What are we doing?

Not even a mile after I crossed the Brooklyn Bridge there is a Religious Society of Friends (the Quakers) Meeting House. It is an old meetinghouse sitting in the midst of modern and tall buildings – near skyscrapers.
As I passed by the meetinghouse, I saw hanging on their chain link fence a large plain white banner that reads, in black letters, “Honor God. Don’t torture.”
What in the world have we come to in this country? This isn’t a commentary on the present administration, but a commentary on the state of the Christian religion in this country. Something is desperately wrong when those in this country who profess to be Christians need to be reminded that it is not honoring to God be allow, consent to, or carry out torture of other human beings!
