A Faithful Witness Against Torture

The film Zero Dark Thirty has raised a great deal of concern in the human rights community primarily for its fictitious portrayal of torture having been instrumental in the capture of Osama bin Laden.  The task of communities of faith is to build a moral consensus in this country that torture is always wrong.  One week before the Academy awards, The National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) and Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace (ICUJP) will hold a program at the Hollywood United Methodist Church followed by a public witness at Hollywood and Highland, two blocks from the church. Signs will be provided. Clergy are encouraged to wear clerical attire.
