Clueless Church-Going Bastards

The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new survey.

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.

My guess why this is so: these folks have been tortured every Sunday and think that others need to be tortured, too. {Note to the humor-impaired: that was a joke... only a joke...}

I guess you didn't make it down to this part:

"The religious group most likely to say torture is never justified was Protestant denominations..."

or this:

"Roughly half of all respondents -- 49 percent -- said it is often or sometimes justified."

So the difference between those who go to church and the average is within the typical margin of error. The poll says nothing.

Define torture please. Of course the survey does not. Useless and worthless propaganda. This nation does not torture now or under Bush. Its just a political game played by the left to provide them more power. The word TORTURE invokes emotionalism which Obama plays on very well.

I think Anonymous needs to be deprived of food & water and then waterboarded, because, after all, it is not torture... some people are so fucking gullible!
