Torture unto others...

According to a Pew Research Center poll, you're more likely to support torturing prisoners if you attend church regularly, especially if you belong to one of the so-called "mainline" Protestant chuches, like the Episcopalians, Lutherans, or Presbyterians.

CNN reports that "[m]ore 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."

Puts a new spin on the Golden Rule, doesn't it?
