Hey, who thinks torture is never justified?
I won’t chew out all the Christians this time (because I take it for granted that religion, especially a death cult, is not a moralizing influence). Instead, I want to know what the hell is wrong with the 59% of my fellow non-religious people who think torture is sometimes acceptable!
I was also mildly amused by this quote at the National Catholic Reporter article:
During Lent especially, he [David Robinson of Pax Christi] says, the image of Jesus, who was tortured to death, should be powerful for Catholics, reminding them that “Christ is being crucified today through the practice of torture.”
After all, if it was good enough for Jesus…
(I was pointed to a post on this survey at Andrew Sullivan, who also has some pithy comments on it.)
