Dominique Ray is Muslim, but apparently, not one of those peace-loving ones we so often hear about because in 1995, Ray fatally stabbed 15-year-old Tiffany Harville so he could snatch her purse and rob her of about 7 bucks.
Ray was convicted in 1999, and has been on death row in Alabama for quite awhile and is finally scheduled to be dispatched on February 7th. Well... maybe...
Suddenly, this 42-year-old murderer is a devout Muslim and that means the state will be violating his precious rights by requiring that a Christian prison chaplain stand near him as he’s put to death.
His lawyers have asked for a stay on his execution while the court considers his request to have an Imam by him during the lethal injection process, but so far, the prison warden has refused and any concessions they’ve made, have not been enough “reasonable accommodation” for this child-killer.
It all reminds me of how so much delicate care went into burying Osama Bin Laden’s body at sea back in 2011. The Obama administration was obsessed with ensuring that the corpse of the mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks that killed almost 3,000 and injured over 6,000, was cleansed as per Islamic requirements.
Why do we spend so much time reasonably accommodating those in society who are amongst the most unreasonable?
