The Pew Research Center conducts a lot of surveys - but this one yielded a very surprising result: churchgoers, especially Evangelicals, are more likely to support torture than those unaffiliated with any religious organization.
The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new survey.
More than half of people who attend services at least once a week -- 54 percent -- said the use of torture against suspected terrorists is "often" or "sometimes" justified. Only 42 percent of people who "seldom or never" go to services agreed, according to the analysis released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.
White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified -- more than six in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only four in 10 of them did.

Are you serious?
We don't abhor torture the way we might.
it's pretty much a rehash of the golden rule, just in opposition. don't do unto others as you wouldn't have them do unto you.
Fascism is the ugly stepsister to communism. It is in no way right wing by the American definition of the term.
The lie to communism is that the people can own or control anything without members of the state as the management.
Both types of governments are statist with strong central control. The American Right is federalist and should be for limited government Both oppose free markets.
Stalinists dubbed Fascists rightwing because that was the propaganda.
I know, wikis aren't the answer.

There is much more to this than I can write or than this wiki can tell. But they make a pretty good start.
