    I'd you're honestly interested in understanding the position feel free to explain what logical gap you're not following.

    Yes, many have found Christianity (or Islam) after entering prison but do you have any stats on what their beliefs were before entering prison?

    It'd be blindly optimistic and intellectually dishonest to assume the percentage would be significantly lower than the percentage in the general population.

    So you are just sharing your feelings with me?

    I don't have data that supports or rejects your hypothesis that prisons increase religiosity, I only have data that shows religiosity, especially Christianity is very high in prisoners.

    I'd think the burden of proof would be on you to display any compelling religion shift that prisons create.

    But CB refuses to see that a first step to a theocracy doesn't mean we're necessarily going to go all the way there, as long as we have people and a court system that stop those kinds of endorsements. Just because we haven't become a theocracy yet doesn't mean we haven't taken this step in the past.
    So why didn't the United States become a theocracy during the first 200+ years of having Christain displays on government property?

    I believe you, the ACLU and all troublemaking atheists here in the US should practice what you preach. All of you should travel to ISIS territory in Syria and Iraq and demand that your atheist and multicultural ideas be represented near the public beading of infidels.

    Clearly he supports it.

    It's difficult to take the word of those who ae in jail as they'll tend to say whatever you want to hear. But we've both probably heard prisoners say they have 'found God' in prison.

    You break a society by first breaking their culture. That's the intent here.
