Donald Trump has just said that torture “absolutely”
works and that he would approve it in his
administration if his team agrees. That torture works
is a lie and a moral aggression that would directly
lead to the use of torture again by the United States.
As many diverse Christian leaders have said, torture
is anti-Christian. Will the Christians who supported
Donald Trump stand up against torture under his
regime? “Speaking the truth to power” is a necessary
and invaluable Christian practice and tradition which
may become central again in our witness to the
presidency of Donald Trump.

Perhaps John the apostle puts it best: “You will know
the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

"We must no longer be children, tossed to and fro and
blown about by every wind of doctrine, by people’s
trickery, by their craftiness in deceitful scheming. But
speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every
way into him who is the head, into Christ…. So then,
putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to
our neighbors, for we are members of one another.”)
