SBC Pastor On War & Torture - And Makes Sense!

Over at the new SBCOutpost.com, Southern Baptist pastor Benjamin S. Cole writes....
We are, to be sure, one of the greatest conglomerate of American warhawks in this century and the last. We haven’t found a Republican military offensive for which we will not provide some degree of affirmation and apologetic. Whether advancing the torture of Guantanamo detainees, as in the case of Daniel Heimbach at SEBTS, or rallying to the cause of “preemptive strikes,” as has been done by Richard Land, we are inexcusably defiant of basic principles of Christian ethics. That we do so under the illusion of advancing Christ’s Kingdom and preserving a “Clear Baptist Identity” is both shameful and egregious.
At least one Southern Baptist gets it....I hope there are more.
