On Morality and Politics

One has to wonder about the state of "morality" in our government - especially among our politicians. It seems to me that the priorities and compass are royally screwed up right now.

While Republican family values keep on showing up in the courtrooms, and Democrats pussyfoot around legal equality for GLBT citizens in the United States, we find a government which is using "executive privilege" to invade citizen's privacy arbitrarily, and send people off knowingly to be tortured.

So, let me get this straight - granting legal equality to law abiding citizens is a bad thing, but torture is a good thing? Since when?
