Torture is a moral issue

The Sisters of St. Mary of Buffalo NY say Torture is a Moral Issue. So does North Broadway United Methodist Church in Columbus OH, & Nassau Presbyterian in Princeton NJ, & St Thomas Aquinas Church in Palo Alto CA, & 1st Congregational of Memphis TN, & 300 other churches, synagogues, assemblies & congregations so far in all 50 states as participants in the National Religious Campaign Against Torture. Remember when John McCain was against torture? Torture is torture only until you want the Repug nomination, even if you've been tortured. But he'll have to convince the skeptical Southern Baptists that he really is for torture if he wants their support. Catholic nuns renounced torture as a method of moral instruction decades ago. Southern Baptists never will.
