It's simple, Mr. or Ms. Heretik. The majority of Americans know that they aren't personally going to be tortured, because it's only "those" people (you know, "those" people -- brown, talk funny, wear funny clothes, not like REAL people, "those" people?) who get tortured. Meanwhile, moms and dads are scared to death that their own little Johnny or Jill is going to be "turned into a homosexual" by the evil "homosexual agenda".

In other words, it's because homosexuality hits the American bigot at home, while torture doesn't. The American bigot doesn't care what happens to OTHER people, as long as it doesn't happen to him or his own. Homosexuality might happen to one of his own. Torture almost certainly won't (except for the minority of Americans who are suspiciously dusky-colored, y'know?).

As with Germany in 1939, the majority of Americans have no problem with torture, as long as it only happens to untermenschen and not to fine upstanding citizens like them.

Bad Tux:
The morality of the uber is can always be judged by how the uber treats the unter.

Give yourself a well deserved pat on the back.

Now get back to work.
