Survey: Support for terror suspect torture differs among the faithful

With the methods of seeking information from suspected terrorists being such a focus at present, it’s interesting to note the results of this survey.

Interestingly enough, the same people who believe in the virgin birth, talking snakes and people living inside of whales and up to 800 years old are also more likely to say that using torture is justified.
Yes – these are the same people who preach God’s forgiveness and goodness.

Needless to say that this survey adds to the already huge amount of data showing that what the religious preach is different to how they act. It’s inconsistant and yet they defend it to the end – as is evidenced by my “discussion” of this with my partner.

It’s sad that yet again, divisions are drawn down religious lines and not human ones.

Just another item of evidence that will lead to the negativity of religion being it’s downfall.
