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

Seriously–love your enemies, turn the other cheek, ‘vengence is mine’ says the Lord, do not return evil for evil–what do people think that means?  I don’t get this at all.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some Christians approved of torture, or even a substantial minority, but I’m just dumb-founded that church attendance is positively correlated with a pro-torture stance.  We are failing at some pretty fundamental spiritual formation somewhere.
