The Pope on Torture

I repeat the firm condemnation of every form of torture and invite Christians to commit themselves to work together for its abolition and to support victims and their families. To torture persons is a mortal sin. A very grave sin.

– Pope Francis.
Still waiting for the bishops or any other part of the American church to take Catholic teaching on war and torture as seriously as they take Catholic teaching on abortion and birth control.
