Christians for torture

Or so it would seem, judging from a survey by Pew Global on attitudes to torture among four US religious demographics - white Evangelicals, white Catholics, white mainstream Protestants and white unaffiliated.

Some 62% of the former believe torture often or sometimes justified, as do 51% of Catholics, 46% of Protestants and 40% of the unafilliated. And approval rises with church attendance - 54% of those going at least weekly approve, compared to 51% of monthly attenders and 42% of rare / never attend.


A rum business. A very rum business

Not as rum as me. I am a right wing atheistand I feel that torture might sometimes be justified, but I'm very thankful that I'm not in a position to have to decide when.
