Morally Failed Christians Were Merely Looking for An Excuse to Be Brutal

JB's articulation is aces:
It's not the war on terror that caused Christians to morally fail by accepting something as anti-Christian as torture. It's the other way around. It's the moral failure of the conservative Christian movement, the movement away from the teachings of Christ and toward political radicalism, that made it possible for them to see torture as a morally acceptable part of the war on terror. Fear was just the perfect vehicle.
When the media passes on the meme that Christians were somehow more benevolent and actually loved their enemies before 9/11, they merely empower failed evangelicalism.
