Is Christianity compatible with Torture?

YES, says Fox News’ Sean Hannity, according to a post on Rawstory.  In an ‘interview’with Meghan McCain (you’re right about the last name): “Do you disagree with your dad at all about enhanced interrogations?” asked Hannity. John McCain has been vocal about his opposition to torture.  

Before allowing McCain to answer, Hannity went on a mini-diatribe and suggested that his religious beliefs wouldn’t prevent him from supporting an anti-terror tactic almost universally considered to be torture.

“Because my attitude is that if we capture an enemy combatant in the battlefield — or we can use Osama bin Laden — who may have information about a pending attack. You know what, I don’t have any problem taking his head sticking it underwater and scaring the living daylights out of him and making him think we’re drowning him,” declared Hannity, “and I’m a Christian.”

McCain disagreed. “I think it’s what separates us from the terrorists . My father could never lift me up as a child because he can’t move his arm. He can’t ride a bike because he can’t bend his knee because he was tortured. I think he knows better,” she said.
