i'm grateful Obama released the torture memos

Although I have massive issues with Obama's stance on abortion, see details, there are things he does that I am grateful for. One of those things is his release of the previous administration's memos on torture. Torture is morally repugnant. On NPR this morning I heard an interview with an Bush administration official who circulated a memo condemning torture, but the administration responded by issuing a call to destroy all copies of the memo.

True or not, the world views us as a Christian nation. When we permit the use of torture, we prove, in their eyes, how deficient Christ is. It is not weak to stand on the principles of human rights and human dignity at all times. Lord forgive us.
