Survey Results

Question wording: Do you think the use of torture against suspected terrorists in order to gain important information can often be justified, sometimes be justified, rarely be justified, or never be justified? [Pew Research Survey]


Evangelical Christians (62%) and weekly church-goers (54%) are the largest percentage of Americans who believe torturing terrorist suspects is often or sometimes justified. And while weekly church-goers who believe torture is never justified matches that of the overall population (25%), only 16% of evangelicals think it is never justified.
