Hmmm. Why would the ACLU wish to prevent a judge from SENTENCING ANYONE to
attend religious service and/or religious instruction as community service?
Perhaps the press release quoted by Art misstates the issues and resolution,
but if not, it seems to me that preserving the broadest array of potential
forms of alternative correction is a good idea and that the deliberate
exclusion of religious programs is a noxious one.
Is there more detail Art?
