Would Jesus torture?

According to a Pew poll, Americans favor torturing detainees. Sad. The worst part of it?

[If] you are an American Christian, you are more likely to support torture than if you are an atheist or agnostic. Christians for torture: it's a new constituency. (Andrew Sullivan)

Yikes. Guess it's time to start dusting off those What Would Jesus Do bracelets, you think?

It IS sad that so many Christians don't have a problem with torture. My local Christian radio host went on a rant about the detainees at Gitmo: "Those guys aren't like us ... they're people accused of terrorism. We're talking about people accused of terrorism". I thought: "Dude ... they're ACCUSED of it; how will we ever know if they don't have a trial?"
