Dick Cheney: “Torturers ‘Should Be Praised”


I’ve believed for years this guy is one “sick psychotic pup”. There is something seriously unbalanced about the man. And to think he was at one time, one step away from being President of the United States. (shivers)

Says the former vice president:

“I’m perfectly comfortable that they should be praised, they should be decorated,” the right-hand man to former president George W. Bush told NBC television’s “Meet the Press” program, adding, “I’d do it again in a minute.”…

  1. If the above isn’t bad enough,

    Dick Cheney On Innocent Detainee Tortured To Death: ‘I Have No Problem’ With That’

    Read the words of this morally corrupt reprobate HERE.

  2. Am i alone in finding it difficult to pray for such men? Its easy to say the words, but extremely difficult to say them from the heart. But it’s what we have to do.

    The Holy Spirit reminded me of the need to pray for this lost man, immediately after posting the above. I obeyed.

  3. Yes, this is so callous! However, a worse thing is to hear professing Christians say this kind of thing – may the Lord help us to be true to the whole counsel of God and love our enemies! We have to defend ourselves but we cannot become like those who attack us,
    Maria

  4. This is so troubling. We are living the verse, “woe to those who call evil good and good evil, call the darkness light and light darkness, sweet bitter and bitter sweet”.

    The only good that can come out of these unchristian sentiments that our leaders make, is that those more liberal-minded who don’t yet know Christ, are actually asking what is wrong with this thinking? It is stirring people who don’t believe. They want justice and righteousness and want no part of the evil Empire. This might open people’s hearts to Jesus. I pray that the wolves don’t destroy all the fallow ground that was made by real christians.

    • It is indeed a topsy-turvy world. Reading comments at a number of news websites–both Christian and secular, i’ve found those who support the actions by our government depicted in this recent report, claim to be Christians, while those who see these actions as highly immoral and just plain wrong, are non-Christians.

  5. God Bless you PJmiller for adhering to the Voice of God! We must speak out against atrocities whenever we get the opportunity, but in the name of Jesus!

    • Thank you aagrove.You’re right, we must speak out about these type of things/actions. If we fail to do so, its as though we’re condoning it.

  6. The really sad thing is that it is not even effective. This is not the way you win people over to your cause. Many terrorists, especially younger ones, have some serious misgivings about what they are involved in, but they are bullied to the point that they comply with the hardliners. We have the opportunity to win these people over to our side and torturing them is not going to get us there. Instead we need to be impressing them as to how civilized people deal with criminals. I am not saying that we should be making their incarceration fun. I am only saying that it should be humane. For us to behave like terrorists in our dealings with them only reinforces their agenda. We might not be able to turn these people loose, but we should be making sure that when they do get out, they will have been transformed by the way that they are treated. Our prison system could learn from this as well.

    • Amen George, excellent points. Did you read John McCain’s speech he gave on the senate floor on this subject of torture? I didn’t get a chance to read it all, only small snips from it, but found it after reading your comment. You and he seem to agree on some points.

      FLOOR STATEMENT BY SENATOR JOHN McCAIN ON SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE REPORT ON CIA INTERROGATION METHODS – Dec 09 2014

      I think on top of the fact of how horrendous these acts were, and how the public was kept in the dark as to what was really happening, the idea of so many Christians seeing these horrible inhumane acts as “fine”…and agree they had to be carried out, is a disgrace…a slap in the face to American Christianity. Or maybe it’s just revealing how rotten and corrupt American Christianity really is.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
