Fifty Presbyterians (and one Quaker) gathered at Columbia Seminary from February 3 - 5 for a consultation titled "Terror, Torture and Security: Theological Considerations for Tomorrow's Leaders."
Stay tuned for some exciting ideas (like a YouTube video contest called "What's the big deal about Torture?"). In the meantime, the speakers were quite powerful, and you can see one of the keynotes by Attorney Scott Horton at http://harpers.org/archive/2008/02/hbc-90002305
