Instead of worrying about filling inmates' heads with superstition while incarcerated how about taking a look at the whole war on drugs thing and how many people are needlessly in prison in the first place?

Why do we beg for religious partners for people AFTER they are incarcerated.... but we BAN religious partners from our schools?

I wonder not banning God from our schools would result in less of our children ending up in prison and needing religious partners to straighten them out AFTER they are in big trouble?

Ya know... kinda the "fence on the cliff" instead of an "ambulance in the valley" to help them once they go off and get hurt.

Seems like there was LESS crime and incarceration before we banned God from our schools.

Would that be ANY religious partners or just the ones that preach the God of our choice (i.e., the God of Abraham)?
