Using the Bible to clarify the Geneva Conventions

President Bush has a problem with the Geneva Conventions. He says Common Article 3 is "just very, very vague" and "open to interpretation" when it says that prisoners must "be treated humanely" without being subjected to "outrages upon personal dignity."

And that's where the Bible comes in. Since the Bible is God's law, it is above any and all human laws, including the Geneva Conventions. So the Bible can be used to clarify the Geneva Conventions. And that's what the legislation passed by the Senate today did: it clarified Common Article 3 using the Bible's guide to torture.

I disagree, First i think we should use bible instead fuel for the car's. It may not last long but at least its mroe use to it.

For issue, well no matter how hard it is and some ppl won't make any decision but sometimes to save 1000 u need to kill1. With terrorist we have to have same aproach as they have to us. Remember we are not fighting in club who i smarter, we are going against religious fanatics.. and we should use all means nessesary.

Plus what is defenition of a human?
I would say stop the death penalty and let use those terrorists in chemical-biological-pharmaceutical research.
