The Republican Party is supposed to be home to a lot of Christians and that might be true. Judging by the view of most Republicans, however, the Party doesn't appear to contain very many Christ-like people. It is hard to imagine Jesus Christ waterboarding someone while sermonizing on turning the other cheek, or loving thy neighbor, or doing unto others as you'd have them do unto you.
And yet, a lot of Republicans, Christian Conservative Republicans, are vocal supporters of torture.
He isn't just any old Christian; Pat's a Christian Pastor ... that's like being Christian-squared. And Robertson supports Rudy Giuliani, who enthusiastically defends the use of torture. Both men are quick to rationalize their bizarre backing of torture by employing the "Terrorists torture so we should too," defense.
And Bill O'Reilly wonders aloud why so many people are "bashing" Christians. Is it so much to ask that people live up to the standards established in the very book they try and swat other folks with?
