Lonsberry is out of line

Recently, the news reported that American soldiers had burned the bodies of two Taliban fighters in Afghanistan and then broadcast a taunting message to a village where more fighters were allegedly hiding. It should go without saying that such behavior on the part of our troops is repulsive, anti-Christian and unAmerican.

It should, but apparently it doesn't.

Bob Lonsberry, a popular local talk-show host, wrote a sickening article about it on his Web site, giving it the title "They call them Afghan S'Mores." He stooped to sacrilege when he implied that Jesus would have done something even more violent if he'd been there.
