The chief torturer of Sudan's Islamist regime is soon to visit the U.S., igniting not a peep of concern from left-leaning church officials ostensibly very concerned about "torture." Instead, a long list of prominent church honchos is instead demanding President Obama close Guantanamo Bay detention center because of its reputed history of "torture." Their letter was organized by the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, which has received over $1 million from George Soros.
"Guantanamo Bay is a place where our government tortured prisoners, and it continues to be a place where many are detained indefinitely without trial," the church activists wrote Obama. "We believe that our government has a moral obligation to close the prison at Guantanamo. We hope that you share this belief and that you will act expeditiously to close Guantanamo."
The letter was signed by old-line Protestant officials with groups like the National Council of Churches and United Methodist Board of Church and Society, with old leftist Catholic lobbies like Pax Christi and Sister Simone Campbell's "Nuns on the Bus" NETWORK, plus the Islamic Society of North America of course.
