How do you feel about a judge forcing a criminal to engage in religious activities?
If a judge forces a convicted individual to interact in the religion of the judge's preference, do you think it violates the convicted person's rights? What about forcing sex offenders or murderers to attend church or therapy or treatment offered by a religious organization? What if it is not your religion?
Yes, it violates the convicted person's right & furthermore, it is against the Constitution which advocates freedom of religion. The judge is an authoritarian *&^% dictator. No one has the right to force people to have a religion or to undergo religious activities. Religion is a relic from the past Such a judge would be classified as an unthinking, instinctive retrogressive. Religion isn't the panacea for criminal activities.
Let the convicted individual serve time or indulge in community service activities. Let's also put psychological &/or psychiatric therapy(without the medication) in the mix. Such things would benefit the individual far more than nonsensical & moronic religious activities.
I think if it is presented as an alternative to a prison sentence, then it should be a choice made by the criminal. In the past, the Supreme Court has not decided in favor of the judges. Neutering sex offenders because they have a high rate of recidivism.
This one might even be deemed a violation of the 1st amendment. Construing the judge as a part of the state forming a religion. I am sure the ACLU will be on it.
