The struggle toward the creation of a theocratic state continues…
Corrections Concepts Inc.’s effort to establish America’s first all-Christian prison in Oklahoma has hit some roadblocks, but it is still continuing to move down the pike.
And while the proposal might still be a pipedream for Bill Robinson, the founder of Corrections Concepts Inc., it appears to be inching ever closer to reality.
Robinson recently told the Tulsa (Oklahoma) World that a bonding company had expressed interest in his project — a private prison administered by Christian officials, attended to by Christian guards, adhering to Christian programming and stocked with Christian prisoners — and that full funding for it depended upon states agreeing to send 285 prisoners to the facility.
Wonderful, except that…
“Tax payers should never be forced to support religious indoctrination,” said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. “This scheme is fraught with constitutional problems, and no state should subsidize it.”
In the letters to corrections officials, Americans United attorneys — Legal Director Ayesha N. Khan and Staff Attorney Ian Smith — noted that in 2007, a federal appeals court struck down public funding of an evangelical Christian program at an Iowa prison. The Christian prison in Oklahoma, they say, would likely meet the same fate.
“If the Department were to provide funding to Corrections Concepts’ prison, indoctrination would be the inevitable result…,” Americans United asserted. “And, just as inevitably, the funding of such indoctrination would violate the Constitution.”
How about also introducing Muslim prisons, Jewish prisons and prisons for atheists? And if you’re going that route, then why not have prisons for blacks and others for whites? A Hispanic one would be nice too for all them illegals running around. Once that is done then prisons could be segregated based on sexual orientation. A prison for white, gay, Christians sounds appealing. And here’s a novel idea: why not set up prisons based on political affiliation? I’m sure conservative child rapists would be relieved to know they would never have to shower in the company of filthy libruls.
Sigh. Another screwed up idea courtesy of the clowns at the Christian Taliban…
