31. Agreed!
You've hit the nail on the head. Faith (any faith) should be chosen, not forced on someone. That's why I am so disgusted when I read the story of one of the prisoners at Abu Ghraib being beaten and tortured until he uttered the phrase "I renounce Allah (which, BTW, is simply the Arabic word for God--Arab Christians pray to Allah)---and accept Jesus as my Savior and Lord.

You would think that Christians would (as I have) be outraged at that and say to the world "it's unacceptable." Who Would Jesus Torture? And, yet, a poll in these parts--(buckle of the Bible Belt) showed a majority saying that torture should be an option?!!!

You certainly didn't hear Dobson condemn it, did you? He's a hypocrite.
