Re: “Jail limits religion, lawsuit suggests” (TNT, 9-23).
In America we have the right of freedom of religion. I am grateful for this freedom. However, I would not expect to have all my rights retained while in jail. If I break the law, I make the statement, “I do not agree with this nation’s laws or its freedoms.”
You must ask, “What kind of rights would I have if I were in jail in a predominately Muslim nation?”
In the U.S., we provide better conditions than a lot of other nations’ jails. I’ve visited many jails/prisons in Uganda, and there is no comparison to the luxury in our jails here.
In the U.S., no one is denied the right to their religion, but security dictates when, how and at what times they can practice it.
Stay out of jail, and you can worship in the freedom this nation allows.
