Bobbo Loves the Torture!

Bobbo,

I imagine you spend a great deal of time in masturbatory glee at your presumed brilliance. But I find you to possess a vile little mind, filled with hatred and paranoia for anything you cannot understand.

First you you commit the intellectual sin of post hoc ergo propter hoc by making the spurious claim that torture has protected us from further terrorist attacks. Then you go on to justify the torture of prisoners at Guantanmo by claming its a great place to be! For good measure, you debase the American justice system by claiming that "slick" defense attorneys "like O.J. Simpson's" would be lining up to free Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

None of this compares the Grand Whopper of Ignorance you laid at the end of your bullshit parade! You all summed it all up by claiming that only Americans have rights protected by the U.S. Constitution.

What an amazing mixture of racism and ignorance you are Bob! The abuse you suffered at the hands of your father sure has lasting effects, doesn't it?

I'll try to be as plain as I can so even your feeble mind can understand: By your own admission our rights are granted to us by God. If God granted us our rights, did he grant them to everyone or just believers? If God granted rights to everyone, then the terror SUSPECTS are due the protections of the Constitution, right? Or does your God make exceptions for the scary brown people?

And if God only grants right to believers, then would you advocate the imprisonment and water boarding of atheists? Those mean, nasty atheists have the temerity to not be afraid of your mythical big scary man in the sky, so they deserve what they get, right?

Which is it Bob? Why don't you use you big brain to cut the Gordian knot of this little dilemma?

And while you're at it, why don't you do an in studio demonstration of water boarding? If it's not torture, a big strapping guy like you would have no trouble being water boarded, right? If you're too afraid of the demonstration, why don't you bring in one of your kids to be water boarded? If it's not torture, they won't be harmed, right?

Bobbo, you can redeem yourself by two simple acts: First, host an in studio demonstration that proves water boarding isn't torture, and, second, try practicing the compassion that Christ displayed.

Oh, my mistake, you don't believe Jesus of compassion. You believe in Jesus, Lord of War.

Yeah, even a good chunk of his supporters would have to know that comparing trying terrorists to trying OJ was over the top.

Hey Irl,

Are you interested in solving the "little dilemma" you brought up? If so, then I believe the first step would be to define what you mean by "rights". It is crucuial to your statement, "By your[Bob's] own admission our rights are granted to us by God". It depends on your definition of "rights" to say wether God has "granted" us rights. If rights cannot be taken away, then perhaps the only rights we have are the rights of free will and God's love for us.

It must have been five, or six monthes ago that I heard Bob and the effeminate sounding friday movie review guy critiquing the latest Rambo movie that I believe had just recently been released on DVD. Bob went to see Rambo(for research purpose's of course)
The thing I found somewhat disturbing about this so called christian was the delight, and glee in his voice as he described the methods, and number of bad guy's Rambo dispatches. Bob sounded absolutely giddy while describing Rambo's bloodletting.

Hey, IliveBcauseofJC, you're missing the bigger point:

Bob Dutko, a man who claims to defend Christianity, is defending the torture of human beings to extract a confession.

Does that sound Christian to you?

Hey djtyg,

I don't know if I would consider these water boardings that took place torture. I think a clear distinction is that, I assume, there was no sadistic or hateful intention for the few water boarding instances that took place and water boarding is almost entirely psychological and can't doing any physical damage other then what may or may not result from scaring the person. I think that it may be right to do this if it is based wholly on trying to save lots of peoples' lives and required to do so. Do you think God would not want us to water board a terrorist, *with no hateful intent and regretful of any harm we might cause him*, if it is thought to save the lives of a lot of people, or even just one person?
I do agree that if there was another way, that didn't involve having to scare them to get information, that it should be taken. Otherwise it seems somewhat sadistic or hateful to water board someone when there is another alternative.

When you point a finger at someone, notice how three fingers are pointing back at yourself?

Strange post to be observed here...it just appears you think American's "waterboarding" of our enemies is worse than our enemies beheading us? Just appears is all.

I'm not sure what your point is here. Bob Dutko spends quite a bit of time every day pointing fingers at liberals, democrats, evolutionists, secularists, and other people he doesn't like. This blog would not exist without his finger pointing.

It appears that you are reaching a conclusion that is not based in facts. Nobody has said, suggested, or even inferred that torture via waterboarding is worse than killing via beheading.

Nevertheless, this post is not about the behavior of our "enemies", but rather the behavior of agents of the U.S. government -- the government that represents you and me.

Jesus taught, "in everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 7:12) I interpret that as saying we shouldn't torture our "enemies" lest we also desire to be tortured. How do you interpret it?

Hey Jeff,

Honestly I would want an enemy country to water board me with no sadistic intent if it meant that some of their innocent civilians would be saved because of it.
