    In his book Changing The Script devotes 1/3 of it to the issue of torture. And the other 2/3 to the Republican ideology of suppressing women and hording wealth.

    His book written for the lay person of "Faith" is an inditement of the Religous Right / Consertive / Republican ideology.

    Look around you and everyone you see is tainted with the shame brought about by Bush acting as leader to implement these destructive ideas.

    I think before we criticize Obama we have to address the brainwashing of the general public to deny that torture wrong both in terms of law and empathy.

    All I can say is direct your energy into educating the public about these issues. And, I'm recommending you read Pastor Dan's book.

    Don't toss Obama under bus until he refuses to act on the issue after millions of Americans stand up and say it is wrong.

    •  Sooo... you saying that Obama shouldn't LEAD? (0+ / 0-)

      On an issue as clear-cut, as black-and-white as torture is (morally and legally), Obama should not LEAD?... rather he should wait until the appropriate level of public support is there? Seriously?
