"Why Didn't Ashcroft-the-Christian Stop The Torture?"

Steven Waldman at Beliefnet- “Why Didn’t Ashcroft-the-Christian Stop The Torture?”:
“But if that’s the case, I’m left wondering: what is the value of having a religious person in office? I don’t mean that as a snarky rhetorical question. I’m honestly perplexed: if ever there was a situation when we actually could have benefited from having a self-righteous, moral, Bible-reading, God-fearing Christian in the room to morally challenge utilitarian thinking, the discussions about torture would have been it.”
