Penance and Prayer, Prayer and Penance.....

In our persistent trod into the depths of the anti-human ways of death, our country is passing another milestone on the way to hell.

According to this article in the New York Times, legislation has been introduced in Congress, with the support of the President, to legalize interrogation techniques indistinguishable from torture, which our country has denounced as torture when Other People and Other Nations [such as China, Germany under Hitler, former Soviet Union....] have used them, and which even our own military repudiates and wants no part of. In addition, the legislation would define in law that the protections of the Geneva Convention have no application to any actual individual human being.

Penance and prayer [and a well-thought-out, polite letter to one's Members of Congress] are most definitely in order!
