A big THANK YOU and Amen! to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter for publicly speaking out against the abuse or prisoners at Guantanamo Bay at a forum before evangelical Christians.
Carter denounced both the abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and the war in Iraq as unjust at the centenary anniversary meeting of the Baptist World Alliance.
America's war denomination, the Southern Baptist Convention, was conspicuously absent from this meeting. They left the Baptist World Alliance a year ago because it admitted the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship into its membership. Jimmy Carter is the most prominent public figure who is member of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Southern Baptists also criticized BWA for voicing criticisms of American foreign policy.
