Father, Forgive Us

September 19, 2006

An innocent man was tortured. Canadian police misidentified a man, which led the U.S. to send him to Syria where he was tortured. Canadian officials are quite upset at the U.S. over the torturing of the man.

As Christians we must not be silent! The National Religious Campaign Against Torture reminds us that “Torture is a Moral Issue.” Meanwhile, the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America has issued a statement calling on people to take action against legislation in Congress that would water down current rules against torture and ignore part of the Geneva Convention. So, who’s up for singing “God Bless America”?
