Evangelicals Condemn Torture

The Washington Post has an article describing the National Association of Evangelicals’ condemnation of torture. Richard Cizik is one of the co-authors of this piece, and I really appreciate the ways he has tried to broaden the “evangelical” agenda to include things like this and the environment. But, I still wonder what good proclamations like this do. Sometimes, it seems that our churches still feel like we’re in a “Constantinian” sort of setting where the government listens to our moral proclamations. Of course, perhaps it doesn’t matter if they listen as long as we present an authentic Christian witness.
