Quote of the Day – LDS Church Position on Torture

This is the best anyone can get out of the LDS Church

LDS Church spokesman Scott Trotter on Monday told me: “Abuse of any kind is incompatible with the Church of Jesus Christ.”

Abuse of any kind. That should cover every kind of abuse. Waterboarding someone against their will is considered abuse. Depriving someone of sleep for 11 straight days is considered abuse. Slamming their heads against a fake wall is considered abuse. Dousing someone with near ice cold water for minutes on end is considered abuse. Putting someone in a coffin and making him think there is a deadly spider in that same coffin is considered abuse.

These things are “incompatible with the Church of Jesus Christ.”

  1. Hooray for a Church member willing to state the patently obvious.
