    I can think of at least one possible response, though I agree with the substance of the post. That is that Christ was not alone in His tortures on Calvary. With him were two thieves. I have never read any commentary that suggested they did deserve the treatment that they received; in fact, Scripture implies they did. So, the injustice of Christ’s torture can reasonably be held to be a function of His innocence. But, of the prisoners we have tortured, many have not been innocent. It therefore seems that the immorality of torture cannot be established on the basis of Christ’s Passion alone.
