Canaans old and new

On the plane to New Canaan (if you recall, old Canaan was a place God (or someone speaking on his behalf, I can’t remember) once notified “the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant) many of my fellow passengers are discussing claims that sexual tactics were used at Guantanamo:

Female interrogators tried to break Muslim detainees at the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with sexual touching, by wearing a miniskirt and thong underwear...The female interrogator…removed her uniform top to expose a tight-fitting T-shirt and began taunting the detainee, touching her breasts, rubbing them against the prisoner's back and commenting on his apparent erection...

What this means is that our military has concluded it is useful to subject our worst enemies to the simulated conditions of an ordinary American junior high school. Many are calling for an end to using these methods against captured terrorists, but shouldn’t they instead be calling for an end of junior high schools?

Seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger...
