UCC Against Torture

Torture is the worst agony that one human being can inflict on another. Whether physical or psychological, torture is destructive of the human spirit for both the tortured person and the torturer. As people of faith, we believe that each human being is made in the image and likeness of God. When someone tortures another child of God, they torture Christ.
