Below the jump, is a post I first wrote for the Bloggernacle Times on 09/23/06. We were several years into the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and the natural abuses of war were being made manifest. Here we are almost five years later and the United States still maintains troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan, for reasons that frankly escape me (particularly in light of the extreme heat–but very little light–generated by the far right about deficits, balanced budgets, and the like). Regardless, I think the message behind Christ’s injunction, i.e., The Golden Rule, is as relevant and important today as they ever were–even in times of war.
Dick Cheney, one of the primary architects of the Iraq war, and of the Bush Administration torture policies has just published his long anticipated autobiography–so called. In it, Mr. Cheney makes no apologies and pitches his torture philosophy all over again. He did the same in a recent interview at media friendly Fox News Sunday. I find the idea is still antithetical to Christ’s teaching of treating others as we would be treated.
The links in the old post should all work (at least the vast majority of the ones I tested did). You may have to wait a minute for the link to actually link through to the original source, as it first takes you to the cached web page of the provider first, then takes you to the actual original link.

Time again for the Semi Annual Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–Mormon General Conference. LDS Media Talk has a great post with several links on how best to enjoy this year’s October Conference. There are also several Blogernacle Links where you can follow conference: Of course there is the By Common Consent Threads–i.e., The One and Only True General Conference Thread (psst–don’t tell them, but they think they’re the only ‘nacle link out there for General Conference). Chris H over at FPR has an open thread, mingling the philosophies of men, with conference (and being the social justice guru I know him to be, it will also include the philosophies of women as well). M* also has an open thread. If you Tweet, the follow #ldsconf for pithy 140 character summaries. Should be a great 5 sessions. Come listen to Prophets, Seers and Revelators–messengers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and mold your life accordingly . . .
