Quote of the Week

Via Sojourners:

“It is a powerful way to be a witness for Christ, by demonstrating your capacity to not judge the way everybody else is judging and to serve unconditionally.”

–Lt. Cmdr. William C. Kuebler, a military lawyer for a Guantánamo detainee, who has persistently challenged Bush Administration policy as “designed to get criminal convictions” with “no real evidence,” and asserted that Pentagon prosecutors “launder evidence derived from torture.” (Source: The New York Times)

Given the continuing revelations concerning torture in recent days the above seems particularly relevant. We need to pray for Kuebler and others who follow their faith even when, especially when, doing so makes life more difficult.
