Unless you factor in the non-religious. When I say "over represented" I mean over Representative in relation to the total population of an area not just the religious. The non-religious are Hugely under represented in prison.
Some people don't want to meet God, I don't believe everyone if they make it into heaven will get to meet God, if these fairy tales even exist. it is my understandin that there are seven levels of Heaven, and seven levels of Hell.
That is a not true statement at all. there are programs if an inmate chooses to get involved. There are jobs that offer a little bit of pay to the inmates commissary account. There are Library's where a inmate can read/study.
I been locked up and i did not give a flying fuxk about religion, however while in solitary confinement I did get closer with a very spiritual way of thinking. The bibles thin pages offer great rolling papers.
I think you missed the point I was making with the word "if". If religion is a way to be good, then why is such and such the case. I was not implying that it was the only way to be good.
Of all the men I met while serving in a prison ministry program, only 2 out of 30 admitted doing their crime. Now either our criminal justice system is fraudulent and incompetent or the convicts themselves are not being honest with themselves or God.
Imagine that, a convict not being honest. The ones I spoke of are those who have truly found God-not those who just pay lip service and go back to their old ways. I should have been more clear on that point-my bad.
Don't you just hate those, " God, get me out of this one" prayers?
Yes, and it looks good on one's resume to say one has found Jesus, when their parole hearing is right around the corner. Fact is, 98% of all convicts return to crime after their release. It is also interesting how many soldiers find God in foxholes.
