The atheist-controlled or anti-religious media has come out to attack Creationism, but not free-will believers even though based on modern science free-will is much more of an irrational belief than denying evolution or the arguments young Earth Creationists use. The reason why most people don't know this is because the media and society hasn't come out to attack free-will believers like how they've attacked Creationists. Atheists haven't made documentaries or web sites and stuff about it...

Minimal Moral Justifican for Torture

Donya813
Jvelez9

There are outstanding discrepancies of moral justice/injustice that appear to be betwixt and between of resolution that are subsequent to the act of torture. The foundation of torture has spiraled ethical controversies, concerning the righteous boundaries of such procedures and whether they should be acceptably retained.
