Cruel? Unusual? We Report, You Decide

Hat tip to Supernatural Rabbit Scribe for this story, which about made me fall out of my chair. Which is more shocking, I wonder - that a Michigan court might actually send a man to jail for refusing to convert to Pentecostalism, or that I find myself completely agreeing with the ACLU? I'll have to work that out later.

In the meantime, let me announce that I fully support creative sentencing. For example, Pentecostal potheads should be forced to convert to Catholicism. I'll come up with more on Monday. It's late.
