    Have there been delinquent Muslims in Miinette Bay who have been denied this option or is this another straw man?

    I have to say that I would agree with you if the usual punishment worked to punish, or teach a lesson, but it doesn't work.

    I'm not saying that giving a criminal a choice between jail or Religion is the cure for the problem, but liberals have made prison less punishment and more like staying in a really cheap motel next to a greasy spoon restaurant.

    Do you have a record of how many delinquents of another religion in Minette Bay have been denied their options?

    The small town communities/governments of Bumpoke Alabama should have no more right to force religion onto people than Washington DC. It has nothing to do with where it is happening or how big the government is and everything to do with the right of a person to not be forced to participate in religious practices of any kind that they don't want to and to be given equivalent punishment sentences regardless of their religious beliefs.

    Gee, that's really complicated. I guess they'll never come up with an answer to that one.

    I'm not talking about sending them to prison. Community service and rehab programs are much better options for alternative punishments.

    It's actually Bay Minette, Alabama. Don't get your hopes up.

    Apparently you haven't read the part where no one is being forced. It is an option. that's all.

    Come up with a solution to accommodating my religion since, afaik, there is no established religion that meets to discuss my personal religious beliefs at all, since there is no need for one. My religious beliefs do not require that others need to know about them for a better afterlife. It would be stupid to spend any money to establish a place to talk about such beliefs when a person's home would be quite fine for doing so, an informal kinda thing. And I highly doubt the judge would go for hour long meetings in my home every week to discuss these things with my family.

    Why not Wiki for the information?
