Religion and Criminal Justice
After reading this week’s text that pertains todivine command theory and moderate divine command theory I believe thedifference between the two is how much a person relies on divine commandtheory. An example of absolute divine command theory would be some Islamicsocieties in the Middle East who practice a strict law directly out of theirholy book the Koran. And a moderate example of divine command would be far lesstraditional Islamic communities that recognize western influences.
When it comes to religion influencing the makingof laws we can look at the history of the world. Some can argue that the UnitedStates has laws that are derived from the Ten Commandments. However we live ina free country and the constitution protects us citizens from religiousprosecution and religion being forced upon us all. So when it comes to religioninfluencing laws I would say it never should, however morality and ethics areasonable person maintains shares a close resemblance to relegation.
To use religion as a way to rehabilitate is amove in the right direction for example introducing a non-believer who is anaddict to religion and teaching them to use religion to help them in theirstruggle, I would argue there is no ethical reason why not to. To use religionto rehabilitate by striping that person of their own free will and is in myopinion un-ethical. An example of this would be in the early 1900’s Irishfamily would sent their “problem citizen” to work in this religious typeboarding prison in hopes they could work their way in to heaven by paying offtheir sins though work for the church.
Religion and criminal justicework in hand especially when dealing with criminal cases. The main reason forthis is because all laws applied in the bible have been used to guide andprotect citizens in different countries like America. In your post you posted somenegative and positive effects concerned with religion and criminal justice.Positive effects related to the post. Many people argue that the laws governingAmerican government are derived from the Ten Commandments in the bible. Thismight not be the exact assumption because the laws are made to cater andprotect human rights in the country (Williams, & Arriago, 2012). You did agreat job in your post encouraging people to use religion and to encourage others from doing evilthings. Additionally, people in Americado not attendant jobs in Sundays. Relating to the Ten Commandments, there is alaw which says that people should keep the Sabbath day holy. For this reason,the positive side of the positive is encouraging people to keep religion in thefore front in their life struggle.
Islamic religion has beenusing religion to handle some cases in their community. Many people have beenconverted to Islamic because they have been following correct measures fordeveloping their country. This is the reason why many people have used religionto rehabilitate people to move in the right direction. It is true to say thatthe post encourages people to use religion to rehabilitate people such asintroducing non-believers to use religion for them to prosper in life becausereligion is full of wise words which are important. You also encourage us touse religion to rehabilitate people would have wronged and this would encouragethem to use religion in their life struggle.
Alternatively, the post alsohas negative effects related to criminal justice. For example, sending peopleto prison to pay for their sins would not be important because many people havefamilies which they need to take care off. For this reason, sending them toprison would diminish their developments and this would be ironical accordingto the Ten Commandments. On the other hand, some Islamic in the Middle eastpractice strict laws directly from their holy book the Koran which might notfavor the entire community because eachreligion has its own holy book (Williams, & Arriago, 2012. For this reason,some laws may affect negatively on some people because they use different ideasfrom their religion. Therefore, each religion should use God’s way to rehabilitatethose people who have wronged through using indirect laws from the bible orholy book. Through this, people would grow up spiritually and avoid immoralbehaviors.
