What the @#*%*!!!

Good sweet [fill in your deity here]... the inmates ARE running the asylum...

Barb Hill, director of policy development for the John Howard Society, said maintaining special diets during incarceration is critical.

“We’re a multicultural society. Just like there are lots of people on the outside who come from different religious and ethnic groups, the same happens in prison and we have to respect their religions,” she said.

“I know how important it is for people to maintain their religious diets.”
Just one small question here Barb... if these guys are so freakin' religious... how in gawd's name... DID THEY END UP IN PRISON?

(h/t ffof)

I'm thinking we should be as sensitive to their religious requirements as they were to their victim's.

Not to many religious consider it an Honor or a privilege to be raped, murdered or stolen from. But then I tend to stick with mainstream religion. Pity me.
