Monica Goodling, the Bu$hCo Justice Department employee, now on an extended leave of absence, graduated from Messiah College. Messiah College is affiliated to the Brethern In Christ Church. Here is one of the ten core principals of that faith:
We value all human life and promote forgiveness,understanding, reconciliation, and non-violent resolution of conflict.
Siguiendo la Paz
Valoramos la vida humana y promovemos el perdón, el entendimiento, la reconciliación, y la resolución no violenta a los conflictos.
It is also true that Goodling went to Pat Robertson's fake-a-roony Regent University Law School. One of the highlights of attending Regent is the prospect of licking ice cream with boneheaded, I'll-charge-anyone-with-terrorism-quit-&-let-others-clean-up-the-mess John Ashcroft. Ice cream with a guy that can't sing & who insisted on covering up the breasts of a female statue at the Justice Department. Now I don't know Ms. Goodling's faith of choice, but I find it hard to reconcile a core belief in non-violence, with a Justice Department's support of torture. So much for core beliefs. I guess it's not torture if Bu$hCo says it's not torture, however, I thought god was the final arbiter of that, I guess I'm wrong again, just as I was wrong about thinking that supporting a bill in Congress that allows Bu$hCo to continue to kill people for two years is actually a bill for peace, not a bill for dead people. My mistake.
