    I'm checking on it now, but I'm reasonably sure you're correct....

    Sarah Palin isn't a Christian.

    I see her speech writers researched the target audience first. Very thorough.

    Yeah, I get it, but I don't understand why a Christian is supposed to feel like they need to publicly object.

    Trust me, I wish they'd stop publicaly objecting about whatever little thing they believe disrespects their religion when a liberal says it.

    This thread is funny..Dems have some nerve calling out Palin when Biden is one step away from the Presidency. Biden is a grade A idiot.

    This. Making fun of her endears her even more to the crazies. They are the ones her livelihood depends on.

    Think of Gitmo as a missionary for more fundamentalism.

    Feed, clothe, bathe your enemies, right?

    I like it!

    Yall just want to b****...it's your lot in life.

    And seriously, every Christian I've talked to has no issue with what she says...and in fact enjoyed the joke.

    My advice for you atheist, quit trying to project your opinion on us Christians. We get the joke and are not offended by it.

    When the former Vice Presidential nominee advocates torturing Muslims to baptize them as Christians... well that's pretty darn funny. Laugh riot.

    People like you don't get to define our faith because you happen to vote a certain way. I am Christian and am grossed out not only by the notion of wanton torture, but the implication that it is somehow akin to baptism.

    If Hillary Clinton had said this, your panties would get so twisted that your butt would become a black hole and suck them into another dimension of time and space.

    I am as well.

    I am, however, open to egg drop soup torture.

    Pretty funny that you talk about projecting opinions as you defend a joke about forcibly converting prisoners to Christianity via torture (sorry... "enhanced interrogation").

    You should probably reread this:
    "You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven."

    Matthew 5:43-48

    Silly Jesus... He was probably just being sarcastic right?

    Also you aren't the mouthpiece for Christianity. You shouldn't be offended anyway, the joke wasn't about Christians.

    I have read the Bible and I know that these views are completely inconsistent with those that Jesus preached.

    Here, here. Let's just avoid the hot and spicy torture.

    You seriously need some therapy if you find Palin's "joke" funny.

    Are you kidding? Who gives a crap about insulting a religion. It's this gung-ho, pro-torture attitude that freaks me the **** out.

    She makes a good point -- why not kill two birds with one stone?

    Agreed. It is actually kinda scary that she is popular and a former vp candidate
