Re: “Court lets inmate fight for racist literature” (TNT, 6-4).

Is a convicted murderer entitled to receive hate-filled white supremacist material? A lower court says no. But the sixth U.S. Circuit Court of appeals ruled that barring the prisoner from receiving the mailings may violate a federal law “that strengthens religious freedom in prison.”

If there’s a connection between hate-filled white supremacist material and religion I’m missing it.

No wonder our courts are backlogged.
