It's Time to Close Guantanamo

“Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts” cries out the prophet Amos (5:15a). We should heed these words and close Guantanamo Bay prison. For more than a decade, prisoners have been detained there without being charged of a crime or tried in a court of law. Now 100 prisoners are on a hunger strike to protest their indefinite detention, and President Obama has reiterated his desire to close the prison. Call on Congress to remove this national blemish.
