Senator Praises Inquisition as Proof that Torture Works

George W. Bush and a key general in Iraq both called the Iraq war a "crusade". Many other high-level civilian and military leaders also believe in fighting a religious war against Islam.

Troops are actively being indoctrinated to fight a religious crusade in the Middle East. The U.S. military has just been busted trying to convert Afghanis and Iraqis to Christianity.

Rumsfeld delivered Iraq war intel reports with prominent biblical passages, to buck up the crusader-in-chief.

Prisoners were tortured as part of a crusading inquisition.

And this week, prominent Senator Lindsey Graham basically defended the Spanish Inquisition, saying:

“One of the reasons these techniques have been used for about 500 years is that they work”.

Hmmm ... sounds familiar. And see this.


  1. If you follow his reasoning, Senator Graham's logic depends on folks being guilty of witchcraft.

  2. see if they float!
