Endorse an End to Torture

From the National Religious Campaign Against Torture:
Torture violates the basic dignity of the human person that all religions hold dear. It degrades everyone involved --policy-makers, perpetrators and victims. It contradicts our nation's most cherished ideals. Any policies that permit torture and inhumane treatment are shocking and morally intolerable. ...
It continues in simple and direct language, imploring our leaders to remove all ambiguity about our commitment to eschew torture or the rendition of prisoners to states where they may be tortured. It is sponsored by a coalition of liberal and conservative theologians and others from many faith traditions.

Please follow the link, read the statement, and endorse it. There will be an opportunity to make an optional donation if you would like.

Thank you to Mary at Pacific Views for calling my attention to this important cause.
