The majority of church going U.S. Christians thing torture is justified.

According to a recent Pew Research Poll, 54% those in the U.S. who attend religious services at least weekly think that torture can often or sometimes be justified.

I guess Jesus did say "Hate your enemy". Maybe they're onto something.

vs 44 from the linked bible passage says "But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you"

Reading the full text shows that Jesus did not say "Hate your enemy" or anything like it.

Really? Are you one of these people who are into reading verses in context? Clearly you must not be in the majority of U.S. Christians, with regards to torturing one's enemies.

Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, Benjamin.
