Beginning Of Chrisharia Law in America?

A judge in Oklahoma sentenced a 17-year-old boy to 10-years of church attendance in addition to completing high school and welding school. Tyler Alred was driving drunk on Dec. 4, 2011 when he hit a tree. The crash killed his 16-year old friend and Alred was charged with manslaughter.

Although the sentence might seem reasonable for a kid making a dumb mistake, this ‘Church-as-punishment’ condition has significant, negative implications.  It’s clearly a violation of the Free Exercise Clause in our First Amendment. And Churches can’t be happy to think of themselves as prisons-with-pews or punishment for criminals.  But worst of all, it continues to blur the line between Church and State.

I personally would also consider it “cruel and unusual punishment” – but that’s just me.

What happens if the kid is a Muslim, atheist, or, God forbid (!) a worshipper of Satan?  Does the kid get credit for going to the local cemetery and spraying 666 on the gravestones?  Can he only serve his time in what the judge considers an “acceptable” Church?

Both the Dum and Alred families agreed to the sentence.  Well, of course they did.  No one favors a young kid going to a hard-ass prison to be some lifer’s bitch.  But somewhere between these two options there must be a sentence which delivers justice without sacrificing American Freedom of – and Freedom from – Religion.

    Six months in a county lock up with 10 years probation would do the trick. If he were caught with another DUI, then hit him with a 10 year sentence. At that point he would deserve to be somebody’s buttboy.

    That judge is delusional about the power of the church to turn someone around, and using religious indoctrination is without question un-American. You and I would find the sentence intolerable, but a lot of those okies go to church all the time anyway. The sentence may not change this kid’s routine at all.
