saddam hussein

today I heard some people talking about Saddam Hussein and his claims that he was tortured as he was being held for trial. They were making comments like "boo-fucking-hoo" and imagining "Beat-Me-Up Saddam" toys. It almost made me cry. Yes, Saddam Hussein has done some horrible things in his life. BUT HE'S A HUMAN! I've broken peoples' hearts, I've lied, cheated, stolen, been uncaring, unloving, and therefore I have NO right to condemn Saddam Hussein and say he should be treated as less than human. Not that we should condone what he's done, but treat him as we treat any other human who does stuff wrong. Do we think he's beyond God's love? Because we quite easily place him beyond ours. Maybe we should think about that some more.
