Religion and Criminal Justice

After reading this week’s text that pertains to divine command theory and moderate divine command theory I believe the difference between the two is how much a person relies on divine command theory. An example of absolute divine command theory would be some Islamic societies in the Middle East who practice a strict law directly out of their holy book the Koran. And a moderate example of divine command would be far less traditional Islamic communities that recognize western influences.

When it comes to religion influencing the making of laws we can look at the history of the world. Some can argue that the United States has laws that are derived from the Ten Commandments. However we live in a free country and the constitution protects us citizens from religious prosecution and religion being forced upon us all. So when it comes to religion influencing laws I would say it never should, however morality and ethics a reasonable person maintains shares a close resemblance to relegation.

To use religion as a way to rehabilitate is a move in the right direction for example introducing a non-believer who is an addict to religion and teaching them to use religion to help them in their struggle, I would argue there is no ethical reason why not to. To use religion to rehabilitate by striping that person of their own free will and is in my opinion un-ethical. An example of this would be in the early 1900’s Irish family would sent their “problem citizen” to work in this religious type boarding prison in hopes they could work their way in to heaven by paying off their sins though work for the church.
