Cherie Booth's "religious man" sentencing did not constitute misconduct
The OJC is totally off-base. Whatever happened to all men are equal before the law? Clearly Ms. Booth's decision was affected by the fact that the defendant was a religious man. That IS misconduct. If it's not, it should be.
This would suggest that those who claim they hold religious beliefs get a lighter sentence than someone who claimed to be an aetheist. This amounts to outright discrimination (against those secular) and should rightfully be complained about.
Spirtual beliefs should not be allowed to be used as a get out of jail free card, nor should they form the basis (or part of the basis) for criminal sentencing.
