So in last night’s Republican presidential debate (02-06-2016) the candidates tried to outdo each other on the use of torture tactics.
Trump promised to reintroduce the technique of waterboarding (and worse) if elected stating, “We have people chopping the heads off Christians, we have people chopping the heads off many other people,” said The Donald. “Not since medieval times have we seen what's going on. I would bring back waterboarding, and I would bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.”
Really? This is supposed to be the party Christians are obligated to vote for over the “Evil Liberals?” Listen to how this sounds: “I’m a Christian who supports torture!” That’s tantamount to saying, “I’m a Christian and a mass murderer and rapist!” In both instances you can either be one or the other, but not both. Let’s not forget that Jesus was brutally tortured during his crucifixion.
This is just another example, among hundreds, of the mass delusion that the Republican Party is “God’s Own Party.” If you composed a checklist of their policies compared to those of the Democratic Party you would be forced to conclude otherwise. Republicans look like “Satan’s Own Party” more than anything else.
It’s worth mentioning that Saudi Arabia, our ally, chops off heads on a frequent basis, it’s even codified into their laws.
