24 was very popular, and some cheered and made excuses for torture and Abu Gharib - even after those horrifying pictures came out. As well as the destruction which Christians should consider war crimes, and "nation building" which is a priory an unjust war.
And made excuses, well, yes, we have to be porn scanned by the TSA to fly though the pictures of us naked are being seen (stored?), and someone is going to grope our private parts - including our toddlers, grandmothers, sisters, and wives. To be safe we must be raped!
And Real-ID, Biometrics, and the NSA getting all our data.
We will probably take the Mark of the Beast, as long as it stops terrorism, fraud, human trafficking, and child pornography - the chip in your palm or forehead? Well, it is the patriotic thing to do!
