for that: baloney!
