Do Unto Others What You Don't Want Done To Yourself

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.  

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