225 Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh leaders, organized by Church Folks for a Better America, have written an open letter to Alberto Gonzales to condemn the use of torture under any circumstances, and to embrace international laws regarding human rights before he is confirmed as attorney general. The letter appeals to Gonzales as “a self-professed evangelical Christian,” and laments the nominee’s “torture memo.” “We invite you to affirm with us that we are all are made in the image of God –- every human being. We invite you to acknowledge that no legal category created by mere mortals can revoke that status. You understand that torture –- the deliberate effort to undermine human dignity –- is a grave sin and affront to God.”
