Church: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

A criminal was recently sentenced to church as punishment for his crimes:

With a lengthy and violent criminal record to his name, Pachino Hill is going to church.

Hill, 29, of Davenport was sentenced Wednesday by Scott County Associate Judge Christine Dalton to a counseling program offered by Third Missionary Baptist Church. She also ordered him to attend church there eight consecutive Sundays, to pay a fine and be on probation for one year.

To me this looks like cruel and unusual punishment. Not only that, but I imagine its a bit counterproductive to order a criminal to worship, for eight consecutive Sundays, the self-professed highest-scoring murderer ever: the Christian God.

If I were in this guy's position, I would have requested to attend worship services provided by the Church of Satan, just to expose the silliness of the order, and to piss off judge Dalton of course. Failing that, I would try to attend some atheist church service or even a Universal Life Church service.

But hey, I'm an atheist, which means I'm far less likely to be facing prison time than a theist is anyway.

Why is it that so many sitting judges are complete whackjobs? My mother's long-term lawyer was the most scatterbrained and incompetent person I ever met that passed the bar. Of course she became a judge.

This website is ridiculous and offensive for religious people (i'm note one of these, but i believe in afterlife,because there are a lot of proof). Inhuman and immoral ? Where are the "inhuman" and "immoral" things in the matter of afterlife ?

Maybe you should visit this website.

check it out and comment.

Hey guess what as an atheist your just as damn likely to end up in jail getting raped by somebody. Hell judging from some of the criminals I have seen your more likely.

on that website, not 1 fucking argument is based on logic, not surprising considering its a dumbfuck lawyer trying to provide a "case" for the afterlife.

The day I believe in purple fairies floating around my fucking head is the day I'll consider "out of body" experiences and paranormal bullshit as "evidence." It's people like you in society who are dumbing America the fuck down.

Take a few philosophy classes ESPECIALLY one in logic and then come back and tell me that bullshit would even get past a fucking nine year old.

Hey other anonymous. At least that lawyer who is probably smarter than your stupid ass has something. What do people who don't believe in the afterlife have? Nothing.

Your militant atheist bullshit is going in the trash bin of history just like Communist atheism. Fucking atheists like you would destroy America if they actually had power. But too bad atheists are such a small and pathetic minority that even the politicians don't want to sink to their level.

If you think that the lawyer has a good case for the afterlife you are one bullshit salvation story away from becoming a fucking Branch Davidian.

What do free-thinkers have? The ability to think for themselves. The ability to use LOGIC which is kind of important, you know, cause otherwise you get your beliefs from other douchebag people, not yourself.

But if your so narrow-minded that you can't comprehend why that website is not logical, then I'm glad these people are feeding you bullshit and your choking it down like an animal. you don't deserve a liberated existence. You will die having lived for NOTHING. And there's nothing that sucks more than that, so your personal god be with you then, thats all I can say. said...

Thank you, much appreciated! Wanted to share a bit of an article written by J.S. Thompson on the subject matter titled “Criminals and Punishment for Crimes in the Afterlife” as follows…

Those who commit heinous crimes and get away with it on the earth and many of those who were caught and punished have a big surprise awaiting them when they die. When these criminals die, they are met by their family as we all are, but they are also met by the family(s) of the victim(s)! For most of us, when we leave the earth, it is a joyous occasion, the best day of our lives but for those who have harmed the innocent, it is tragic! Criminals find out very quickly that they are in peril, as they stare out across the sea of angry faces.

A life review is a very advanced 3D interactive film and all of us get one shortly after we die to the earth and are initiated into the next society, or what I refer to as “solamenta. A life review is like a debriefing of our short time on earth.

Out there we are represented by large families that are responsible for our actions while we are on the earth. When a crime is committed, there is a prearranged punishment awaiting the criminal that has been established and agreed upon by both the family of the criminal and the family(s) of the victim(s).

It is not about revenge, it is about transformation! It is well known by those out there solamenta, that transformation and true positive evolution is a product of accountability; accountability for crimes and proper praise and reward for accomplishments. Here on the earth, judicial systems are not always fair but these disparities are made right solamenta. Out there, the truth can be seen because it has been recorded! Out there, there is no doubt about who was right and who was wrong when all of the evidence had been documented and recorded! Unresolved issues follow us into our next lives. So purging the negativity and weakness of character is imperative. We do not get out of anything… ever! [more….]
