“White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified — more than six in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only four in 10 of them did.”
This is why people fear the religious. We don’t have the courage of our convictions.
“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for
his he is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”
— Luke 6:35-36
