Church Folks for a Better America 

By way of Katrina vanden Heuvel’s Nation blog, I came across a valuable website. Church Folks for a Better America’s site will be available here under Links permanently (or at least until we have a better America).

I also recommend Katrina vanden Heuvel’s post about CFBA founder George Hunsinger and his campaign to fight the use of torture. It should be pointed out that when pundits are falling on themselves to call the President ‘courageous’ for lying about Social Security— true courage CAN be found in the lonely battles of religious people like Hunsinger, and secular people with similar ethics, to fight the evil of torture and abuse, practices now being used to fight ‘evildoers’ on the President's say-so.

This country has a proud history of moral courage, often on the part of people not in power, to work against the popular tide of public opinion to stop crimes being committed in our name. Hunsinger’s group falls squarely within that tradition.
