A2: Torture

Three religious leaders from different faiths – including Robert Dobrusin, rabbi of the Beth Israel Congregation in Ann Arbor – write an op/ed published in the Detroit News, urging the government to abolish torture without exception. They write: ”As religious leaders, our primary concerns are moral and spiritual, but we are also concerned about the practical issues of torture. Some people support torture, believing that it will make them safe. Torture will not keep us safe. It puts us more at risk.” [Source]
