A recent poll from the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life found that 54% of those who regularly attend church at least once a week said the torture of suspected terrorists was “often” or “sometimes” justified. Only 42% of people who seldom attend church services agreed. What does this say about religion’s role in how we perceive justice? And where do you, and your congregation, come down on this issue?   According to this poll the difference is 12%, enough to indicate a definite difference in opinion, but it isn’t a landslide difference.

It seems that the Internet can not only violate your privacy but it can also kill you. A visually intense film, there is something to be said about a Web site that can produce that much blood and gore, proving that there are indeed much better places to visit on the Web -- and much better movies to see as the summer wanes.

Ryan Carter CIVIC CENTER -- A diminutive 13-year-old girl, tears streaming down her cheeks as she choked back sobs, chronicled a year of alleged abuse by her stepfather and her biological mother after the family moved to a Burbank apartment from their home in Arizona. "Where would he hit you?" asked Deputy District Atty. Cynthia Nakao, standing beside the witness box where the girl sat as she testified in court Monday. "Everywhere," answered the girl, Christina, recounting the beatings she received at the hands of the Allans.

Burbank Police Officer Randy Lloyd went flying over his motorcycle's handlebars in November 2003, his tires slipping on the rubberized apron of the railroad tracks made slick by light rain. The Nov. 15 crash near the corner of Buena Vista Street and San Fernando Boulevard would send him to the hospital, and he would take eight months to recuperate. But Lloyd first had a job to do. He had heard the cries - wails, really - for help, understood officers were involved in a firefight at the Burbank Ramada, and knew it was bad. Really bad. “I considered running for it,” he said, referring to the hotel about a quarter-mile away.

BURBANK — As four 13-year-old students passionately debated about the use of torture in interrogations, a bystander from their audience was unwillingly thrown into the mix. “Imagine little Nick Meyer, what if he was friends with a terrorist?” asked Dana Williams, referring to one of her smallest classmates. “Should we torture him?” Nick, 13, who had recently finished debating in front of the class about illegal immigration, quickly hid his now-red face behind his tie, part of the special attire he had worn for his presentation.

Halloween is upon us, and that means one thing: It’s time for Matt to get in costume and head to the theater to see the newest Saw movie, “Saw IV.” Fans of blood, guts and torture should cut a piece of time from their busy schedule and see the continuation of this gruesome franchise. Everyone else should avoid this production and spend a little extra time with the family carving up the perfect jack-o’-lantern. “Saw IV” picks up where “Saw III” left off, and that’s what makes the story so amazing.
