Reckoning with Torture

Torture by the US Government is one of the major ethical issues of our time.

  • Torture does not produce worthwhile intelligence
  • Torture does not match American values
  • Torture contributes to a culture of fear
  • Torture damages human beings created in God’s image
  • Toruture harms those who participate in it

The Catacomb Church in Everett/Marysville is inviting you to a public reading as we participate in the Reckoning With Torture movie.  We are gathering to read 11 reflections and accounts by people who have been tortured or have participated in torture.  These readings will be filmed and the best readings from across the nation and from acclaimed actors such as Robert Redford will be used to create a film, directed by Doug Liman.
