SCOTUS Ignores First Amendment, Allows Alabama to Force Muslim Man to Have Protestant Chaplain at Execution
Late Thursday night, five justices of the United States Supreme Court made a decision that was in equal parts lazy and cowardly. SCOTUS faced a last-minute appeal from an Alabama death row inmate; that appeal wasn’t about the unfairness of death penalty generally, or about the inmate’s innocence, or even about clemency. It was about the inmate’s request to have a religious figure of his choosing by his side during his execution – and about Alabama’s insistence that only religious figures of its choosing would be permitted, even if that meant a Muslim man’s execution would be presided over by a Protestant chaplain.
