Well I still disagree with all your bible pushing stories. I do have a clue and have not been to jail but am educated and not once in my life has that book of old stories we dont even know are real helped me once. Times have changed and criminals for all we know are dealing with their inner demons because of this book of RULES/Standards that the average person is judged and hated because of some that have read and lived by a book. Not everyone who goes to jail is bad, shit happens and And all those who argue against me Im sure you have your own demons in the closet and just hide behind the bible or church/cults. So judge on but its a book that needs updated and people should open their eyes to realize todays problems and not focus on back then and go by those rules. Stupids.

The two most fruitless time wasting activities that humans are fond of are arguing/discussing politics and religion. I'd just as soon watch chickens peck as to do either one of them.

them stories give the people hope and peace of mind knowing GOD is good and loves everyone no matter what mistakes they make in life,,,and if you never been in jail before,,,how can you know what a prisoner is thinking or needing,,,cuz they wernt getting what they needed from the outside world and jail might be their hitting the bottom part of their life and the stories in the bible would be better for them to read then a newspapper of the times,,,now thats depressing,,,and as far as the stories in the bible being made up,,,nope,,,passed down for generations after generations for a reason,,,the oldest book around,,,plus for being as old as it is,,,it explains all times,,,even todays world,,,thats if you take time and really read it,,,cuz no matter how smart you think you are,,,there is a GOD and there is the devil,,,so good and bad is real,,,the good have a book called the bible to quide them,,,the bad have this worldly ways to guide them,,,

If they are not allowing reading materials like news papers and letters they are poised to get there butts in trouble. May want to bring the following to deputy do rights attention to save the taxpayeys some money in paying out a law suit:

8 Bell v. Wolfish, 441 U.S. 520, 545 (1979)("[P]retrial detainees, who have not been convicted of any crimes, retain
at least those constitutional rights that we have held are enjoyed by convicted prisoners.").

9 See, e.g., Thornburgh v. Abbott, 490 U.S. 401, 404 (1989)(rejecting facial challenge to Bureau of Prisons policy
on incoming publications but leaving open the possibility that the policy might be unconstitutional as applied to
particular publications).

10 Parnell v. Waldrep, 511 F. Supp. 764, 768 (W.D.N.C. 1981); see also Mann v. Smith, 796 F.2d 79, 82 (5th Cir.
1986)(striking down jail's categorical ban on magazines and newspapers); Payne v. Whitmore, 325 F.Supp. 1191,
1193 (N.D. Cal. 1971)(striking down jail's total prohibition on receiving newspapers and magazines by mail).

11 E.g. Beard v. Banks, 548 U.S. 521, 531 (2006)(prison may ban inmates in long-term segregation unit from
receiving newspapers and magazines); Hause v. Vaught, 993 F.2d 1079, 1084 (4th Cir. 1993)(jail holding detainees
for short periods of time may ban prisoners from receiving publications in the mail). But see Parnell, 511 F. Supp. at
768 (striking down publications ban at jail); Mann, 796 F.2d at 82 (same); Payne v. Whitmore, 325 F. Supp. at 1193
(N.D. Cal. 1971)(same).

12 E.g. Morrison v. Hall, 261 F.3d 896, 903-05 (9th Cir. 2001)(striking down regulation limiting prisoners to first
class and second class mail that prevented prisoners from receiving The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and
Montana Outdoors); Prison Legal News v. Cook, 238 F. 3d 1145, 1151 (9th Cir. 2001)(striking down same
regulation as applied to Prison Legal News).

What a bunch of pinko commie bastardized hypocrisy. All you flag waving self proclaimed fine Americas. You wrap yourself in god and country puke but then fail to extend basic constitutional rights to people many whom are sitting in jail without even been tried. Guess you stinking Republicans really do believe in guilty until proven innocent. All you need to leave American we'd be better off without you. I tell you to go to china but they even hate your kind there.

They tend to lean toward fascism in this area, Tim. They don't even have a clue that they do. They like the sound of the word "constitution" but they don't quite grasp all that it means. They think freedom of religion means that one is free to attend any Christian church they like, except for Jehovah's Witness or Pentecostal! LMAO I think I might buy a Muslim prayer rug and insist on praying toward Mecca, next sunday at the buffet.

There you go again (pun intended) I love this country just some of the people (mainly Republicans) are messing it up and need to go. Btw ca has had Republican governors since like forever hell Arny was the grandson of a ss trooper (probably why he was a Republican).

I think the bible is comforting to read , sure there are some scary things or even wild things mentioned in the beginning of the scriptures like stoning's and what not but those were in the (old) testaments it says in the bible that the old has past and basically talks about following the (new)testaments because the rules or expectations from God changed since the birth of Christ the old testaments were pretty much left alone for reading material and for man kind to learn about the beginning of time but God doesn't condone abusing anyone , he sent his son to teach Love , understanding , kindness and hope he set the example for us to follow God knew things were getting way out of hand so he created his sidekick his wonderful son to help lead us all to a better path and way of life . God himself is about forgiveness and if he wasn't he wouldn't have sent Jesus . I am most gracious for his love and kindness and for sparing me from his wrath :)

If you all can believe your all fish that came out of water to become a bunch of baboons surely you can believe there is a little or a lot of truth about the bible . Someone had to exist where did man kind come from and why don't we all look like Baboons ? Something has already proved to be scientifically wrong unless were a bunch of naked clothed monkeys.

oh my god Inn heaven I cant believe it but I actually agree with most of this statement. As a constitutional libertarian obviously I see no harm in the Bible but to ban all other literature for accused inmates who are thus far not plead guilty to or been found guilty of any crime by a jury is ludicrous. 1984 was not meant as an instruction manual. you know on laundry day the girls have to wrap up naked in their sheets whike their jumpsuits are washed? They spend several hours with no clothing except that bedsheet to cover them...that ain't right.
