John Walker Lindh Sues For Prison Prayer Group

Another article on John Walker Lindh and his suit against the federal government regarding infringement of his personal right to practice his religion while incarcerated.  Inmates sometimes claim religion as an excuse to gather in groups and to proselytize their ideology, which may have more to do with racism and gang activity than religion.  On the other hand, our country is built on principles of religious freedom.  It is a tough line to draw.
