Because very tolerant left leaning folks dont quite understand the meaning of the word tolerant.
    No. We are "all up in arms" because there would be no problem with alleviating that cost by simply offering completely secular alternatives, such as counseling or community service, instead of injecting religion into the options at all.

    This still does not address the preferential treatment and the "get out of jail free card" aspect given to regular church goers though.

    I would not mind this program if there was an option for charge dismissal via a venue other than church attendance, abnd that if you are a regular church goer then you had to do community service instead of just maintaining your normal routine as "punishment".

    It is the imbalance and the preferential treatment that is the issue with this for me, otherwise I would have no problem with this as an option. so long as there was not a class that was not immune to having to make any sort of sacrifice whatsoever.
    But since you only know one or two lines from an article or video you reallhy dont KNOW the answers to any of those questions. Perhaps you should make an inquiry. Let me ask you...should you be picked up as a DUI offender and be given the choice to attend AA or go to jail and pay a hefty fine, which would you choose?

    There are actually mosques in Jefferson county, shows how much you really know.

    of course it's unconstitutional. the mere fact that a judge would offer a choice involving religion is unconstitutional.
    That is false.

    speaking of steaming loads of horse****.

    60% of males in Alabama jails are black, hardly "most" and there are actually more white females in Alabama jails than there are black females.

    There are non-religious AA meetings.

    Speaking of steaming loads of crap...do you actually KNOW if there are any Muslim religous groups in the servicing area? Do you know if they would accept as a condition that you travel to your normal house of worship four counties away provided that you still met weekly and had a weekly check in with the police? Other than just the standard kneejerk liberal response to anything religious...what have hyou got to offer? I mean...besides your usual steaming pile of ****.

    It doesn't matter if I know what he meant. The only thing that ****ing matters is what he said. Jesus ****ING CHRIST you are thickheaded.
