Just what are they preaching in evangelical churches these days?

A recent study by the Pew Research Center reveals that evangelical Christians are the most likely to support torture. The more often they go to church, the more likely they are to support such tactics.

And yet, that is the result of the survey. Regular churchgoers at evangelical Christian churches are more likely to support torture than any other group.
