It is also no surprise that Pew found that white evangelicals are least likely to oppose torture under any conditions. Absolute universal human rights views are not nearly as strongly held by white fundamentalists and evangelicals. (My research indicated that African American evangelicals were more disposed to social justice frames).
It is surprising to me that white Catholics lag far behind white mainliners in absolute opposition to torture and that their opposition is roughly comparable to white evangelicals. Catholic social teachings on human rights must be slipping among white laity in the "Mother Church."
