First off Jim,
I stated early on that I thought this question was somewhat directed as a christian slam by an atheist poster, Dope, and I did discuss it with the poster. We are diametrically opposed. . That in itself sets a precedence.
What were the poll questions? If for example it is based on waterboarding, rather than out and out doing physical and lasting mental damage? There is no knowledge of what was asked.
Who was polled???
Where was the poll conducted?? In the beltway?
Who was the poll conducted for?? Somebody paid for the service.
Then the Pew research center is oft times skewed. Most polls are, and out for an agenda. This definitely seems skewed and introduced here, again, by a person of atheist mindset, which is again skewed, like I as a christian would be on the other extreme (thus, no offense, Dope).
With all of that said, I don't condone torture, but I also need to ask what is considered torture? Some of these practices of loud rock music for hours on end and other silly annoyances are not torture, or I would be filing charges to a previous neighbor for permanent mental torture and anguish. Definition is key (that is an annoyance, not torture).
It gets annoying when christians again are thrown to the lions for simply having beliefs, and defending them and we are supposed to sit back in silence when atheists, radical muslims, and others speak their minds?
Nah, can't buy your mindset.
Also can't buy that christians prefer torture over non christians.
Do You Really Buy That?? I mean,,,,really??
