Interesting establishment clause case in Alabama


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


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.


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.




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?


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