My question is what does this dude have to do? Just go to Church? That's a bit on the BS side. If he had to work their soup kitchens or outreach programs or something like that; ok. But if it's just that he has to go to Church on Sunday it doesn't sound like much of a punishment. Of course, if this were a drug related possession crime, I would probably say no punishment anyway.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

personally I think it is a stupid idea, the community would be better served by putting these criminals in orange jumpsuits and have them pick up trash from the side of the road every sunday
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Then there is anyone who could face ridicule and/or condemnation by a church for not wanting to be religious or involved in organized religion, but is trying to suck it up to make up for their mistake or even just save the community money. They should not face a relatively worse punishment just due to their faith or lack there of.

No specifics are mentioned about what going to church would involve. Are we talking attending services or doing community service for the church?
Depending on the specifics, I would pick the church over jail time. I know more about Christianity than most Christians so I could easily fit in, plus the Divine is my best friend
