How is this a Christian value?
How is justifying torture a Christian value?
How is lying to the country to justify war a Christian value?
How is corruption a Christian value?
How is ignoring American and International law a Christian value?

Update: Just saw that Foley was the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. Nice.
