Open Thread II

That last one got pretty interesting, so I’ll put this out there again. Possible discussion topic: The Southern Baptist leadership has come out firmly and unequivocally against torture. What this means to me is that you have just about the broadest possible spectrum of church leaders firmly opposing the practice – including practices like waterboarding that some have attempted to define out of the equation. But what about the Christians that have somehow syncretized torture into their Christianity?
