A Majority Of American Churchgoers Approve Of Torture - A Majority Of Non-Churchgoers Disapprove!

"A majority (54 percent) of those who attend church regularly said torture could be “justified,” while a majority of those not attending church regularly responded that torture was rarely or never justified."
Consortium News

Well, how surprising it that, really. Think about what is at the front of many churches -- a guy NAILED up, bleeding from wounds on head, hands, feet and abdomen.

I've said it before, how very **ahem** Christian of them...

Clearly the majority of American churchgoers are heretics.

(And, Sandra, the fact the God the Son was tortured to death would seem a reason for Christians to oppose torture. Further, depictions of the crucifixion - as opposed to the empty cross - would be vitually unknown in evangelical churches, whose churchgoers were the most likely to support torture since their clergy have been most inclined to preach the heresy of American Dominionism and its derivatives. Thus the churchgoers most likely to support torture were those least likely to have seen a crucifix.)

Sadly Malcolm you are correct.

An often disheartened Christian.

That certain narrow-minded "Christians" should feel this way makes sense. After all, radical sects of Islam believe the same thing... maybe what they say is true: all religious fundamentalist's are, the world over -regardless of theological affiliation - really 'brothers' under the skin! Ergo, frightened, insecure, alienated, and ignorant. With 'Ignorant' being the operative term!

.... somebody say 'Amen'! ...

I haven't read it myself, but I understand Karen Armstrong's 2000 book about fundamentalism is quite good.
