week 3 Discussion 2
Religion and Criminal Justice
is the difference between Absolute Divine Command Theory and Moderate Divine
Command Theory? Absolute is like 100% certainty that the divine command theory
is by God alone and that God decides between right and wrong and we are to live
by what God says is right or wrong. Moderate is like saying that some of what
God says is wrong is wrong and some of what Allah says is wrong but they differ
from each other because different faiths have different beliefs.
role should religion play in the making of law and policy in criminal justice?
looking back at the history of the United States and the creation of the
constitution there was a written separation of church and state so that there
is not an absolute religion for the United States so that each citizen can
practice whatever religion they want to. At the same time we have a moral
obligation and as Christians we want to be moral and to do the right thing. I
think that the ten commandments of the bible which were defined by the God I
serve should be the laws that everyone should follow. They cover murder,
adultery, coveting, lying, stealing, and more.
what ways might religion be used in rehabilitative practices? Why should it be
used or why should it not be used?
you look at prisons and the people who are in one they sometimes find a higher
power to serve and they begin to read the bible and live life like they should
and make amends for what they did wrong. I do not think that a specific
religion should be forced on someone or even just religion itself. As citizens
we have the right to practice our religion that we are involved in but we
should not be forced to practice a religion.
