Thiessen is making up his own religion.

October 2007, Cardinal Renato Martino, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace:

"Christians are called to cooperate for the defense of human rights and for the abolition of the death penalty, torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment against the human person in time of peace and in case of war.
"These practices are grave crimes against the human person, created in the image of God, and a scandal for the human family in the 21st century.

Bishop of Albany, Howard J. Hubbard of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace, wrote to President-elect Barack Obama last January urging him to:

restore our nation’s moral standing in the world by rejecting the practice of torture.”

Thiessen says that Rick Warren is wrong about torture, but he neglects to mention that Rick Warren's statement was issued with Elie Wiesel and Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick of Washington: They wrote:

Torture violates the basic dignity of the human person that all religions hold dear. It degrades everyone involved --policy-makers, perpetrators and victims. It contradicts our nation's most cherished ideals. Any policies that permit torture and inhumane treatment are shocking and morally intolerable.

As never before, conservatives are living in fictional world.

A Republican torture lover tells gullible conservatives that the Catholic Church approves of torture, even though church officials have been unequivocal in their denunciations of the Bush adminstration torture policies. Conservatives believe that a Republican speech writer who was in bed with the torturers is the authority on Church teaching, but the Pope and the bishops don't don't know what they're talking about.

Republicans are worthless.

"He thanked the interrogators [for waterboarding him]."

Stockholm Syndrome. Mark Thiessen is an evil man.
