Poll shows support for torture among Southern evangelicals
WASHINGTON — A new poll finds that nearly six in 10 white Southern evangelicals believe torture is justified, but their views can shift when they consider the Christian principle of the golden rule.

The poll released Thursday, commissioned by Faith in Public Life and Mercer University, found that 57% of respondents said torture can be often or sometimes justified to gain important information from suspected terrorists. Thirty-eight percent said it was never or rarely justified.

But when asked if they agree that "the U.S. government should not use methods against our enemies that we would not want used on American soldiers," the percentage who said torture was rarely or never justified rose to 52%. ...

The reference to Judges 8 sounds more like punishment of an already vanquished foe--or rather punishment of an uncooperative ally--than "torture" (military coersion designed to gather information to overcome an enemy).

Judges 1:22-25 is the only Biblical example of "torture" that I've been able to find.

Unless people can come to some understanding and agreement of just what "torture" really is, any kind of study, debate, or "Biblical scholarship" on such an issue is not going to be worth much.

I like Proverbs 20:18. If war or any of it's components (including "torture") are is to be practiced, MUCH wisdom needs to be employed for sure.

Yes, they seem to forget what Christians are all about,

Judges 8
7 And Gideon said, Therefore when Jehovah hath delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into my hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers.

JFB Commentary wrote:
7. I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers—a cruel torture, to which captives were often subjected in ancient times, by having thorns and briers placed on their naked bodies and pressed down by sledges, or heavy implements of husbandry being dragged over them.
We're suppose to be New Covenant People not Old Covenant.

Proving that you can get whatever result you want from a poll, depending on how you word it.
