Jesus' General J.C. Christian writes to the Dean at U.C. Berkeley's Boalt Hall Law School in praise of its faculty member John Yoo, proudly espousing the vision of the America we are becoming... that shining interrogation center on a hill. (I note that Prof. Yoo himself was actually pretty courteous in declining my request for an interview with this blog, at one time; it's mostly a free country, after all, even if he doesn't seem to think so.)
The General spots a fascinating trend between youthful cruelty to animals and adult cruelty to, well, everyone... that other servant of Jesus, St. Ignatius of Loyola, who quipped "give me the child til' seven and I'll give you the man," appears to have been on to something.
Praise The Lord and pass the thumbscrews and wooden splints.
