Torture debate prompts evangelical soul-searching
Among evangelical leaders, debate over the use of harsh interrogation techniques against suspected terrorists has prompted introspection about faith, ethics, the Golden Rule, just wars, Jack Bauer and Jesus.

A number of evangelical leaders have made opposition to torture without exceptions a moral cause over the past three years, part of a broadening of the movement's agenda beyond traditional culture war issues. Others in the movement, including many Christian right leaders, have largely resisted or stayed silent.

Now, President Barack Obama's release of Bush administration memos justifying harsh interrogation techniques and a new poll showing white evangelicals more sympathetic to torture have leaders taking stock of whether evangelical opinion has shifted on the topic. ...

From the article, "Last fall, a poll commissioned by Faith in Public Life and Mercer University found that 44 percent of white Southern evangelicals rely on life experience and common sense to form opinions on torture. By contrast, 28 percent said they relied on Christian teachings or beliefs.

Even so, Gushee said he senses a "deep moral, spiritual and theological problem" in evangelical support for torture."

Hmmm, apparently not enough evangelicals have been tortured? Perhaps we should ask the opinion of Christians in Muslim and Communist countries?

Interesting to note, in the "Gulag Archipelago" by Andre Solzenitzen, He said the Communist usually didn't torture Christians because it did not have the effect they wanted.

It sounds like the Muslims are converting "Christians" to their way of thinking?
