Jenn’s Sunday Sermon
Posting early for reasons explained in Sunday Sermon – Part 2.
I want to urge everyone who reads this to visit Bloggers Against Torture and pass the word along to friends. If you're a blogger, join us and be a part of the movement. At my last count, 168 blogs have joined the effort to stop torture around the world.
Regardless of your opinions on the Iraq war, or your opinions on the Bush administration, whether you're red or blue, hawk or dove, Christian or atheist or Jew or Hindu or Pagan – we all have to raise our voices and stop the use of torture by our government and governments around the world.
Torture is wrong.
It violates against every moral and religious principle. It violates every person's right to humane treatment. Allowing our government to continue the use of torture – in our name – demeans every word of our Declaration of Independence, our Bill of Rights, our Constitution. Using torture makes us no better than any two-bit Third-World dictatorship.
If you are a person of faith, join the National Religious Campaign Against Torture!!
