Water-boarding = Baptism for Terrorists?

Recently at an NRA event, Sarah Pailn had a lot to say about "Liberals." Insisting that 'they,' I am assuming she meant Liberals, or anyone not obliged to partake in her delusional positions for that matter. Stating matter of fact, Democrats are against prayer in school, but students were fine to curse up a storm in class. No, that  is not true. Democrats say, if you  are a Christian fine, be a Christian. However, if you  are an Atheist, fine. That  is your business. You may be surprised to find out there are Christians who are Democrats. I know shocking, right? Take me, for example, I am a firm believer in the Christian faith and the Lord Jesus Christ. Point being, because I believe in God, I cannot be a Conservative. You see, Democrats are about helping the less fortunate and giving everyone a 'fair shot.' Moreover, yes, we are about tolerance. That being, I am free to practice my religion without restriction and you are free to practice your unbelief, etc., That should not be confused with endorsing a behavior etc., That is to say, tolerance does not mean that we agree with the behavior of other people. It means that we respect their rights because we feel strong about our rights and for the good of society, respecting each other is imperative. Mrs. Pailn would have people believe Democrats are against guns, self defense, and every other ridiculous piece of misinformation spouted in Conservative circles. Some people are firmly against firearms and others believe regulation is needed.
"Here's more from The Hill, who decided to dance around the notion that waterboarding is torture, as well.(1)."
"Palin at NRA meeting: ‘Waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists’: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) defended the controversial enhanced interrogation technique of waterboarding this weekend, and implied that the practice would still be commonplace “if I were in charge.” “They obviously have information on plots to carry out Jihad,” she said at the National Rifle Association (NRA) annual meeting on Saturday evening, referring to prisoners. "Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen. Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.” "The remark stands in stark contrast to the opinion of her former running mate, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). The former Republican presidential nominee, who spent more than five years in a prison camp during the Vietnam War, has repeatedly denounced the practice, which he says is torture. In her speech, Palin praised the NRA, a group whose members “are needed now more than ever, because every day we are seeing more and more efforts to strip away our Second Amendment rights," she said. “See, our patience is running thin. It’s being teased and tempted by some intellectual elite in some far distant capital wanting us to abandon even the ideas of the American revolution,(1)." she added.
