    I'd take jail, at least they are honest about their sexual desires.

    So you would choose taking it in the ass versus watching people take in the ass? Not sure it's their sexual desires that are being displayed here lol.

    yes. unlike in church where the priests and ministers are sexual hypocrites, prison rape takes place without any illusions.

    Plus, in prison, child molesters are ostracized and despised, not supported...

    supported, funded, excused, defended, & harbored. Child molesters have a good life in the Church.

    And, guess what? For all those saying "hey, a person with no religion or a religion without a place of worship participating could just sit in the back row and sleep/play video games/etc.", you would be wrong. Not only does the person have to attend church, they also have to answer questions about the service.

    The Restore Our Community program, called Operation ROC, was developed for those convicted of first-time misdemeanors, offering them the opportunity to either attend church once a week for a year and answer questions about the services, or go to jail and pay a fine. Right away, the program sparked controversy.
    Not that this is much of a surprise to me. I figured it wasn't going to be that easy for people to just show up and blow it off. This definitely makes it more like an indoctrination program, since a person is going to be expected to learn the religion for a year, whether they agree with it or not.

    Even offering other alternatives such as community service still does not change the issue that those who already attend church regularly are going to be getting away with a crime as if it didn't happen, since such a "punishment" really wouldn't change their lives at all except maybe adding a test into it every so often, which they most likely have the answers for anyway.

    And deciding to go through with this program will cost them money in court battles because I guarantee that someone, most likely the ACLU, will challenge this program.

    still a better option than going to jail and answering questions about how many times a day you get raped in the ass or have to toss a salad.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    people convicted for crimes should face time in jail/prison, be free under very strict probationary terms, or ordered to do lots of community service.

    requiring someone to go to Sunday Christian religious services while NOT being on probation, is ****ing bull**** and unConstitutional.

    And church is still not a better option than community service, which will serve the entire community instead of having someone listening to a sermon

    strawman? when have I said they shouldn't. I'm just saying that FOR THE CRIMINAL, it is a better option to go to church than to go to jail and get butt****ed by big bubba.

    I'd much rather have someone violate my freedom of religion than to violate my rectum
