Religion and CriminalJustice

Afterreading this week’s text that pertains to divine command theory and moderatedivine command theory I believe the difference between the two is how much aperson relies on divine command theory. An example of absolute divine commandtheory would be some Islamic societies in the Middle East who practice a strictlaw directly out of their holy book the Koran. And a moderate example of divinecommand would be far less traditional Islamic communities that recognizewestern influences.

When itcomes to religion influencing the making of laws we can look at the history ofthe world. Some can argue that the United States has laws that are derived fromthe Ten Commandments. However we live in a free country and the constitutionprotects us citizens from religious prosecution and religion being forced uponus all. So when it comes to religion influencing laws I would say it nevershould, however morality and ethics a reasonable person maintains shares aclose resemblance to relegation.

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