Resolution Against Torture: Human Rights in a Time of Terrorism (2006)

This policy establishes biblical foundations for opposing torture, especially the affirmation that all persons, created by God, have value and rights that preclude inhumane treatment via torture. Although it addresses a number of places in the world where torture was ongoing in 2006, it focuses primarily on the United States’ use of torture in the course of the Iraq and Afghan wars. The resolution places the PC(USA) squarely in opposition to torture and approves any congressional steps to curb the practice by the country’s military and intelligence communities.
