I have always preferred Mother Jones, voice-piece of the American yuppie hippie parade to everything else when I want my social conscience informed. It is certainly better than the evangelical magazine of record, CT.

Here is a fine brief article from them on torture. Let me restate in case someone might actually choose to preach on it and change some minds. Unlike Kevin Drum, the author of that piece, Christians have a whole barrage of arguments and frameworks by which to deconstruct the ludicrous and evil justifications for torture. We worship the tortured God. We are called to oppose all torture in all places.
