Torture has Friends

Our friends in the Gulf

When the US authorizes torture and protects the people who order it, this is the company it keeps.
It's kind of hard for the US government to say something about this.After all, Cheney, Bush, Rice and Rumsfeld are still wandering around free, aren't they?

Romans 1:32 knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Churchgoers more likely to back torture, survey finds

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new analysis.
More than half of people who attend services at least once a week — 54 percent — said the use of torture against suspected terrorists is “often” or “sometimes” justified. Only 42 percent of people who “seldom or never” go to services agreed, according the analysis released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.
White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified — more than 6 in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only 4 in 10 of them did.
The analysis is based on a Pew Research Center survey of 742 American adults conducted April 14-21. It did not include analysis of groups other than white evangelicals, white non-Hispanic Catholics, white mainline Protestants, and the religiously unaffiliated, because the sample size was too small.
This is part of the "Great Whore" of Revelation. Is this because those in the church are not true Christians, or those with true moral values have seen the hypocrisy of the religious system and can not be a part of it. These are the same people that TORTURED Jesus.
