Who would Jesus torture?

A recent column by the great Molly Ivins revealed to me that "the Rev. Louis Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition is so in favor of torture he told McCain that the senator either supports the torture bill or he can forget about the evangelical Christian vote."

Wow. So evangelical "Christianity" supports a must-torture policy?

Since when is torture a Christian value?

I think that if Jesus Christ came back to earth today, he would point out that he was the torturee, not the torturer.

The gospels tell us that Jesus was the guy who went around easing people's suffering, not causing it.

So what have they been putting in that evangelical Kool-Aid?
