If torture is wrong today, it was also wrong yesterday.

Not so. Old Testament values differ greatly than New T. values.William Thomas Walsh , in his book linked to above, discusses this very fact in terms of the moral outlook of bygone eras to things such as torture and civil justice.

And the way in which one reacts to an issue of morality (to torture or not to torture) has no bearing on the original point of morality.The value judgement however,interms of how one deals with moral issues is another aspect to civil society separate from the moral question. Of course,some actions can always be described as morally reprehensible yet this seems to be an issue of civil development historically.

Also Inquisitorial torture was very mild by the standards of the day.
