What Do You Think About This?

It has been a busy time of year and I don't have a good question for this week. This does kind of amuse me though and should be worth some fun comments.

Atheist Rapist Claims Rights Violated After Sharing Prison Cell With Christian Inmate

An atheist rapist has complained that his human rights were breached by having to share a prison cell with a Christian inmate.

Barman Steven Relf, 40, was jailed indefinitely after admitting raping two women he targeted when he served them drinks in a pub.

Police branded him a "sexual predator" and said he could have had as many as 40 victims.

In a letter to an inmates' magazine, Relf wrote: "I recently had the displeasure of sharing a cell with a Bible-thumping believer."

A source said Relf was "furious" at having to share at Manchester Prison with the Christian convict and wanted him to be "evicted".

He said: "He moaned about how the guy wouldn't shut up about God. He said he wanted to speak to a lawyer about his rights so he could be moved cells."

The other inmate was later transferred.


So, what do you think? Should we be honoring the wishes of atheist rapist on their room assignments?

I worry about his rights as much as he worried about his victims' rights.

Typically, inmates don't get to choose who is placed into a cell with them....that would cause a real logistical nightmare and security concerns. I would guess his cell mate was moved for a reason other than his complaining...

That's rich. Hey, I'll share a cell with that atheist. Give me a half hour with the guy and I'll show him what "human rights violations" really means.

Shoprat, agreed

Sam, thanks

Typically politically correct, they honored the rights of the atheist rapist and transfered the Christian. I fear for England and all of Europe.

Probably did the Christian a favor.
I do agree with Shoprat though.

Only if the First atheist rapist is moved from the oval office.

LomaAlta, I thought the same thing. First bowing to Islam and now this...

Gramma, correct - even common criminals shouldn't have to share a cell with someone with no moral base.

DaBalde, now you know he's not an atheist - he's a Muslim
