National Summit on Torture

September 11, 2008

The group Evangelicals for Human Rights is hosting a summit on torture along with several other religious groups. The meeting, being held today and tomorrow, is called "A National Summit on Torture: Religious Faith, Torture, and Our National Soul." You can watch the sessions live online here. Hopefully, this event will continue to lead evangelicals and others to oppose torture. You can read and sign "An Evangelical Declaration Against Torture" here. Last year I critiqued Christian support for torture in a column entitled "Tortured Theology."
