"Satanist" being discriminated against? This would be awesome if not for the unfortunate rape/murder involved: http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/World/2010/07/06/14625601.html (article text quoted below) So, there's this guy, and he raped/murdered some girl, and now he's whining about being "discriminated" against because of his religion. At first, I thought that was silly, but after reading the article.... If I were in a position to decide, I'd disbar the prosecution and the judges involved for obvious (blatant, and unreserved) religious persecution, and I'd still put the guy behind bars for the rest of his life (assuming there is good evidence) [I'm not too sure about the whole death penalty thing, but if we're going to allow that penalty in general, I think this offense warrants it]. Sure, I'd let him have his religious trappings at his own expense, but I'm not sure that allowing someone to bring human blood into a prison is a good idea. At that point, maybe he should have thought about that before he raped/murdered some girl? If you were a judge, how would you handle this case? Death row? Allow religious doodads? Allow human blood in the prison? If you're the bar association, should the prosecution/judges face any penalties? Disclaimer: I read a bit about the "church of satan", and it seemed pretty good to me, with the very little amount of time I put into researching it. I'm not the religious sort, so I didn't put anymore time into it. Of course, just about any religion seems pretty good when you only put ~15 minutes into reading their website.
