    'American Taliban' wins right to group prayer in prison - CNN.com

    Up until 2007, the unit of mostly Muslim prisoners in a prison in Indiana were allowed to gather 3 times a day for prayer. Recently, although they are still allowed to gather, and even listen to the Quran, they have been limited to praying once a week, except for Ramadan. A judge ruled that those rules violate their religious freedoms.

    Valedictorians from public high schools who incorporate prayer into their speech are denied. The Muslim convicted felons have more religious freedoms than American public school students.

    I'm shocked that you would think that Sunni, really, shocked.:rolleyes:

    Actually I think the issue of religious freedom in prison is a tricky one. Being in prison you lose lots of freedoms, and depending on the situation, religion is one of them.

    If a valedictorian or team captain stands up to say a prayer on taxpayer-funded land, the argument is made that it is violation of Church and State. If a Muslim prisoner on taxpayer-funded land is denied prayer less than 3 times per day, it is a violation of religious freedom. Liberals.
