Update: Lo! What's this? Southern Evangelicals too! That is, until they're reminded about that thing called the golden rule. God bless America!

Today is Sunday, right? A popular day for god and church and all of that; that must be why I found this particular poll interesting. 44% of Americans favor torture in at least some instances (13% say it should be allowed generally), alongside of other societies founded on judeo-christian values like Thailand, Turkey, and Nigeria; more than China, Russia, Iran, Mexico, Indonesia, Ukraine and the Palestinians. Not much stomach for torture in Europe, but I guess we already knew that. Heathens.
