Mormons and Torture

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has caused quite a stir by refusing to condemn the use of torture, inviting ridicule and resignation. I admit that I was puzzled, along with many others, that the Church would align themselves with such torture-lovers as Dick Cheney and Alberto Gonzales, but then I realized the problem: how can the Mormons come out strongly against our current policy of torture in a country where Donny and Marie are still running loose? It would seem so hypocritical.

No doubt!!!

Not to mention the endless barage of what I now dub "clear channel music" that we have to endure whenever we flip on the radio at any given point of the day.
