A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Restoring Human Rights

I usually don't pay attention to endorsements but this is one that matters. More than eighty attorneys volunteering on behalf of detainees at Guantanamo Bay have endorsed Senator Barack Obama for president. They write:
The writ of habeas corpus ..was enshrined by the Founders in our Constitution. The Bush administration's attack on habeas corpus is dangerous and wrong. (These) policies have undercut our values at home and stained our reputation around the world.

We need a President who will restore the rule of law, demonstrate our commitment to human rights, and repair our reputation in the world community. Based on our work with him, we are convinced that Senator Obama can do this.."
