Oh what fun to have the President of the United States of America not only support torture but also, and outright, support military coups and dictators:
In a memo to the secretary of state dated Monday, Bush used his authority to exempt Pakistan from a law that restricts funding countries where the legitimate head of state was deposed by a military coup, as in Pakistan.The waiver, which Bush has approved every year since 2003, opens the way for the United States to provide about 300 million dollars this year to key “war on terror” ally Pakistan to boost its counter-terrorism operations.
How very pro-Democracy of him. How utterly American and patriotic to support military overthrow of legitimate governments and then give them money when they can do something for us. Aren’t you so damn proud to be American with Bush as our leader? To all you moral majority types, to all you good Christians who continue to support an administration that breaks the law, disregards human rights, and makes charity conditional upon forcing its own judgments upon those in need, I ask you: “. . . why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye?”
And they say that liberals are moral relativists? Any Christian who continues to support illegal, immoral, unethical, and evil actions needs to do a little soul-searching before charging anyone else with moral relativism.
