Churchgoers More Likely To Support Torture

CNN has just posted an article about a disturbing survey that has just come out.

Survey: Support for terror suspect torture differs among the faithful

White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified — more than six in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only four in 10 of them did.

Sam Harrelson and I will likely talk about this on our next episode of Thinking Baptists, but I’m curious what you think about this. Is torture okay? Should Christians have a different response than “broader culture”? Is this an issue that should not even be questioned?
