Why am I not surprised?
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.
Oh and how about those non-religious folks, you know the ones who supposedly have no moral base?
People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only 4 in 10 of them did.
