← Secular society upset by Judge Cherie decision

Hmmm...she just stated out loud what many judges base their decisions on, so she's less hypocritical. It's the old "I'm shocked, shocked that there's gambling going on here". "Here's your winnings sir". "Oh, thank you".

If Blair would have just stuck to the no-past-history-of-crime and kept her comments on religion to herself (as a smart judge would do) she'd be fine. Her main problem here was stupidity.

As Mitch stated, many prisoners become "born again" knowing they will get released earlier. If they're already religious, they sure bring that up.
