i'll never understand Christian's like Santorum. He rails against the evils of birth control while actively promoting torture. He's a catholic and the Catholic Church has a clear stance against torture. This is from the Catechism:
"Torture which uses physical or moral violence to extract confessions, punish the guilty, frighten opponents, or satisfy hatred is contrary to respect for the person and for human dignity... Non-combatants, wounded soldiers, and prisoners must be respected and treated humanely. Actions deliberately contrary to the law of nations and to its universal principles are crimes, as are the orders that command such actions. "
Santorum famously called out McCain saying that McCain didn't understand our torture techniques.
Santorum: [McCain] doesn’t understand how enhanced interrogation works. I mean, you break somebody, and after they’re broken, they become cooperative.
And here are the techniques he was talking about
Using dogs to terrorize prisoners; stripping detainees naked and hooding them; isolating people in windowless cells for weeks and even months on end; freezing prisoners to near-death and reviving them and repeating the hypothermia; contorting prisoners into stress positions that create unbearable pain in the muscles and joints; cramming prisoners into upright coffins in painful positions with minimal air; near-drowning, on a waterboard, of human beings—in one case 183 times—even after they have cooperated with interrogators.
What kind of Christian can chastise women for using birth control while promoting the use of torture on humans created in the image of god?
