Truly this is an issue that cuts across all creeds, all politics, all national boundaries. What a precious thing to have in a time when wedges are being driven between us, that we should remind ourselves of our shared values and our common humanity.
In that vein, I thought I'd mention a multi-faith effort called National Religious Campaign Against Torture. There is a petition there that can be signed. If you are a person of faith, why not take a copy with you to your place of fellowship this week?
Finally, a technical note. Those of you using blogger, instructions for adding links to your template can be found here. I find it's best to "republish entire blog" (rather than just "republish index only") if you want the template changes to affect all of your blog (instead of just the front page).
