Interesting establishment clause case in Alabama


#1

Should a Muslim prisoner be forced to have a Christian pastor in the death chamber when they are executed?


#2

No. It’s a stupid law. He should be able to have the type of clergy he wants in the death chamber or none at all if he chooses.


#3

I got to page 10 and thought…are you kidding me…why is the state pushing this ignorant issue? There is no reasonable or legal basis presented by the state in what I read. The man being executed’s requests are reasonable and should be accommodated IMO.


#4

Nope.


#5

This may be one of those very rare issues on which everyone on this forum agrees.

And to echo Smyrna, why is the state of Alabama fighting this so vehemently?


#6

No, we have freedom of religion, if he does not want a pastor in the room they should not have one there.
