Ye have heard of those who are the salt of the Earth. They hate torture, torturers, and those who support torture. Yes, hate. This may sound strange coming from people who profess to be real Christians; however, Jesus too hated. He hated evil-doers even while he loved them enough to warn them away from their iniquitous behavior and emotional root of evil.
Torturers and those who support torture are the opposite of the salt of the Earth. They are the scum of the Earth. That is how people of good hearts need to refer to them. They need to do that to plant the strongest seeds in the minds of the general population to loathe torture and to stand up squarely against it and those who do it and support it.
Humanity must overcome this evil and all the rest of evil if it is to survive and if human souls are to be finally saved.
No Christian tortures anyone ever. No Christian condones torturing anyone ever. All Christians speak out in the strongest terms against torture that includes waterboarding and all the other techniques that have been used and are being used by the despicable U.S. intelligence community and all the other spies and others throughout the world.
Torture is hellish, and everyone who does it and supports it and doesn't repent of it all in the most radical way is bound for the depths of Hell. To those hellions who want to cling to evil in the face of clear warnings and righteous instruction, we say good riddance! The righteous will be internally free of you demons. Thank God!
