Whoa! Evangelicals AGAINST torture?

A Sullivan reader reports:
Over the past week, I have seen some public signs of hope and conscience from within the evangelical movement. One was Charles Marsh's fine op-ed in last Friday's New York Times, in which he called on evangelicals to repent of their support of the Iraq war. Then yesterday I received my February edition of Christianity Today with the cover story: 'Why Torture is Always Wrong.'
What is the world coming to when followers of Jesus Christ object to inflicting bodily harm onto others? Don't they realize we're at war against evil? Traitors.
